Relief From Back Pain In Just 5 Steps

Have you been plagued by only getting short term relief from back pain no matter what you try?

It’s a very common story. There’s a reason that more than 80% of people who have had back pain once will have it again and again, but it doesn’t have to be that way. There is a key idea that is missed in most treatments for back pain. Once you understand this, you’ll easily see why the treatments you’ve already tried have not given you relief from back pain for longer than a few days, weeks, or months.

You have two choices.

The Steps Include:

  • Alignment – do bones really go out of place?
  • Stability – why do I feel so weak?
  • Mobility – why am I so tight?
  • Movement – why do I feel so ungraceful?
  • Strength – am I just getting old?

Step 1: Alignment

Without good alignment, muscles cannot work properly. Imagine you tie one end of a rope to a pole and you walk away with the other end of the rope until it’s pulled tight. In this case, the rope is your muscle, and both you and the pole represent the bones that the muscle connects. Now imagine you take two steps forward. This puts slack in the rope (or muscle) which means that it no longer provides the right amount of tension. This leads to small muscles not being able to do their job to stabilize your skeleton, so larger muscles start to do the job for them.

Have you ever been told that your bones are “out of place”?

A lot of people have been told this and end up scared that everything they do will “knock out” their alignment. Many people have been led to believe that their bones will just up and decide to move to a whole new location. I’ve got great news for you…there are lots of things holding your bones in place. When something is “out” or misaligned it simply means that it’s slightly rotated or stuck to the bone next to it. When you get “adjusted” it simply means that it’s helping the bone rotate back or get un-stuck.

The first step to getting rid of your back pain is making sure you’re properly aligned. This is not the “pop your back” kind of alignment. It has to do with your muscles just as much as it does your joints.

Read on to find out about our 5-step process for getting relief from back pain. The steps include:

  • Alignment – do bones really go out of place?
  • Stability – why do I feel so weak?
  • Mobility – why am I so tight?

Step 2: Stability

The little muscles around all of your bones are responsible for creating stability. Think of a teeter-totter. The middle of the teeter-totter is stabilized to the ground. This allows children or over-zealous adults to bounce and move each other around on either end. If the teeter totter wasn’t bolted to the ground it would slide around or need something else to hold it down (like a large muscle that compensates for weak smaller ones).

Stability training needs to happen right when the body is in good alignment. This is what helps your body remember that alignment. As stability is created, this allows all the larger muscles that have been compensating for these muscles to relax.

Step 3: Mobility

After you’ve achieved good alignment and stability, mobility work will really be effective. This is where most people start.

The people who start here will express frustration at always needing to go to the chiropractor, massage therapist, or needing to use tools like foam rollers and lacrosse balls to get just a little bit of relief. Then the tightness slowly creeps back in.

Does that sound familiar?

If it does, it’s likely that steps 1 and 2 need to be addressed. The large muscles are still overactive and they are compressing the joints, causing both muscular and joint stiffness.

When you apply mobility after creating good alignment and stability, results start to last a lot longer.

Step 4&5: Movement & Strength

This is where it all comes together. If you’ve been in pain for longer than a few days it’s likely that you have some new movement habits. It’s necessary to get rid of those bad habits because they’ll likely contribute to the injury coming back or creating a new injury. This is where working with a specialist really comes in handy.

Working with a specialist can help with:

  • Getting you back to being active.
  • Helping you to heal naturally so you don’t have to rely on medication.
  • Keep you healthy and avoiding dangerous spinal surgery years down the road.
  • Get your confidence back.
  • Enjoy time with friends and family without worrying about your back.
