Where you’re at…
You have ongoing pain in your lower back, and specific movements or doing specific tasks make the pain worse. You may be waking up at night because of the pain.
You may also have ‘numbness’ or ‘pins and needles’ in the leg on the affected side.
You are unable do some of the most simple things without pain, like brushing your teeth, or sitting and standing for long periods and you’re not able to be as active as you’d like to be because of the pain.
You’re fed up of being in pain and worried you’ll never get back to normal.
You’ve probably tried pain killers and gels, but they haven’t really helped. You may have already sought professional help, but that hasn’t helped either and you don’t know where to turn.
The problems you have right now…
You can’t quite put your finger on what caused your pain and whatever your doctor has suggested hasn’t worked. You feel frustrated that you’re just not able to take part fully in life.
You feel frustrated and depressed and don’t feel like you can take part in all the activities you enjoy. You sometimes have to cancel attending events because you just don’t feel up to it due to the pain.
What you need help with right now…
What would help you right now, is to understand the root cause of your back pain, rather than continuing to try to mask the symptoms with pain killers and anti-inflammatories to get you through the day.
You need help understanding how factors such posture, biomechanics, core function, ergonomics, muscular strength, nutrition, gut health, stress, hormonal status, rest and sleep could have played a role in causing your injury in the first place and how these factors will be crucial in the proper healing process of the injured tissues.
You need someone who can advise, motivate and support you every step of the way, someone who understands what is required to create the conditions for healing and who has walked that path himself and taught many others to do the same.
How can the BodyCHEK ‘Overcome Your Back Pain’ package help you?
I will help you understand the root causes of your back injury and teach you how to approach the condition holistically via expert advice on posture correction, exercise, nutrition and lifestyle factors.
The ‘Overcome Your Back Pain’ package will start by assessing your posture and biomechanics, then by setting out a corrective exercise programme to improve posture and core stability, whilst ensuring you also take care of other essential factors, such as hydration, nutrition, sleep and rest.
We will go on a journey, step by step empowering you to take charge of your exercise, nutrition and lifestyle plan, plus the option of some hands-on manual therapy if needed. The regularity in which you see me will depend on the complexity of your case, how long you’ve been injured, your exercise training history, and how much improvement you need to make around nutrition and lifestyle factors, plus your locality and how feasible online sessions might be.
Once you begin to learn how to move your body correctly, and start to improve posture and core stability, along with the appropriate lifestyle changes, you will begin to see changes in how well you can move and a reduction in your pain. Active Release Techniques®, a very effective form of hands-on treatment I offer can be required for some back conditions and can be included in the package or as an added extra.
You will progress through 3 stages starting with a Corrective Exercise Phase, then when ready, to a Transition Phase, and then finally a Specificity Phase. The phases are carefully managed to ensure the exercise programme doesn’t progress too quickly and cause a re-injury to the injured tissues.
This staged approach ensures a strong conditioning base is developed before adding strength and then specific strength (and possibly power if required) to ensure you are conditioned well enough to do whatever you wish to do, whilst being strong and robust enough to not become re-injured.
