It is estimated that 80% of the US population is affected with low back pain sometime in their lifetime. This results in billions of dollars lost in productivity and through expenses incurred for prescriptions of anti-inflammatory drugs, through strong painkillers to physical therapy, chiropractic and other therapies and often surgical intervention. Yet mainstream medical practice in general has no clear understanding of the real cause of low back pain.{{more}}Modern MRI imaging can show bulging or herniated disk. The medical approach is to remove the offending bulge that is putting pressure on nerves which results in pain. Most often the treatment to alleviate the pain does not address the cause of the problem. Without correcting the cause, the likelihood of more back problems is likely.A pelvic imbalance places force on the lower back. This causes the lumbar vertebrae to open more space on one side allowing the disk to bulge or herniated. Pelvic imbalance can be activated by knee, ankle or foot problems.The sacrum can rotate in supporting the spine and fail to return to its proper position and put a torque force on the lower back. The ribcage can sustain injury which limits its normal movement; with each breath your back is sent torque or side-bending signals.In most cases these causes are not considered, let along addressed. This results in greater cost to the client in pain, debility and increased medical cost.Minimal intrusion on the body is usually the most effective, less painful and less expensive.
