Even when you’re in good shape back pain can find you. Our contemporary work and leisure lives include so much sitting and sedentary activity. You may exercise regularly in order to get stronger and still find that the most unusual things can cause a sudden twinge or a chronic issue.
At least 80% of U.S. adults suffer from back pain; you’re not alone. Unfortunately, 88% of those people who suffer, say it recurs throughout the year.
Chances are if back pain finds you regularly you’ve tried more than one approach to find relief. There are so many options it can be mind-boggling to consider them, especially at a time when you are in pain and willing to do anything for relief. I know because this was me. I was in good shape and am again today, but an injury took me months to recover from acute pain and trauma to my lower back in my mid twenties. For the last 28 years I’ve had to listen carefully to keep myself fit in the specific ways that keep me both strong, flexible and able to do all the things I love to do.
I nearly had to give up a graduate assistantship because I was worried I’d not be able to handle the physical activity required to teach six hours of group exercise a week, not to mention the up and down activity to help assess and test our clinic participants. My entire career plans were threatened. What was a really scary, painful, and slow process for me though ended up being one of the best ways to teach me how to relate to my clients. I’ve continued to study back pain, prevention, and best practices to make my weakness a strength for helping others for over 32 years.
When my pain was at it’s highest level I tried muscle relaxers, stretching, chiropractors, massage, all kinds of exercise, no exercise, and I’ve known clients over the last 30 years who have tried many more techniques. Sorting through what works, when each back pain problem is different, is hard. That’s why I created a course.
