What causes back pain?
Pain in the body is the result of blood and energy flow not reaching cells in the body due to scar tissue build-up and blockages. Back pain is one of the most common areas for people to suffer with pain.
We are like a building. The body is designed to support its structure through putting conscious attention in maintaining its foundations. If you build something on a foundation that is weak, problems will arise that can be devastating, not to mention costly.
The body has a number of foundations that are designed to keep us upright, and to support the approximate 100 trillion cells, so they are kept in place to perform their function. If we lose the foundation, the cells migrate from their rightful place and can’t due their job. Not only that, when proper foundations aren’t observed, the body creates false walls and false floors in the attempt to keep us upright. The problem is these false walls and floors consist of compressed fascia and act like scar tissue. This blocks blood and energy flow to cells causing pain and dysfunction.
Look at how the average person stands. Most people are hyperextend at the knees, causing the pelvis to tilt forward. This forward migration creates a build-up of compressed fascia in the front of the pelvis, which can hold the body out of alignment with a force up to 2000lbs/square inch. This holding pattern is causing the muscles in the back to chronically contract, in an attempt to stabilize the body. The problem is that this isn’t the job of theses muscles, and they fatigue and experience pain. If the alignment isn’t corrected, over time the discs can herniate and the organs the pelvis supports become squished and cease to function efficiently.
There is a lot of confusion for people about what to do when the body is in pain and function is minimized, but the answers are generally simple, if we understand the cause of our suffering.
For most situations, what needs to happen is the tissue holding us out of alignment needs to release, then it needs to be supplied with oxygen to inflate the space that was created, then we need to make some basic postural changes to maintain proper alignment. This is what Block Therapy does.
Don’t wait any longer to be free of pain.
