Here is a frustration I have. We have all heard that exercise is good for us and, being a health care professional, I am inclined to agree. In fact, I love the term “Exercise is Medicine”. Unfortunately, the waters get a bit muddy when it comes to exercises to help or cure low back pain.
Exercise programs that claim to reduce low back pain, improve low back performance and prevent back pain are plentiful. Recommended exercises for back pain and self-help videos run amok. Try searching Google or YouTube for “Back Pain Exercises”. I just tried it and received 18,900,000 hits on google and 540,000 hits on YouTube. The challenge is one-size-fits-all approaches like this rarely work because each person is unique.
Talk to 10 people who currently have or have had low back pain or sciatica and you will hear that some have done well with one approach while others may have been made worse by that same approach. The trick is learning about your back and understanding what things cause damage and why. Armed with that knowledge, you can then begin deciding which exercises and approaches to your normal activities are helpful vs. harmful.
Only through developing an individual plan, specific to your particular back, can you hope to cure yourself from back pain.
So where do you start? Spine Boot Camp Level One, that’s where!
- One hour per week for six weeks
- Small group supervised classes
- Spine 101 education
- Instruction and exercise guidance
Who is Spine Boot Camp for?
Anyone who wants to free themselves from the shackles of low back pain and sciatica.
Why this course over the multitude of other books and video self-help back pain approaches you might ask?
Briefly, back pain is now generally considered the 20th and 21st-century medical disaster. Significant advances in knowledge, technology, and treatment solutions have certainly not solved the problem. There is even some suspicion that the health care community may have made things worse.
We’re not talking about serious spinal diseases and major neurologic problems. We now have diagnostic procedures and interventions that can help there. The challenge is that almost all of us experience non-specific low back pain at some point in our adult life. A great many of us experience this over and over again, despite going for treatment ad infinitum.
Spine Boot Camp level one isn’t just another back or core exercise class. If you ever hope to get a handle on getting control over your back pain, we will walk you through:
- Causes of back pain
- How your spine works and gets harmed or injured
- What you might be doing without knowing, that is harming your back
- Old school vs. New school modern science-backed treatment approaches
- Healthy approaches to doing your normal activities that spare your spine
- Healthy movement strategies and exercises that will help reduce pain regain strength and flexibility
