Lower back pain plagues millions of Americans every year, and is the chief contributor to sick days from the work place. What most Americans fail to understand is the cure is definitive and works extremely well if done properly and consistently. Personal training to cure lower back pain is one solution that I offer clients. I am fortunate to have a comprehensive medical background and a well respected certification as a medical exercise specialist and core conditioning expert. I have successfully treated hundreds of individuals with lower back pain to the point of full functionality.
The core is the group of muscle and supportive tissues that stabilize the lower back, hips and anterior torso. A stabile core is a happy functional core. An unstable core means your body can and will have to cope with spontaneous periods of debilitating lower back pain and sciatica. Personal training to cure lower back pain includes a group of selected exercises done to encourage normal lumbar spine and pelvic rhythm. Personal training to cure lower back pain also involves conditioning and learning to activate intrinsic and extrinsic muscles and ligaments that keep stacked vertebrae stable. Unstable vertebrae mean nerve impingement, foraminal stenosis and chronic inflammation to soft tissue structures. Inflammation to soft tissue structures leads to excessive build up of intrinsic muscle calcium. The result of chronic inflammation leads to loss of flexibility and function in 92% of Americans.
Proper personal training to cure lower back pain begins with a flexibility program to encourage proper body range of motion. An experienced personal trainer with a degree in medical exercise can easily evaluate the spinal deformities and apply reciprocal flexibility and conditioning applications to treat the imbalance. It is important to eliminate excessive anterior pelvic tilting, excessive lordosis and kyphosis of the thoracic spine. These three spinal anomolies all result from one another and cause a horrific redistribution or load on vertebral discs. The end result in 91% of sufferers is vertebral disc dislocation and eventual rupture. The only cure at this point is invasive surgery.
Proper personal training to cure lower back pain also emphasizes controlled measures to strengthen weak muscles and condition muscle fibers that are too lax or flexible. Symmetry of agonists and antagonistic muscle fibers is vitally important to prevent spinal cord imbalance. I
n addition it is important that the medical exercise personal trainer educates you on proper postural exercises that you can incorporate at the work place and at home. Unfortunately prolonged sitting has an adverse effect on spine stability, pelvic tilt and shoulder posture. All occupational hazards.
Personal training to cure lower back pain is a practice that only a few qualified personal trainers know how to do. It is complicated, mentally challenging and requires a keen eye. A deep understanding of human anatomy and physiology is a must as well as comprehensive training as a Medical Exercise Specialist. Medical Exercise is the bridge between being a personal trainer and a physical therapist. In fact Medical Exercise is taught by licensed Doctors of Physical Therapy. I encourage anyone dealing with lower back or neck pain issues to be proactive in taking care of their painful unhealthy spine. There are a host of greater complications that can arise from spine neglect including “Drop Foot” paralysis, Spinal stenosis, and Spondyloisthesis. And trust me you don’t want to experience any of those maladies.
