Back Pain & Sciatica

“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, an hour, a day, or a year. Eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever”. – Lance Armstrong

Alternative approaches in the treatment of low back or sciatic pain, that do not involve drugs or invasive surgical procedures, are gaining in popularity. Increasingly, alternative and complementary approaches are found to be more effective and efficient, as compared to ‘traditional’ medical or rehabilitative programs. At some point in time, 8 out of 10 individuals in the United States will suffer from sudden or chronic back or sciatic pain.

POWER IN MOTION’S PHILOSOPHY

Where your experiencing pain, may not be where the true problem lies. Our body is a totally connected, interlocking system that needs to be evaluated and treated as such. The failure of or certainly the less than desirable outcomes experienced from the traditional medical and therapeutic models, are due to a ‘symptom based’ treatment approach, rather than an origin based, critical thinking strategy.

Back pain accompanied by sciatic pain, may be compounded or caused by flat feet, dysfunction of the knee or hip, sacroiliac joint dysfunction or tailbone injuries. These factors cause postural imbalances, creating biomechanical stress, from head to toe. We consider all of these factors and more, to determine what is contributing to the total picture of pain.

A pain-free low back and the resolution of sciatic pain, is dependent upon a well-balanced, skeletal structure. Longstanding, imbalance will eventually affect the structure, creating excessive wear, tear and break down. Injuries of the joints, spine and soft tissue are the result of a poorly aligned structure. The musculoskeletal system is our gateway into the treatment of low back pain and sciatica.

TREATMENT GOALS

Power In Motion‘s goal is to optimize structural alignment, to reduce/eliminate back pain and sciatica and recurrence of it in the future. IMT is a delicate, hands-on therapeutic intervention, which restores the normal function of the musculoskeletal system. IMT improves the function of the nervous, circulatory and immune systems, expediting healing and pain reduction. External factors which can contribute to back pain and sciatica include but are not limited to the following:

  • Poor Posture: Sitting and Standing
  • Old Injuries: Sports, auto, traumatic falls, etc., in childhood & adult years
  • Poor Hydration: Critical to the health and integrity of the spine and discs
  • Lack of Exercise: The more sedentary…the more stiff one becomes
  • Lack of Stretching: Flexibility decreases compression and pain
  • Improper Use of the Back: Assessing good body mechanics
  • Inflammatory Triggers: Food, allergies, repetitive strain
