Heal From Chronic Low Back Pain for good

According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) Low Back Pain (LBP) is the most common pain reported by patients to their Dr’s, with over 28% of U.S adults reporting LBP in the prior 3 months, reported in a 2018 study.

The IASP (International Association for the Study of Pain) reported that in 2017, the prevalence of LBP was estimated to be 7.5% of the global population, or around 577.0 million people. 

Needless to say. That’s quite a few people suffering with similar pain, in the same region of the body. If you are currently suffering with LBP, that statistic may offer a little comfort, in that you are not alone.

Of those people with LBP, 85-95% presenting to primary care providers, do not have a specific identifiable pathoanatomical origin for their pain.

This means that healthcare providers face a great challenge in helping patients identify and understand the cause of their pain.
This can also mean that treating the issue is even harder. 

This is why some primary care physicians offer many differing treatments, from opioids, anti inflammatories, to injections and surgical interventions.

Some methods work, most will not and some may actually cause more harm than good. Essentially, these methods are a temporary quick fix, a band aid to the underlying cause of LBP.

The result? Development of chronic pain. Altered body mechanics and movement patterns. Compensations within the body and ultimately frustration and disappointment with the medical system in general. Not to mention the expense.

Over time, how we use and move our body will lead to some form of imbalance, dysfunction and pain, IF we do not help to correct these imbalances and restore strength, stability and flexibility, the cycle of pain will likely continue and worsen with time.

How can you stop this? By addressing the underlying causes, namely muscle imbalances, weaknesses or tightness. 
Sounds too good to be true? Most exercise programs, therapists, chiropractors etc. Will aim to focus on those causes but often don’t consider how those elements of the musculoskeletal system are directly controlled and influenced. 
This is where this program differs.

The body is one big electrochemical reaction. From the heart to the brain to the muscles. The muscles in particular and controlled and influenced by the nervous system. The nervous is influenced by how we breathe. Simply put. If we are able to breathe using our diaphragm more effectively, the parasympathetic nervous system will help relax our muscles, engage our core muscles and ultimately reduce our pain levels. 

This is the key part of Breathe Back to Pain Free Program.

The program consists of 7 x 2 minute exercises, no more than 15 minutes a day to help reduce pain and get you back to feeling confident in how you move again. You don’t need any equipment. Just a space to lay down is all you need.
