You struggle into the car and head down to the Doctor, you're sitting in the waiting room looking around at all the doom and gloom posters on the wall, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Type 2 Diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, Dementia and even STD's are displayed with all their ominous warnings and pharmaceutical and surgical treatments.
all it's off to the physio who will give it some ultrasound
or electronic therapy for 10mins, prescribe some stretching
exercises and then tell you it wont get any better without
pilates, which surprisingly they do right there at their
clinic, just hand over the cash and we'll get you right.
Six weeks later the pain and discomfort has backed off considerably and you can now stop your twice weekly physio appointments, your core feels a little stronger but something’s still not right, you still feel tender and afraid to do anything that might aggravate your once indestructible body.
That's right a simple "Muscle, Fascia, Joint or Feet Imbalance" that leads to a "Pelvis Rotation"
This muscle, connective tissue imbalance, joint and pelvic dysfunction can be the cause of any number of postural pain dysfunctions and syndromes.
When these tight muscles and pelvic dysfunctions are left untreated these imbalances can and do lead to “degenerative spinal conditions” Those tight unbalanced muscles unevenly exert pressure on the spine’s joints, ligaments, tendons and discs.
These same tight muscles force neighbouring vertebrae together closely enough to cause pinched nerve roots that exit the spinal canal, causing pain and numbness in the extremities. They can also cause the vertebrae and pelvis to “twist” out of alignment.
vertebrae are pulled closely together, discs between
the vertebrae may get “squeezed” and eventually break
down (bulge or rupture) from these long-term
These powerful forces will also alter the movement of all the other joints in the body like hips, knees and ankles leading to further injuries and compensations that will eventually cause these joints to break down as well.
To make it really, really simple to understand:-
(a) The muscles on the right side of your body are the same as the muscles on the left side of your body and they have to be the same tension and length, if they are not you will have imbalance problems.
(b) The muscles on the back of your body although they are different to the muscles on the front of your body they still have to work together and have equal strength and tension if some are stronger than the other you will have imbalance problems.
This imbalance not only affects your back it will affect every joint in your body.
