About

Whats happening to you? Ok here's the deal you bent over to pick up one of your shoes and whammo, you felt something give, pain shot through your body and you found it very hard to straighten up, oh my god whats happening to me?, will I ever walk normally again? and what about the gym or playing footy with the kid?. These are all things that race through your mind when your back muscles go into spasm.

You struggle into the car and 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, parkinsons disease, dementia and even STD's are displayed with all their ominous warnings and treatments. By the time you get into your consultation you're convinced that your life is on a fastrack downward spiral and then the doctor starts his spiel "Ahhhhh, you're in your thirties, you're getting on a bit, it's around this time that your body starts breaking down" and sends you off for all the obligatory scans and prescribes a course of anti-inflammatories. X-rays, CT scans and if you're really lucky an MRI, days off work, voltaren, panadol, you can't sleep because of the pain and discomfort, it's too painful to even get in the bath. it's around this time that you start feeling a little bit despondent even depressed, stuck in front of the TV feeling helpless, eating potato chips, lollies and biscuits, replacing life giving water with fizzy soft drinks, caffeine and chemical filled diet drinks, comfort food that makes you feel a little bit better but really does nothing to help your condition. sugar is a poison to your body filling it up with toxins that makes your muscles tighter, more constricted and unable to get all the proper blood flow and nutrients they need to function, combine this with lack of movement and it's a wonder you can even muster up the strength to get up and go to the toilet.

Next few days back to the doctors for the results and that's where the next phase starts, you see doctors have to put a name to everything, its a disease, condition or a syndrome, nothing is easy, they bamboozle you with names like degenerative disk disease, prolapsed or sequestered disk. sciatica, piriformis syndrome the list goes on and on and now the medical merry-go round starts.

First of 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 somethings still not right, you still feel tender and afraid to do anything that might aggravate your once indestructible body. You convey this fear to your doctor and he suggests you go back to the gym telling you that weights will strengthen you and your body and will also get rid of some of that weight you have put on over the last few months. So you go back to the gym and the young newly qualified gym instructor gives you a program of the same old isolation machine exercises that helped unbalance your body in the first place. Before you know it you're back to square one, can't sleep, can't get comfortable and in constant pain.

A friend suggests the chiropractor they know, another an osteopath that they saw, then an acupuncturist that helped someone else with a skin problem. Three months later and hundreds of dollars out of pocket and nothing has changed so it's back to the doctor and he refers you to the orthopedic surgeon who wants to operate. Sound familiar?

Stop right there! Numerous studies have show that a very high percentage of people with back pain have nothing more than a muscle imbalance, that's right a simple muscle imbalance, easy to fix and that's what we do. Fast and Permanent!
