It seems that when your back hurts,
nothing else matters. It is a condition that can stop your life in its tracks. Here is another way that you can help reduce your back pain
using natural techniques.
What Is Kinesiology?
Kinesiology is a branch of medicine that was developed by chiropractors, acupuncturists,
and medical doctors. It involves discovering
the source of back pain and correcting it.
It seems like a miracle to many who have suffered from back pain for so long that the answer is that easy, but not everything
has to be difficult to accomplish.
The difference between kinesiology and other forms of chiropractic or
Chinese medicine is that the muscles are tested pre-treatment and post-treatment.
This muscle test involves looking at the cause for the pain.
Many people look at the skeletal system but not the muscular system.
In fact, they are one integral system –the musculoskeletal system.
Muscles attach to bones. It is the muscles that raise and lower bones, not the other way around. So, looking for the problem in the muscle can be more advantageous.
Back to the muscle testing. A muscle is tested for weakness. A weak muscle is one that is not receiving proper signals from the brain through the nervous system.
This results in misfiring of neurons and the pain that you feel.
Some back pain can be due to stress, physical trauma or emotional trauma. Maybe the back pain wasn’t the first sign of pain but just the most persistent. A kinesiologist will check to see if the entire body is out of line before checking the back to see if there is a bigger problem going on.
With the muscle testing and adjustment, some people may feel relief instantly or
within a few days. The back is retested to see if the muscle is again getting proper messages from the brain.
Kinesiology is not just concerned with the back pain. It takes a holistic look at the body. You may feel relief but the pain could return if the body doesn’t stay in alignment. Changes in our mental health and environment affect how our body reacts.
Regular treatments can keep the body and mind in balance.
Kinesiology can teach us to keep our body in balance between treatments.
Sites of weakness can result in the need for dietary changes to strengthen and keep
the body in check. Healing your back pain is just the beginning.
