If you have back pain you will want to know what the answer to your problem is. Many people will tell you what they believe is the right way to get to the answer
“I had back pain, you need to sleep on a hard board and that will get rid of it, that’s what got rid of mine”
We see it in adverts for the latest gadgets or gizmo that claim they can cure back pain.
“ Buy this machine and rid yourself of back pain”
I hate to be the one to break it to you but there is NO magic bullet cure or one size fits all for back pain.
There are many answers and many ways to get to that answer.
5 + 4 = 9.
But so does
3 + 3 + 3
And so does 11 – 2
(you get the idea)
All of these sums will get you to the same answer and it is the same with back pain.
Some people will need to do strengthening exercises, some need to do mobility. And also your answer might be different!! The goals of a 20 yr old female elite athlete might be to play hockey at a high intensity which is different to that of a 75 yr old male who wants to be able to walk around town and cut his own grass.
Both are equally as important to each person and they deserve more than a generic approach to get them to their goals.
