Holistic Pain Management for The Back

Holistic Back Treatment

Just too broad a category to fully address in one area.  Generally, “tightness” is an issue of tension.  Pain is generally is an involuntary contraction, i.e., spasm.

Holistically Addressing Back Spasms & Pain

An acute spasm is best treated with rest, anti-inflammatory.  Tightness and tension is usually a reflection of old mild strains and mild injury.  You stretch and stretch and the next day it is back again.

Cause & Effect of  Holistic Remedies vs. Surgical

When there is structural compromise, such as bulging disc, herniated disc, spondylolisthesis, spondylolysis, your orthopedic doctor may recommend surgery if physical therapy fails.  Get 3-5 second opinions before you even consider it.  I find that the traumatic injury that led to spasms above and below the level of the structural compromise is still in place after PT and after surgery.  Even if you wake up with your numbness and tingling resolved, the traumatic force of your injuries are still in play.  I have seen , even if surgery was “successful,” between 1-7 years later the symptoms return.

 This is Leonard.  He has suffered for 50 years with back pain.  He distinctly remembers the motion he did to wrench it out (he was sitting and reached towards his right).  Note how he is pulled forward and cannot straighten his left leg.
