Feb 10, 2011 Lower back pain seems to be an epidemic in the winter months, whether it’s from shoveling the snow to everyone getting back into their workout routines for the Spring. With that said, most low back pain stems from chronic instability of the core muscle groups. By addressing the stability of the muscles as an early preventative measure for low back pain you’re not only able to save money, but also money and time back at work to make more money.
The following exercises can be done to prevent occurrence of low back pain by strengthening core muscles and strengthening the glutes. Consult your physician if you have injuries, or have troubles with performing any exercise before continuing.
The Kinesio Tex taping method is becoming very popular in the health and wellness industry. There are now multiple companies that try to take the idea of the tape and make a spin of it on their own. There are some companies that do this so there are no certifications, exams or seminars to take to use the product. They have "special" protocols that are the cookie cutter approach to an injury.
Well, not every patient is "cookie cutter". I have seen in my practice the same injuries day in and day out, but each patient has a unique case based on their lifestyle. With that said, if a practitioner is NOT certified in the taping method (you can ask to see their credentials, it's okay), I'd highly advise to go to someone who is.
Anyone can slap tape on an injury, but it takes someone who's taken the technique certification exams to thoroughly understand how to use it, and know how to apply the tape in special circumstances. If the tape is not applied correctly for the right situation, it can cause further injuries!
The Kinesiotaping Association has been working hard to get their logos updated and trademarked so the practitioners who've worked hard to learn the technique can finally stand out from the imposters who are trying to advertise services they have no expertise in.
Repetitive motion, overtraining, constant tension, and pressure often result in inflammation and swelling of the soft tissue elements of the body (i.e. muscles, tendons, fascia, nerves, and ligaments). The body then responds by laying down scar tissue in an attempt to stabilize the area. Scar tissue can reduce range of motion, reduce circulation, inhibit nerve function, and result in increased production of scar tissue.
ART can be used to decrease the scar tissue formation, increase strength, increase blood flow, and increase range of motion by specific movements to each soft tissue structure of the area affected.
Patients can see results in just one treatment, however, most injuries are a result of injury over time, and need a few sessions to properly treat the area. Most patients are recommended with 3-5 treatments for acute injuries, and 5-8 treatments for chronic injuries.
