It’s important to remember that as frustrating as it can be, pain is just a warning sign from your body telling you that something is not right. For you the ‘thing’ which is not right might be a disc bulge or herniation, a strained muscle or ligament, degeneration of the spine or muscle spasms.

What’s vital is that you find out what the root cause of the condition is.

Age and normal wear and tear are very rarely the root cause of your pain, as there will be people who are older than you and don’t have low back pain. So what could be the root cause? Well, your body has a certain posture and that posture is held together by muscles. Nowadays, we spend so much time sitting down either as adults or when we were children at school, that our muscles can go out of balance. When this happens our posture moves out of position which can create excess wear and tear through the body. If your spine has lost it’s natural curvature this can eventually result in a condition within the lower back and you experience pain.

Many therapies only bring you temporary pain relief because they only target the symptoms or condition you have. Posture Correction Therapy on the other hand, aims to focus on the underlying root cause, which very often is incorrect posture. By using gentle but targeted posture correction exercises you can over time improve your posture and thus get your body working the way it was designed to. The aim is to not only end your current pain, but also to reduce your risk of future pain and injuries.

    My issue mainly is my sacroiliac joints become inflamed whenever I have to do any sort of activity like gardening or housework. Is there specific exercises for this. Love your approach ?

    • Ameet Bhakta

      Hi Susan – there aren’t any specific exercises for sacroiliac joint (SIJ) issues as Posture Correction Therapy aims to address the posture of your entire body as your entire body will be contributing to your problem. Keep up with the low back pain exercises and if you find you still have the problem it means you need more targeted help for you specific posture imbalances – take care.
