Drugless Back Pain Treatments

Drugless Back Pain Treatments

Back pain is one of the most frequent complaints; approximately 90 % of adults experience back pain at some point in their lives. In rare cases back pain can be caused by cancer, osteoarthritis, and osteoporosis or a herniated disc in the spinal column. However, most cases of back pain are caused by functional and postural imbalances due to the involvement of muscles, fascia and ligaments, generally referred to as soft tissues. Prolonged sitting at the desk and computer, lifting heavy objects without proper technique, or repetitive movements can all contribute to back stiffness and eventually pain.

Massage Therapy combined with Acupuncture and Exercise Programs can reduce the level and frequency of back pain.

Here is a brief description of what to expect during your treatment:

The treatment usually starts with a moist heat application, followed with gentle stretching (myofascial release) of the back and leg muscles, and massage. The session may also include acupuncture, which involves the insertion of small sterile needles along the spine, as well as in the buttock and leg muscles. To achieve stronger stimulation, the needles are left for 15 to 20 minutes.

Acupuncture and massage are great tools in managing back pain by stimulating blood circulation, releasing muscle spasms and increasing levels of natural pain killers.

In order to provide extended soft tissue manipulation and improve blood and lymph circulation, a special tape (Kinesiotape) is applied to the back muscles. This tape provides support without restricting the body’s movement and is effective for 4-5 days.

At the end of the treatment a program of stretching and strengthening exercises, tailored to the patient’s needs, is given as home care.

Cranial Sacral Therapy

Last weekend Kathleen took a Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST) Course. During the course she learned the basics of CST, and can now incorporate them with Massage Therapy to help improve overall health.

History of CST: At the start of the 1900’s, an osteopathy student, William Sutherland, who was taught that our cranial bones were fused together and did not move, had discovered, during examining a set of cranial bones, that the cranial bones were easily separated and the sutures (joints) looked like the gills of a fish. So Dr. Sutherland started experimenting with his own skull to try and prove that what he was taught was right. During his experiments he discovered that the cranial bones do in fact move, and therefore can be manipulated. While assisting a neurosurgeon in the removal of a plaque on the spinal cord membrane of a patient, Dr. John Upledger noticed a pulsating that was slower than cardiac pulse and respiratory pulse, and is known now as craniosacral rhythm. Dr. Upledger then further developed Dr. Sutherland’s observations and incorporated them into his treatments, he now calls Craniosacral Therapy.

What is CST: Cranial Sacral Therapy is a gentle, manual therapy that helps release deep tension throughout the body that causes pain and dysfunction in turn improving whole body health. By using a very light touch (no greater than the weight of a nickel) Practitioners can release restrictions in the soft tissues surrounding the central nervous system.

What to except during a CST treatment: The therapist places the hands lightly on the body and tunes into the Cranial Sacral system to release restrictions. The client may feel a sense of relaxation or light headedness, or may feel nothing at all.

So drop by the clinic and try some Cranial Sacral Therapy with Kathleen.
