How is your spine (and back) going to fare when it’s sitting on a twisted, imbalanced pelvis?
How about your neck on top of that?
Then there are the shoulders now having to move on a twisted, pulled forward base. They run into impingement problems as the ribs get crammed against the collarbone, trapping the nerves that run through the narrowed space.
And of course, underlying every misaligned and imbalanced pelvis is a pair of stiffened and twisted ankles. They go together every time. It’s true you need to balance the pelvis, but if the feet stay troubled they’ll throw the gait off again. And the combination of the two leads to knee problems. Hips suffer here too.
Organs, nerves, blood vessels… These are all subject to twisting, pulling, hardening, and squeezing as they sit within the various other distorted structures.
Decades of anatomy pictures (with the connective tissues cut away) – and doctors focused narrowly on symptoms – have caused everyone to miss the forest for the trees!
None of these problems show up on standardized imaging and tests. X-rays, MRIs, CAT scans, blood work, and so on… None of them can detect the underlying issue. They’re looking with the wrong focus.
Is this sounding a little nuts?
Okay, tell me then, where does your “front” end and your “back” begin?
Go ahead… I’ll wait...
Did you have to draw a line? An imaginary line?
It’s like thinking the weather and the landscape is different and unrelated just because you crossed from Utah into Arizona. My point? The boundary is made up. And it’s the same in the body.
Yes, there are organs, and bundles of muscle fibers, and so on… But all of those are woven through with a completely continuous, ever-present web of tissue fibers that shapes, separates, and supports ...everything. From the large to inside-the-cell small.
Until you recognize and deal with problems that happen on this level, the myofascial connective tissue level, you’re just treating the hot spots. You’ll spend years merely chasing symptoms around, doing your best to compensate and cope.
Yes, your back hurts. We get that. But have you considered what else might be involved in your back pain?
Here at Release Works, we’ve helped many people out of back pain. Old or young, post-surgery or looking to avoid it, whether it’s due to injury, breakdown, or scoliosis, the main thing all these people have in common is that nothing else worked and they’d been suffering for years.
