The root cause of back pain

We can often attribute lower back pain to how we slept, over exertion or even ageing. This seems logical, but we may wonder why our symptoms are inconsistent and unpredictable. Often there is a deeper reason.

Our lower back is there to give us core support, to carry us and bear our weight. When we ask ‘why’ our lower back hurts, the additional load that we often overlook is the stress or emotions we carry in our body.

Client story

My client had been struggling with a lower back pain for years. The symptoms would come and go. The postural muscles in her lower back felt incredibly tight when massaged. She was aware that the pain and tightness radiated into her hip and were could relate to her pelvic twist and reduced sensation through her left leg.

We found and addressed the root cause. Her lower back had been quietly storing up stress, carrying the recent additional load of working and motherhood. We joined the dots that locked the beliefs, memory, emotions and sensations together and locked her lower back muscles into a holding tension – and together we transformed it so that she could finally let go.

My client fed back that the next day her back pain was gone – and that she feels more strength and stability through her left leg too.

Why we experience lower back pain

If you struggle with recurring lower back pain, consider these questions:

  • Have you recently felt under immense pressure?
  • Have you wondered whether you’ll be able to cope?
  • Do you feel overwhelmed by how much there is to do?
  • Do you feel responsible for having to do it all yourself – and support others?

If these questions resonate, your back could be quietly storing up this additional stress-load for you. Lower back pain isn’t inevitable as we age. By addressing the root cause your back can fully self-heal.

The stress response is everything

The body is incredibly intelligent and always has our best interests at heart. When we experience the stresses and strains that life brings, if intense, our body will adapt to try to help us cope. Every tissue in the body has a unique biological function, geared towards aiding our survival. If we perceive a threat, big or small, our body will do its utmost to help us cope.

A Root Cause Health Session moves chronic symptoms from continual cycles of stress and repair to full regeneration and recovery. I have seen incredible transformations with clients and I am amazed by the body’s ability to both protect us and auto regulate.
