SOS: Low Back Pain

SOS: LOW BACK PAIN

We have created this Low Back Pain (LBP) course to provide participants with accurate information and a clinically effective way to move through an episode of acute LBP. Acute LBP can be frightening. This fear and the severity of pain can be exacerbated by misinformation. Even though LBP causes more global disability than any other condition it is shrouded in misconceptions.

 

We have observed a palpable relief in students and patients when they better understand the nature of acute LBP and how to approach it.  In acute low back pain, that has not been caused by trauma, it is rare that something has ‘slipped’ or is ’out’.

 

Acute low back pain typically revolves around disruption to the tensional relationships of the body, coupled with some form of tissue micro-trauma and inflammation. Inflammation and pain alter muscle function, can trigger muscle spasm and perturb posture, movement and breathing patterns. These adaptive changes can linger long after acute LBP has resolved and potentially seed chronic LBP.

 

LBP is a highly individualised and subjective experience. For this reason, no single intervention will be effective for all instances of acute LBP – anyone offering a universal cure is peddling snake oil.

 

This MESHWORK SOS course incorporates practices and concepts that are clinically effective and address many of the common characteristics of acute LBP.

 

This course will help you settle the effects of acute LBP, eliminate factors that fuel acute LBP and introduce supportive movement. Additionally, this process can attune you to adaptive changes and enable you to disrupt the development of chronic LBP.
