Here’s the missing diagnosis that most doctors miss. If they knew how to treat patients they would lose money just knowing this technique. I see so many patients that come to see me after they see so many of this doctor and so many of that physio and they still have no relief after months of care. Sometimes I wished I didn’t know this technique because of how effective it is, but when patients say they are at least 70% better it’s worth it.
When diagnosing what kind of low back pain patients have, I commonly find this problem with many patients. Symptoms of this issue includes achy low back that is non-specific in location. Many times there is referred pain to the hips and down the buttock. History will show that the patient has had a serious fall on their buttock, sometimes as long as 20-30 years. On presentation of the patient, you will find that their posture shows a weak core and anterior translated hips with a hyperlordotic lumbar spine.
As an applied kinesiologist, I can confirm these symptoms to actual dysfunction of their core muscles. One will find correlating weaknesses of the abdominal oblique muscle and quadratus lumborum on opposing sides. When weakness is found, an added extension test of the low back that produces pain confirms suspicion of this diagnosis – facet syndrome.
Facet syndrome is a complication of what is essentially facet imbrication. The facet joint is located in between each vertebrae to prevent excessive motion in twisting and bending. Many medical doctors use facet injections to relieve pain in this joint, but there is a natural and more lasting approach.
Only a certified trained applied kinesiologist knows the protocols to treat this problem. It only takes 5 minutes to do, but the pain you faced for so many years and paid so much money for will be relieved almost immediately.
