Uncovering the TRUE Root Cause of Back Pain & Sciatica
Dec. 13, 2019
If you’ve read some of my other blog posts about back pain and sciatica, you might already be familiar with what I call the “Top 3 Causes” of back pain and sciatica…
The top 3 include:
1. Bulging or herniated discs
2. Degenerative/Arthritic changes (including degenerative joint disease, aka DJD, degenerative disc disease, aka DDD, and stenosis)
3. SIJ dysfunction (SIJ = Sacro-iliac joint)
For full details on those top 3 causes, as well as how to determine which one is causing your back pain and/or sciatica, just follow this link: https://www.gordonphysicaltherapy.com/the-3-causes-of-low-back-pain-sciatica-plus-3-self-test-videos/
Today’s video is a bit different…
Sometimes, figuring out which of those 3 things is causing your issue isn’t enough information.
Uncover the TRUE Root Cause of Back Pain & Sciatica
In other words, even though you’ve figured out your back pain and sciatica are coming from a bulging disc (just as an example), and you’re treating the bulging disc appropriately with hands-on treatment and the correct exercises/stretches, there’s still no guarantee that you’ll experienc lasting pain relief and a return to full activity.
That’s because you may have overlooked the “true root cause”.
In other words, you haven’t figured out WHY your disc is bulging or herniated (in this example).
It could be a number of things that are contributing to the disc irritation…
And if you can figure this out, your chances of a successful recovery are MUCH higher.
Check out the video below to learn more about how to uncover the TRUE Root Cause of your back pain and sciatica.
I hope this helps you or a loved one!
