What causes Back Pain?
Back pain can arise from many causes. It can range
from a dull, annoying ache to absolute agony.
Many cases of back pain are caused by stresses on
the muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia, joints and nerves.
Sedentary jobs, poor posture, obesity, lack of exercise,
trauma or repetitive motion
can all cause back pain.
|How can ART resolve
Active Release Technique has revealed that Back Pain is
more often caused by peripheral nerve entrapments rather than by nerve
route entrapments at the Foramen and Disc.
Significant improvement or resolution in Sciatica
cases, within only two or three patient visits, is not uncommon when ART
is used to free up the peripheral entrapment sites. In fact, we have seen
complete resolution of all symptoms in many of our previous patients that
had been diagnosed with disc problems.
Some of the common sites for peripheral entrapment of the Sciatic nerve
can be found:
- Between the hamstrings.
- Attached to the Adductor Magnus and hamstrings muscles.
- Attached to the Superior Gammelus muscle as the Sciatic nerve passes
over this muscle.
- Attached to the Piriformis muscle as the Sciatic Nerve passes under
or through the Piriformis muscle.
Active Release Technique® (ART®) has been shown
to be very effective in the treatment of Sciatica. Rather than just addressing
just one area, ART® restores unimpeded motion and function to all
