Over the past 6 months the team at Superior has been putting on workshops monthly educating the community about lower back pain. We usually cover the top 3 types of lower back pain, the top 3 causes of lower back pain and then we talk about what research indicates is the best type of treatments. But the real question is why are we doing these workshops. The answer is very simple. We believe that the current way lower back pain is being treated is simply not improving and might be getting worse. For example lower back fusions are on the rise I believe 150% over the past 10 years yet the statistics of success are still the same at 50%. That basically means if you have back pain and you have been recommended surgery you mine as well flip a coin to determine how you will do. This has been going on way to long. The reality is that lower back pain is only a symptom of a larger problem. Its like an ice berg where you only see 10% on the surface and 90% is below the surface. Lower Back Pain is the same thing. As a physical therapist I have unique perspective but I also have a unique perspective as a lower back pain patient in the past who has had every treatment available.
So the bottom line is we believe we have a solution for people that nobody else offers. That solution is the understanding that the entire body effects the lower back and the entire body first must be evaluated and treated before drastic things like surgery happen.
