Are Your Emotions Causing Your Back Pain

Patients come into my office often complaining of neck and/or back pain, and many are certain there is some structural cause.  When patients take my structural, digestive, and emotional assessments, they frequently find there is no structural cause, but rather, the pain is caused by stress.   Stress causes muscles to tighten, which can cause serious back and neck pain and also can lead to poor posture.

“My back hurts” is a regular complaint that I hear from patients, and it sounds simple.  Even before I attempt to diagnose the cause of the pain as structural, digestive, or emotional, it’s crucial that I understand how long you’ve been suffering and what you have done to try to help yourself.  And if you haven’t done anything, I need to know why.

5 Stretches to Increase Flexibility and Relieve Back Pain

Previously, I explained how a Backbridge could help you relieve pain caused not only by forward hunching, but also aging, exercise (like sit-ups), and daily life stressors.  You may see your chiropractor or physical therapist a few times a month.  For a fraction of the time and cost of a chiropractor or physical therapist visit, you can use the Backbridge to get back pain relief at home, increase flexibility, and sustain back health.  I believe it is important to complement treatment from medical practitioners with regular and routine stretching to help reduce soreness and tightness, and increase flexibility.

Is Your Diet Causing Your Back Pain?

Jan 28, 2020 7:00:00 AM / by Dr. Todd Sinett posted in Causes of Back Pain, Assessments, Exercise and Tips, Digestive & Nutrition

I have learned that I have to listen to patients’ structural, emotional, and digestive issues to get to the truth of back pain.  While there are thousands of studies on how nutrition impacts muscular function, very few health professionals have connected the dots from digestive function and nutrition back to back pain.  In one study published by the Asian Spine Journal in 2014, 31% of women and 24.6% of men who were suffering from back pain also suffered from gastrointestinal complaints such as abdominal pain or food intolerance.

Structural Causes of Back Pain

Jan 7, 2020 12:24:01 PM / by Dr. Todd Sinett posted in Causes of Back Pain, Assessments, Symptoms

After working with back patients for about 20 years, I have discovered why many patients don’t achieve back pain relief or perfect posture.  To fix back pain and correct your posture, I have to focus on a patient’s structural, emotional, and digestive issues to get to the truth.  Unfortunately, most doctors don’t pay attention to what the rest of the body is telling them about a patient's pain. A single-approach structural treatment plan may apply if a patient is a certain type of back pain sufferer, but may not work if an individual is a different type of back pain sufferer.  In today’s post, we will focus on potential structural issues that are causing your back pain and poor posture.
