Say Goodbye to Chronic Pain
Back pain is one of the most common medical problems and affects about 80% of people.
Back pain can originate from different joints, muscles, nerves and bones which affect your neck, upper back, lower back, or tail bone.
Causes of Low Back Pain
A “tilted” pelvis can unbalance your whole posture and put unnecessary strain on your back, causing muscles to spasm and vertebrae to go out of line.
A tight iliopsoas muscle, which joins your hip bones to your lower back, can go into spasm, causing pain deep in the lumbar area and making it difficult to stand up straight.
A misaligned tail bone (coccyx) causes back pain, shoulder pain and migraines. This is because your coccyx acts like a rudder on a boat which controls all your back muscles from a central point, also affecting your head and neck, causing unexplained headaches, shoulder problems and migraines.
Another set of joints, the sacroiliac joints, close to where people have dimples in the lower back, can cause low back pain if they are inflamed (due to arthritis for example) or if they are misaligned.
Developed in Australia, Bowen Therapy is one of the most effective treatments for back pain because it releases spasm almost immediately and realigns your entire muscle system so that your joints and spine return to healthier and pain free positions.
Bowen Therapy helps your muscles to release spasm and return naturally to their healthy position and hold that position with long term benefits. Healthier muscle structure ensures that your joints and spine remain in a healthier position, keeping you pain free for longer and improving your joint mobility.
Bowen Therapy stimulates nerves on your spine which affect all your organs, and also provides significant relief in hormonal issues, asthma, digestive issues, PMS, infertility, migraines, detoxification and other metabolic conditions.
