Symptom vs. Problem
April 2, 2020 by Travis Perret
Did you know that your chronic pain is not the problem? Pain is a symptom of a problem. That back pain you’ve had all these years is not the problem.
Sure you have a herniated disc, but what caused the herniation?
That knee injury you’ve lived with for all these years is not the problem. It is a symptom shouting out to be heard. Correct that hip alignment and it will make that knee feel better.
That is why no other therapies seem to work. They are working on the symptom, not the problem.
Here at Exercise Therapy of Kansas City we fix problems that create chronic pain. Call us for an appointment and we will fix your problems (just your physical ones!).
Do you have back pain or know some one who does? Try these three exercise and then give us a call to set up an appointment. After a posture and gait evaluation, we can give you an exercise routine that will be specific for your muscular imbalances and joint alignment. You and your body are unique and deserve a therapy routine that is unique to your issues.
Lie on your back with your knees at 90 degrees and arms at 45 degrees. Relax your stomach and legs. Lay like this for 5 minutes.
Put hands together as in picture. Then move your hands, while clasped together, to the floor above your head. Keep your elbows straight. Do this 20 times.
Place a pillow between your knees. Make sure it is firm enough to create resistance. Then squeeze your knees together but keep your belly relaxed. Be sure the block is thick enough to keep your knee at hip width when squeezing. Do 40 times.
Why put this off another day? You no longer have to be in pain. You have the choice.
