Profile Of A Typical Candidate For Therapy
Low back pain is one of the most common reasons that people come for therapy, as it can truly be debilitating and effect every movement that you make. I remember one of my patients telling me that she had to hold her breath and pull in her stomach for extra support every time she bent down or stooped forward, for fear of further injuring her back. She felt like an old lady at the young age of 55.
Can low back pain really be resolved? The answer is a resounding YES. I’d like to share with you a four year study I completed at the Bellevue Foot and Ankle Center in Bellevue, Washington (USA), on 208 people who suffered with chronic low back pain.
Prior to this study, these patients had been treated with various therapies including physical therapy, osteopathic and/or chiropractic manipulation, anti-inflammatory medications and in some cases, surgery. All of these patients were to some degree disappointed with the therapies they had received and were committed to permanently eliminating their low back pain.
I ran an initial evaluation, testing and analysis on each patient and found that they all had foot twist (coming from one of the two abnormal foot structures I discovered) and bad posture. A therapy (which later evolved into what is now known as Rothbart Proprioceptive Therapy) was then initiated to permanently improve their posture.
Of the 208 patients who started this therapy, 203 completed it. One year later, the 203 patients filled out a questionnaire rating the effectiveness of their therapy by how they now felt. The results were:
- 170 patients reported that their chronic low back pain lessened 50% or more
- 24 reported that their low back pain lessened 10 to 40%
- 6 reported no change in their low back pain
- 3 reported an increase in their low back pain
What I noted as a result of this study
- Of the 170 patients who reported a decrease in their level of low back pain of 50% or greater, all had a dramatic improvement in their posture.
- Of the 24 patients who reported a decrease in their level of low back pain of 10 – 40%, all had a slight improvement in their posture.
- Of the 6 patients who reported no lessening in their level of low back pain, no improvement in their posture was noted.
- Of the 3 patients who reported an increase in their level of low back pain, all three demonstrated deterioration in their posture.
I observed a direct correlation between bad posture and chronic low back pain. When the therapy improved the posture, the chronic low back pain diminished. However, when the posture did not improve or deteriorated, the low back pain either remained the same or increased.
This study suggested that a viable, effective way to eliminate or dramatically reduce chronic low back pain is by permanently improving posture.
Using my therapy to eliminate chronic low back pain
Since this study, I have worked with many, many patients who have one of the inherited foot structures that cause bad posture and chronic low back pain. I have found that by correcting their posture using Rothbart Proprioceptive Therapy, their low back pain is greatly reduced or completely eliminated.
I think that it gives me as much joy as it does my patients to see that they can once again move freely and do the things that they enjoy in life!
