How many times have you reached for something and your low back locks up? When you lift or pick something or someone up your low back catches? Do you suffer from low back, leg, knee, or foot pain?
If you answered yes to any of these questions you are a perfect candidate for lower cross syndrome.
Lower cross syndrome is an issue that affects many people with lower body ailments such as low back pain, sciatic pain, knee pain, foot pain, or pain from the low back downward.
Lower cross stems from muscles that are tight causing the opposing muscles to be weak. The muscles that are tight are being overworked or overused causing them to become tight. These muscles become tight because the weak muscles are not working properly or efficiently because the opposing ones are tight not allowing the weak to work like they should.
For example; if the hip flexors and low back muscles are tight then that will affect the abdominal muscles and quadriceps muscles making them weak and vice versa.
So how do you fix this problem?
The quickest most efficient way to regain motion and get out of pain is the CORE of our practice the Chiropractic Adjustment. The adjustment will not only help with regaining motion back into the spine and musculature, but it will help the nervous system communicate better with the body to function better and more efficiently.
Once the adjustment has been performed then we must integrate the spinal rehab with the postural corrective exercises and release work. Pairing these great techniques with the adjustment compliment each other very well towards reaching no pain and staying consistently without pain. Incorporating postural exercises, stretches, release techniques such as foam rolling, and core strengthening will guide you to a healthier, more fulfilling, pain free life.
