Course Description

This course will take the student from the basics of the anatomy of low-back pain, what causes low back pain and why conventional treatments often don't work. The course will then illustrate a series of techniques and strategies that allow a person to re-balance, re-support, re-strengthen and re-align the spinal, lumbar and sacral regions, in order to achieve pain-free living. The course introduces a revolutionary technique called bio-mechanical torsion - developed by osteopaths for re-balancing and re-aligning the lumbar and sacral regions. It has been clinically used for decades by osteopaths. For the first time, these techniques have been adapted for personal use with a self-guided process to help achieve and maintain pain-free living.

The course doesn't stop there. Strategies on posture, flexibility, strengthening and more are introduced to facilitate a healthy lumbar and sacral region. Facilities and equipment including swimming pools, pilates balls, inversion chairs, saunas, tai chi, nutrition, meditation, hydration and various back stretching devices are also introduced and explained.

What are the requirements?

  • English. Other than that, there are no requirements. Most anyone can understand this course and it is illustrated with examples throughout.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Understand what really causes most low back pain
  • Understand why many conventional low back pain treatments don't work
  • Know the anatomy of low back pain
  • Achieve flexibility within the lumbar and sacral regions
  • Achieve strength among the support regions to take pressure off the lumbar region

Curriculum

Section 1: Introduction to low back pain
06:24

This video will explain the basic elements of low-back pain. This includes:

- some basic understandings of low back pain

- problems with conventional theories of low back pain

- some conventional treatments of low back pain

- problems with conventional treatments

- my background and why I made this course

- the basis for this course - background/philosophy

- the strategies used in this course

- how to use the recommendations used in this course

Section 2: Some Basic Anatomy
11:13

This lecture will give the student a clear understanding of the basic anatomy of the spine and lumbar region and the typical causes for low back pain.

Section 3: Flexibility in the Lumbar Region
13:04

This video will show the student how to become more flexible in the lumbar region. These exercises and stretches will loosen and create flexibility within muscles, ligaments and tendons of the lumbar region. This will help re-align the spine, lumbar, sacrum and pelvic regions as they loosens, lengthens and stretches that which supports and aligns the spine and sacral area.

Recommended:

1) Watch the video once and listen

2) Watch a second time while participating in the exercises

3) Note those exercises that create greater flexibility the most

Section 4: Strengthening the Lumbar Region
11:58

This video illustrates a variety of exercises that strengthen the muscles and regions that support and balance the lumbar region. By strengthening these supporting muscles, we provide balance and support to the entire region. This reduces the pressure on the lower spine and increases the range of motion. This is a full-body strengthening routine that is easy and fun and can be done virtually anywhere.

Recommended:

1) Watch the video once and listen

2) Watch a second time while participating in the exercises

3) Note those exercises that create greater flexibility the most

Section 5: Posture Strategies to Relieve Back Pain
13:44

This video will first show how and why poor postures can create problems or exacerbate low back pain.

The video will then illustrate practical ways to improve postures for all activities. These include:

- standing postures

- sitting postures in chairs, benches and workstations

- walking postures

- working postures

- how to bend and pick things up

- running postures

Recommended:

1) Watch the video once - watch and listen

2) Watch a second time while participating in the exercises

3) Note those exercises that create greater flexibility the most

Section 6: Biomechanical Therapy - Self-Directed Manual Therapeutics
11:26

This video illustrates a series of techniques that were developed by osteopathic physicians in order to re-balance and align the spine, lumbar and sacrum region. These techniques have been, for the first time, adapted for use in a self-directed fashion.

Each of the exercises are explained and illustrated. The exercises can be done in most environments. A carpeted floor, a grass lawn, firm bed, pilates mat or massage table may be used for many of the floor exercises.

Recommended:

1) Watch the video once and listen

2) Watch a second time while participating in the exercises

3) Note those exercises that create greater flexibility the most

ATTACHMENT TO PERUSE: I have attached a document from the Virginia Osteopathic Medical Association called "Osteopathic Evaluation and Treatment of Sacroiliac Joint Problems." This document is quite complex. It is used as a reference for Osteopathic physicians. I am not expecting the student to read all of this or understand the science. It is attached to offer a purview of the background and foundation of the science regarding the biomechanical exercises that are being taught in this course. Please also note that this course is not attempting to treat or diagnose any particular back condition. The exercises are intended to help strengthen and rebalance the lumbar and sacral regions in order to establish a stronger, more flexible and balanced back. (For diagnosis and treatment of any medical condition, please see your physician. For lumbar or sacrum conditions, a biomechanically-trained osteopath is recommended.)

Section 7: Devices, Facilities, Aids and Equipment for Low Back Pain
15:26
