If you were out in the snowmageddon blitz the other week, and are finding yourself with low back pain, there is some good news.
Research has shown the best predictor for pain relief from manipulation is when your pain is present for less than 16 days, and it doesn't travel anywhere below the knees!
Changing the pain-spasm pain cycle quickly before the muscles are in full spasm and the joints are locked seems to have a major impact on recovery!
Pain below the knees? Pain been going on for a longer period of time? No worries, manipulation can still help, it just might take a little longer than someone who meets the other 2 criteria!
What to do if you are uncomfortable with manipulation? Don't worry, I've got lots of tricks up my sleeves that don't involve the “popping” sound, that will still provide you with relief!
The important thing to remember is that the faster you look for help, the faster we can make the paid go away.
As for the snow... I don't think there's anything I can do to make it disappear any faster!!
