Low back pain is a common disorder, affecting around one-third of the UK adult population each year. It is mostly looked at as a structural only problem and treated with bones and muscles manipulation techniques.
What is the root cause of back pain?
Systematic Kinesiology looks at lower back pain in a holistic way, checking for the structural, nutritional, emotional and energetic aspects that are causing the symptom. On this premises, lower back pain is often found to be caused by intestinal imbalances. Less often however still unexpected, it is at times caused by bladder or uterine prolapse.
No wonder many people are unable to get lower back pain fixed on the long term with manipulation of muscles or spine and energetic only techniques.
How is back pain linked to the intestines?
When the digestive tract is stressed things generally start to tense and tighten. This can be caused by mental and emotional stress and/or bad diet and nutrient deficiencies. The ligaments and connective tissue which hold the bowel in place and are connected to other organs like the pelvic wall start to tighten and cause pain. These particular ligaments and connective tissue have a significant effect on the stability of the pelvis and lower lumbar area.
In Systematic Kinesiology we address intestinal imbalances looking for the related muscles weakness and for ICV (Ileocecal Valve) involvement. The Ileocecal valve is on the bottom right quadrant of the abdomen and it separates the small from the large intestine. It is a neurologically controlled valve and when malfunctioning it causes toxicity primarily in the intestines, with the toxins leaking out and causing inflammation in the rest of the body if not treated. The ICV also works together with the Valves of Houston, located in the bottom left quadrant of the abdomen. If one is malfunctioning, the other one is affected too. Both valves are very stress and emotionally sensitive.
In a similar way bladder or uterine prolapse can cause discomfort or a pulling sensation in the lower back and/or lower abdomen area. Sometimes clients suffer with the symptoms and are unaware of the prolapse. With Systematic Kinesiology testing we can check to find where the root cause of the symptoms are.
