According to recent statistics, 30% of the U.S. adult population suffers from lower back problems. This DVD is loaded with information that can directly improve your abilities to help clients suffering from lower back pain. Generally, lower back disorders are classified as lumbalgia, lumbago, radiculopathy (radiating pain to the lower extremities). On this DVD Boris offers a detailed explanation for causes that lead to these lower back disorders. For example, in most cases of lumbalgia, the origin of the pain is so-called mechanical or myofascial pain, which if not addressed timely can become the main factor for the development of intervertebral disc herniation.
Above mentioned pathologies are very difficult to treat by any means other than massage therapy. Therefore, Boris teaches not only how to eliminate myofascial pain but also how to prevent intervertebral disc herniation.
Nowadays it is commonplace for people with cases of sciatica neuralgia to be referred for spinal surgery when actually the main cause of sciatica neuralgia is over-tensed piriformis muscles (piriformis muscle syndrome). On this DVD Boris explains in detail and demonstrates the step by step protocol for various lower back disorders including sciatica. This protocol was developed by Vladimir Cherneh MD, Ph.D., in 1976 and since then, has proven to be most safe and effective.
Also on this DVD, Boris demonstrates various massage therapy techniques, including superficial fascia release, deep fascia release techniques, trigger point therapy, and skin mobilization, Boris thoroughly explains and demonstrates post-isometric relaxation technique that plays a crucial role in treating lower back disorders.
An exercise program is a very important rehabilitative effort that every therapist should offer to his or her clients. With the help of a model, Boris presents a safe, gentle and effective exercise program for the rehabilitation of lower back disorders.
