In General by Adam Friedman

It amazes me the number of athletes who are “living” on a daily basis with low back pain (LBP). Lots of players are down-and-out right now. Others are a “straw-that-broke-the-camel’s-back” injury away from debilitation.

It’s a familiar episode that I can relate to because I’ve been through it. And many of my clients who walk into my office for the first time have too.

If you’re simply surviving, suffering with this unnecessary pain, read on.

I’m on a mission to help you correct this once and for all and for the long haul.

No more relying on symptomatic relief from anti-inflammatories, ice, and heat, etc. No more gritting it out to test your pain tolerance. It’s a guaranteed “Groundhog Day” for LBP.  

Now is the time to throw this horror film into rewind to discover the root cause. If you look way back, past the most recent incident, you’ll likely see the poor habits that have been shaping your LBP for years.

The Shape of BENDING

This is a true-life documentary that will play over-and-over until you take the projector (a.k.a. your body) off of its auto-loop.

The story will show you mindlessly BENDING from your spine as you do everyday things, such as:

  • Reading a book
  • Tying your shoes
  • Washing your face
  • Working at your computer
  • Picking up your weights in the gym

Over time, the repetitive stress of these everyday activities starts to speed up the degeneration of the spongy discs between your vertebrae. Some become brittle. Others bulge, gradually creeping to exert pressure on your spinal nerves.

Nerves twinge. Muscles lock up in your hip and back. Breathing becomes shallow. You feel trapped by your own body. The anxiety and fear alone are enough to squash your athletic spirit.

If you’re tired of this type of existence and ready to be done this movie, stay tuned for next week’s message when I reveal the solution in “The Shape of Hinging”.

In it, I’ll share the inspiring story of what happens when you Stop Bending…and Start Hinging.

I’ll give you a clue of the outcome. A happy ending in…Relief!
