Is this movement bad for your back?
Can this damage your discs?
No.. ;) A lot of physiotherapists, doctors, orthopaedic surgeons, and the general public have to change their beliefs about the spine.
People with #degenerativediscdisease have been told that they can’t bend their back, lift heavy and do manual work.
There are a lot of examples of people who have gone back to doing the very things they’re being told they can’t do. :) There is a lot of fear about the structure of the #spine . Many have been told to be careful with their backs and have the fear to do harm.
We know that fear is a huge driver of abnormal #pain behaviour.
A shift in beliefs has to happen within the medical, physiotherapy profession and in the general public.
We can trust our back and shouldn't be feared. It is a robust, strong structure.
Often with disabling back pain, the motor systems are overactive, hypersensitive. The muscles are guarding the back too much.
That can be driven by habits of movements, habits of posture, fear, anxiety, stress, or just the presence of pain and you developed a protective guarding response.
In this video prof. Dr. Peter O’Sullivan explains more about this problem and tells about his Cognitive Functional Therapy approach, which shows great results for patients with #chroniclowbackpain .
This is a video from a list on the Trust me, I'm a "Physiotherapist" Youtube channel.
Check out the other video's of Peter O'Sullivan and the other lists, filled with great content! :) Share this post with all your collegues, doctors, and other health care professionals.. Everybody should see this! :) Great post from @trustmephysiotherapist
I have unintentionally slacked on posting daily to raise awareness for different #chronicpain illnesses. 🙈 September is #chronicpainawarenessmonth and I truly want to raise as much awareness as possible, not only for my illnesses but for the issues that others struggle with as well. .
Today I'm featuring Ankylosing spondylitis, or AS. AS is a form of arthritis that primarily affects the spine, although other joints can become involved. It causes inflammation of the spinal joints (vertebrae) that can lead to severe, chronic pain and discomfort. In more advanced cases this inflammation can lead to ankylosis -- new bone formation in the spine -- causing sections of the spine to fuse in a fixed, immobile position.
AS can also cause inflammation, pain, and stiffness in other areas of the body such as the shoulders, hips, ribs, heels, and small joints of the hands and feet. Sometimes the eyes can become involved (known as iritis or uveitis), and -- rarely -- the lungs and heart can be affected.
The hallmark feature of ankylosing spondylitis is the involvement of the sacroiliac (SI) joints during the progression of the disease. The SI joints are located at the base of the spine, where the spine joins the pelvis. Treatment includes medication, physical therapy, yoga, and in rare cases surgery.
For long, I have been hiding, and all the pain I hold within sends shivers down my spine. "Visceral" is a photographic series by photographer Paola Rojas H. and illustrator David Pérez (@davidfeliperez) that turns our bodies inside out. It reminds us that we are made of several intricate pieces and we are fragile.

Boa noite!!!! 🙏🏻
A Mesa flexora é um ótimo exercício para isquiotibiais , porém ela é benéfica quando utilizada sem sobrecarregar a coluna e a pelve.
No movimento de puxar a carga ocorre uma anteversão da pelve fazendo com que a COLUNA LOMBAR sofra e possa ocorrer algum trauma.
✅ Procure adequar a carga para que o movimento fique completo .
✅ Pressione a pelve contra o banco.
✅ Contraia glúteos e ative a musculatura do períneo.
✅ Se doer a lombar opte por outro exercício.

Honestly, I don’t know if he’s checking out the curve of spine in women, or is he simply checking out the women! 🙈 Either way, you should thank your lucky stars that you're not in that era anymore!
Schroth method coming this weekend! ❤️❤️❤️ #spine#scoliosis#therapy#physiotherapy#clinic#cliniclife
Here's a user-friendly picture of the #INNERUNIT for you, with the #diaphragm making the roof, the #TVA as walls all the way around our "cylinder," the #pelvicfloor as floor (naturally), & #multifidus lacing up the #spine .
I find this pared-down pic quite pleasing & clear for gaining a simple sense of what exactly our "#core " is comprised of. (REMEMBER: It's not just the #abs , & it's not *all* of the abs.)
We'll get more into multifidus soon. #Goodnight ! 🙆🏼
