Back pain is a common and often debilitating condition, with approximately one in six Australians suffering back pain each year. It comes as no surprise then, that there are an increasing number of products promising fast relief for back pain. The problem with trying to get rid of back pain quickly, or even instantly, is that these are generally temporary options that don’t address the underlying issues.
To effectively heal back pain so you can walk, sit, lay down, sleep and move freely without pain, requires us to first look at why we have back pain in the first place.
What Causes Back Pain?
Back pain is one of the leading causes of absenteeism from the workplace, so it literally pays to get to the root of the problem.
Back pain is often caused by insufficient strength in the spine due to impaired core strength, excess weight, poor posture, sitting for long periods of time, lack of physical activity, poor mobility, hereditary conditions or diseases, and injury or inflammation due to a number of reasons including diet and stressors.
The good news is that we can easily rebuild the strength and support of our spine without resorting to medications which often only mask our symptoms.
How To Achieve Long Term Relief From Back Pain?
Medications and some treatments can provide temporary relief from back pain, whilst surgery is a drastic option. However a prescribed treatment program incorporating exercise, stretching and correct body mechanics, will help provide long term relief from pain, whilst quickly improving your quality of life.
This is the approach we take at The Optimum Movement Centre.
At OMC we incorporate MedX equipment along with functional exercises and specialised trainers to help our members build spinal strength, increase power, mobility, flexibility, agility, endurance, and reduce pain
How Do MedX Machines Help Back Pain?
MedX equipment has been scientifically designed and uses proven technology that incorporates millions of dollars of medically based, independent and university based research. This equipment is designed to increase strength, endurance and range of motion.
There are 75 Clinically Published Research Medical journal articles that confirm that MedX's proprietary technology can materially decrease chronic spine-related pain issues, restore spinal function, reduce or eliminate the need for ongoing care, and improve patients’ quality of life.
MedX equipment has been known to help thousands of people reduce or eliminate their back pain whilst increasing function and quality of life. Two MedX machines in particular - the Core Torso Rotation Machine and the Lumbar Strength Machine - are specifically designed to strengthen the back, and we are very lucky at OMC to have both.
The OMC Difference
At OMC our programs incorporate MedX equipment along with functional exercises to build strength, increase power, mobility, flexibility, agility, endurance, reduce pain and prevent further injury. Functional exercises follow the body’s natural movement and are weaved into your unique program to help restore your body’s movements to sustain you throughout your day, whilst improving your health and physicality.
We would love the opportunity to meet you and see how we can be of service to you to help you get relief from pain and achieve your goals to live a more fulfilled lifestyle.
