We have all heard that 80% of Americans are going to experience some form of low back pain in their life. What many people don’t know is that in acute cases of low back pain, 90% plus of the time the issues are resolved with minimal interventions. The trouble can really begin when we are discussing chronic low back pain (pain that persists for 12 weeks or more). There are estimates that 23% of the world’s population actually experiences chronic low back pain. If that number doesn’t sound very large, that is almost 2 billion people worldwide!!!!
Chronic pain of any sort is a complex interaction of not just muscle or joint, but also connective tissue, brain regulation, and lifestyle. That is why what is known as the bio psychosocial model has become more and more a talking point in dealing with all sorts of chronic pain. It has been estimated that up to 80% of people with chronic pain also suffer from depression, this demonstrates that the both the impact and issues surrounding any sort of chronic pain go beyond just the physical. What can exercise do to help such complex issues.
More and more research is showing the power of mind-body practices in helping chronic low back pain issues. Since we know the mind and the body are not two different distinct entities, rather closely tied to one another, we have to address both in helping complex issues such as chronic low back pain. That is what our Myofascial Integrated Movement (MIM) program was designed to help fitness enthusiast and coach alike in learning to implement.
We created this unique 4-week program to help teach how the importance, coaching, proper exercise progression, and program design of our powerful MIM program as it relates to chronic low back pain. You will get to delve into the science of our MIM program that focuses upon the role of our nervous system, connective tissue, fascial lines, and stability in improving our mobility, movement skills, improving sleep, building better lifestyle habits, and reducing chronic low back pain.
Each week we will meet to cover science, practice and implementation of these strategies in an easy to access manner. Even if you are unable to attend each every session (where you get to interact with us and other coaches to ask your questions and build confidence in teaching our MIM system) each lesson will be recorded and shared with you to keep and review at your leisure. This allows you to go back and practice on your own as well as prepare questions for the following lesson.
This program promises to help you better understand the multi-faceted issues of chronic low back pain as well as how to bring the most current science to life combined with lessons that mind-body systems have taught us for centuries in build overall health and well-being. Best of all, you don’t have to be in pain or work with people in pain to gain the many benefits this master class has to offer. You will find the ability to deal with stress, recover from training, and perform your best with these strategies as well. We hope you will join us for this special event.
