We see clients all the time who have been for MRI scans and are told they have a disc bulge, disc degeneration or joint degeneration and that is the cause of their pain.

However, research shows that these findings are also apparent in pain free populations meaning they are not markers of chronic pain and in fact just a normal sign of life and ageing.

Pain comes from overactivity and imbalance of muscles and to relieve it we have to teach them to lengthen and relax.

Our muscles exist as interconnected webs which work together as one system and not as individuals.

Nowadays there is an obsession with ‘core’ training, but training individual segments like your ‘core’ causes imbalance leading to increased muscular tension resulting in pain and injury.

Our traditional view of ‘core’ muscles can be seen in the first picture - namely your abdominals and glutes. But if you look at how muscles actually connect to one another then you see that this is a very limited view. Constantly working your abs and glutes in isolation can have highly damaging consequences leading to a multitude of injuries including back pain.

The second picture shows ‘The Deep Front Line’ coined by Tom Myers @anatomytrainsofficial . The Deep Front Line is made up of a far greater bulk of deep muscular tissue that spans the entire body from feet to head. These muscles are your ‘true core’. The @foundationtraining decompression exercises work the entire ‘Deep Front Line’ at once to encourage balance throughout the body allowing the joints to move freely.

Research shows that we fear pain in our backs more than any other area of our body.

Why does this fear exist? These days if we have persistent back pain, the treatment route leads quickly to MRI scans which often show disc degeneration and/or bulges. However, research shows that these findings are normal and apparent in pain free populations too and are not a marker of chronic pain.

When we are told that we have a disc bulge or degeneration we start treating our back as if they are seriously injured - we constantly brace our core, hold ourselves in ridged postures and restrict movement.

Rigidity causes pain as the muscles are overworking in a constant state of tension. In order to relieve the pain we have to teach the muscles to lengthen and relax and allow the spine to move freely.
