5 Reason Why Your Lower Back Hurts When You Walk As a lower back pain specialist who has worked with thousands of people suffering with lower back pain and having experienced over a year of lower back pain myself and every possible intervention known to man I know for a fact that the number one difficulty when someone has back pain is walking.  Now I’m here to share with you why that is. Here are the 5 most common reasons why walking is so hard and painful when your back hurts.   Poor Hip Mobility. With every step we take our hip and pelvis move in three planes of motion.  If we have any lack of motion in our hip it will cause the spine to move more than it is designed to move.  Overtime this increased motion can begin to create inflammation and compression of the nerves that exit the spine.  This leads to sciatica and lower back pain.  Limited Foot and Ankle Mobility. Every time our foot hits the ground when we are walking studies demonstrate that the body needs to absorb 2-3 times our body weight in forces.  Those forces end up traveling up into the spine. If

The Runner’s Guide to Injury Prevention Though spring hasn’t quite sprung, the past couple of weeks have certainly had some signs. Many of you are surely taking advantage of this beautiful weather, getting out there for a walk, maybe some skating on the still frozen bay or, if you’re really ambitious, you’re out there running. Around here we are in the heat of training for the upcoming Bayshore Half Marathon, and one of the things on our minds, and the minds of many runners is, “how can I prevent an injury?”. One of the worst feelings, and believe us we’ve all been there, is training for weeks and months for an upcoming race only to be side lined by an injury. Many times, runners who are training will experience “over use” injuries caused from improper body mechanics, which is essentially, the body working against itself. We see an influx of plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, and knee pain (amongst others) during these beautiful days as more and more athletes are getting out and starting to train for upcoming races. So, how can you be proactive and try to prevent those “over use” injuries? You’d be surprised that just a few simple

Pain Free Shoulders Words From the Patient In this week’s blog we’re letting our past patients brag about how we helped them find pain free movement, specifically in their shoulders. At 55 years old, I have a history of challenges with my shoulders related to sports and trauma and I realized my body was not as flexible as it used to be, probably contributing to shoulder issues, sometimes pain and arms falling asleep at night. So, I came to the shoulder workshop and met Ben and decided to try some physical therapy to assess where my body needs more attention and get recommendations to support my shoulders. After 3 sessions, I had some great take away exercises to continue to support my body’s needs. – Carol Schwab Small motion aggravated my shoulder more than larger heavy motion. I love to knit and sew quilts on a machine. These activities aggravated my shoulder and caused pain under the shoulder blade. Nick was able to explain how the pain was caused, which the doctors couldn’t do. I was confident the cause could be diagnosed and prevention of pain could be accomplished here at Superior. I am now knitting daily for hours without
