How to treat IT Band Syndrome

Posted by on Jan 9, 2018 in Chiro Blog | 0 comments

When people have pain on the side of their leg, most people mistakenly either work out that muscle or stretch it; however, both ideas are wrong.  Since the IT band is not a muscle, it cannot be stretched or strengthened like a muscle; however, the muscles around the IT band can be stretched and strengthened.  A common condition involving the IT band is “Iliotibial band syndrome.”  This condition is caused when the IT band has repeatedly rubbed on either the bony point of your hip or knee.  This inflames the fascia around it and causes pain.

Is your back pain “All in your Head”? Research says this may actually be true!

Posted by on Dec 31, 2017 in Chiro Blog | 0 comments

Most people do not want to hear that the pain is all “in their head;” however, some recent research may support this claim. Dr. John Sarno, a famous back pain doctor, used a technique similar to Emotional Freedom Techniques. Sarno says that one can unconsciously cause pain due to emotional responses such as anger, fear, frustration and rage. He explains it as your brain suppressing these emotions and your body directing the emotions elsewhere eg: neck, back, shoulders. Sarno states that pain is actually a distraction from what is truly bothering us and that the pain is what keeps us from an emotional explosion. Sarno believed that people can overcome their pain by confronting their conflicting emotions. Sarno’s work lived on after he died and is present in many research studies. Recent studies show that pain from conditions such as fibromyalgia had significant results using emotion awareness and expression therapy in reducing pain.
