Biokinetics for back pain

Hi everyone. I have had chronic lower back pain for some years now. My doc suggested I try a biokinetics specialist, who has been prescribing an exercise regime which I have been on for about 2 weeks. However I have had no relief. If anything the pain has just been shifting around. Has anyone tried this and had good results. My biokineticist wants to put me in a pilates class eventually. I would love some advice on pain management but I don't wantvto become dependent on drugs.

Re: Biokinetics for back pain

Has anyone diagnosed the cause of the pain? Is it constant pain? If exercise was recommended, does that mean they think it's a muscle problem?

Re: Biokinetics for back pain

Hi John. No, there doesn't appear to be a specific cause. I have held this tension in my back for ages and have just got bad at relaxing. In my biokinetics sessions I have become aware of this and am now working on the core muscles close to the spine. I have also been to 2 chiro sessions and had 2 back massages since I made this post, and at last am beginning to notice a slight improvement. So things are looking up! I have also begun a light jogging program and am on a diet as well, so it is a case of a thorough body reprogramming going on here.

Re: Biokinetics for back pain

When I was much younger I used to have lower back pain from time to time (muscle spasams). After many years, I learned that dehydration was a big contributing factor. I know it may seem strange but it's true. Once my back pain started, drinking water would be helpful but would not make it go away. At that point you just have to get plenty of rest. However, drinking plenty of water is most helpful when you first feel back strain starting.

There were a few times when I woke up early with a strain in my back. What I did was drink a big glass of water and go back to sleep. The next time I woke up, presto, no more back strain. If you haven't already done this, why not give it a try?
