The importance of health care provider educating you on what’s causing your pain and what’s not causing your pain cannot be underestimated. If you have been told your in pain because of a bone that is out of place, your spine is out of alignment, your spine and core are weak and need to be braced etc.. These rarely cause back pain and will often lead to worse outcomes and restricted movements and daily activities (making pain worse) out of fear and cause a greater dependence on treatment.
Kieran also teaches his patients how to best negate the effects of sitting for long periods of time. Such as alternating between sitting/standing, taking micro breaks & using different techniques that go much further than just ‘sitting up straight’, sitting up straight all day is not too different than sitting slouched all day. Things like emotional stress, fear avoidance behaviors, lack of quality sleep, poor diets especially high in sugar/processed foods can also impact pain levels which rarely get addressed by most health professionals.
