Low back pain will affect 4 out 5 people at some point in their life.  That is a VERY BIG DEAL!

Adhesion is the most common, most misdiagnosed, and mistreated condition in the human body.  Adhesion, when present, will cause limited range of motion, decreased flexibility, pain, and speed up degeneration of the body!  Adhesion builds up from repetitive motion (like running/exercise), prolonged position (like sitting at a desk), or trauma (think car accident).  If left untreated, this condition can lead to disc injuries, muscle tears, and early onset arthritis.  Adhesion, is also, a VERY BIG DEAL and must be treated by an expert!

So how can you tell if you have adhesion?  Fortunately, there are some simple tests that you can try at home that can help you identify adhesion as a problem. Recently, we made a video using some of the same tests we use in our office to identify adhesion.  Simply click below, try the test, and see how you do!

Did the tests go well for you?  If so, try this simple exercise below that can help significantly strengthen your hamstrings and reduce stress and strain in your low back.  If after 2 weeks, you passed the tests but the exercise is not helping, call our office for help.  Adhesion may not be your problem but we can help to identify the problem and get you to where you need to be!
