The musculo-skeletal health program, designed to help
you discover the likely causes of your
back pain -
and fix it yourself.
No magic potions or
pills; no rubbing, crunching, heating, icing, strapping, vibrating,
shocking, hanging-upside-down, doping or surgery; just you doing the flexibility exercises that get
your skeleton back into
alignment and doing the strength exercises that enable you to
perform every day tasks without breaking down.
We believe that the method employed at the CrookBackClinic is the
simplest and most cost effective way to relieve back pain.
We'll teach you to become your own therapist so you can do the
exercises at home. The more often you do them and the longer you do
them for, the higher the likelihood that you'll gain pain relief.
THE BAD NEWS
With back pain, in the sit-down-no stretch society it's frequently the case that over the weeks,
months, years and decades, muscles gradually tighten up and move
bones out of alignment. An incident may come along that tips you
over the edge, turning what may have just been a twinge into full
blown pain. Chances are you'll blame the incident - regardless of
how trivial - instead of blaming the underlying condition of your
That's the bad news.
THE GOOD NEWS
The good news is that if muscles have taken your bones out of
alignment there's a fair chance that with the right set of
exercises, muscles can get your bones back into alignment.
What this means is that if you have generated the pain there's every
likelihood that you can 'ungenerate' it.
The first thing we'll do
when you attend a CrooKBackClinic is give you a clinical diagnostic
assessment of the likely underlying cause(s) of your joint and
muscle pain. It's a matter of assessing which muscles have taken
your skeleton out of alignment.
To give you a clue visit
the clinical diagnostic assessment page.
WE'LL TEACH YOU THE EXERCISES
We'll teach you the
exercises you need to do to get your skeleton back into better
alignment. We'll teach you the strength exercises that will support
your skeleton while going about every tasks (like lifting,
propelling yourself and objects) without breaking down.
If the exercises recommended in the CrookBackClinic training program
are done on a regular and systematic basis you should soon start to
feel better as bones are drawn back into better alignment. A
reduction in pain means you're getting back into better alignment.
If the exercises are accompanied by other passive, manipulative, therapeutic modalities,
it's likely that the therapy will speed up the rehab process.
However, when it comes to treating bones that are out of alignment,
passive therapy will not take the place of the things your need to
do for yourself.
At the CrookBackClinic we go as far as to say that for 80% of people
there is an 80% chance that they can restore poor function to 80% of
normal - in around 80 days if they do at least 80 minutes of
exercises a day.
We'll provide you with an indication of what's causing your pain and
teach you the strength and flexibility exercises you need to do to
If we believe we can't help you we'll tell
you straight out.
If, after giving the program your 'best shot' you find it doesn't
work we'll refund your money. We'll be disappointed that we weren't
able to help you.
Your 'best shot' means doing the
exercises in the manner and time we suggest.
We recommend that our clients spend a couple of hours every day, on
the floor in front of TV or reading a book - doing the exercises.
That's what we believe it takes to stimulate the re-alignment
We'll prescribe you the exercises but we can't do them for you. This
not a program you can subcontract out to someone else. You are the
therapist. You have to do the exercises.
That's how simple the program is - just you giving your skeleton the
time to gradually get back into better alignment.
All it involves is you spending time daily doing exercises that get
your body back in alignment.
We don't sell expensive pills or crèmes. The CrookBackClinic process
doesn't include rubbing, crunching heating, icing, strapping,
vibrating, hanging-upside-down, doping or surgery, it's just you doing the exercises
every day until the pain has gone - and then continuing to do a
modified exercise routine to stop it coming back.
Oh, and there is one more
catch, we can give you the exercises but we can't do them for you!
IS THIS A QUICK FIX OR A QUACK FIX?
It's neither. How quickly you relieve your pain depends on
how far your skeleton is out of alignment
how long it's been out of alignment
how often you're prepared to do the exercises
how long each day you're prepared to do them.
Our minimum recommendation is a couple of hours a day. That's good.
If you can spend more time, that's better.
WHAT ABOUT OSTEO-ARTHRITIS?
The word 'arthritis' comes
from two words; 'arthro', meaning bone and 'itis' meaning
Joints are 'bearings' in
between two bones.
If the bones are out of
alignment, the ends of the bones start grinding on one another.
No amount of analgesic or
'joint food' will get bones back into alignment. You have to do that
So at the first sign of
pain, start doing the exercises that get the bones back into better
alignment and start strengthening the muscles that move those bones.
Does that sound simple?
Well it is. To just mask the pain means that poor function is
becoming worse. Before you know it, you'll be under the knife.
Don't delay any longer,
come and see us at the CrookBackClinic before it is too late.
