Lower back pain

Introduction to Body Stress Release

BSR is a non-therapeutic complementary health technique based on the principle that the body can heal itself. We identify lines of tension and release them. We don’t diagnose or treat conditions. We don’t do massage, prescribe medication, manipulate limbs or work with machines. The information below is drawn from reports given by the client on his/her BSR experience.

The client complained of debilitating lower back pain, spasms and stiffness - mostly on the right side. including SI and sacral areas and sciatica on the right side. The client struggled to get moving in the morning, and was completely incapacitated on some bad days. He lived on voltaren injections, anti-inflammatories and pain killers.

Other symptoms experienced are heartburn, rotator cuff damage to the right shoulder and he also complained of heartburn, clicking knees and pain around the C7 area, with tight trapezius muscles and shoulders, limiting his mobility.

Additional information:

Impact on life:

His role as a farm manager is very demanding. Some days he literally couldn't walk. Other days he suffered excruciating pain. It was depressing and debilitating.

Changes to symptoms:

He felt looser after the 1st session and spasms subsided. The heartburn subsided until the day before the 3rd session (day 11) He kept coming - he had his 4th session after 2 weeks, 5th session after 2 weeks, 6th session after a month. Over this time there was huge improvement and only niggles coming and going. He was completely off any pain meds. His issue around C7 completely disappeared. He comes to see me generally every 6 weeks and is enjoying golf and a pain free life.

Client comments:

He couldn't thank me enough and says BSR has literally changed his life.

Other comments:

He was told by a doctor that one of the "holes" in his pelvis is too small so his pelvis is twisted and the left leg is 11mm shorter.
