Chicago Doctor Reveals the Low Back Pain Treatment Protocol that is helping Local Gymnasts and Runners get Back to Working out Fast.
...while also avoiding expensive medications and surgeries.
One of the scariest things that can happen in the life of a gymnast or runner is having to deal with injuries. The uncertainty of getting good treatment and the rehab process is something that keeps even the toughest gymnasts and runners up at night. One of the scariest injuries that gymnasts and runners have to deal with are injuries to their Low Back.

It's hard to know whether or not you have a minor injury that is caused by overuse or something more
serious that could require surgery and keep you out of your work out routine longterm. The good news is that once you understand the usual core causes of low back pain in gymnasts and runners, you can actually do something about it with some very simple and inexpensive treatments. More importantly, once you understand the underlying cause of your low back issues, you can also do a lot to avoid the things that caused it (and get your body over the issue before it becomes a long term problem). 

On rare occasion, some athletic low back injuries do require surgeries and long term rehab. Most often, however, Lower Back issues in gymnasts and runners are caused by common injuries that are easy to treat if acted upon quickly. Understanding this can save you a lot of money and rehab time and get you back to working out fast.

So... what are some of the most common Low Back Injuries in gymnasts and runners and how can you get them treated quickly? (keep reading)
What are the Most Likely Causes of Low Back Pain and Stability Issues in (15-35 year old) Gymnasts and Runners?
Low Back Pain and Instability can be caused by a lot of different things but, in gymnasts and runners between the ages of 24-35, the most likely culprit is typically muscles that have been pulled or used past the point of exhaustion.
The key to effectively treating these low back conditions is to understand exactly how a muscles can become so overused that it is pushed to the point of injury or overuse.

In the typical gymnast, a low back issue typically starts long before the actual real pain sets in. For most gymnasts and runners Low Back Issues work like this.
  • Step 1: The "No Big Deal" Injury
    They experience a minor injury like a sprained ankle or a minor fall.
  • Step 2: Working Out Through it 
    Most gymnasts and runners work out through a minor injury and, minus some soreness, the pain goes away within a few days.
  • Step 3: The Body Adaptation Phase
    Even though the pain of the previous small injury goes away, the body starts to adapt to the injury. This adaptation is usually a group of muscles tightening to compensate for the injury. This group of muscles is often in the Low Back since it serves as a pivot point in the body.
  • Step 4: The Weakened Muscle Group
    After an extended period of compensating for an injury that was never adequately treated, the muscle group becomes exhausted and opens the body up to pain from the fatigue.
  • Step 5: The Big Injury
    Typically the big low back injury comes from the effects of the injury that was never treated and the exhausted muscles that helped the body adapt to that injury. This is a common core cause of Low Back Pain that is bad enough to keep you from working out or walking in a normal way (due to severe pain).
So if the Low Back Pain you're experiencing is coming from a group of muscles that has become exhausted from compensating from an earlier injury... How do you Fix the Underlying Problem and Get our of Pain? (see below)
The Powerful Treatment Protocol We've Been Successfully Using to Help Gymnasts and Runners Get Relief from Their Low Back Pain and Increase Stability.

Gold Coast Chiropractic's
Athletes Low Back Pain Relieve and Stability Protocol:
Over the last 10 years we've focused our office on helping Chicago gymnasts and runners beat low back pain and instability. While some offices focus on being a "catch all" provider, we have been dialing in our procedure for helping patients who suffer from a few specific ailments. 

After working with hundreds of gymnasts and runners who have been afflicted with low back pain, we've developed a treatment protocol that is specifically tailored to the body of an athlete. Because of this focus we've developed a gentle and medication free way of helping gymnasts and runners get rid of their low back pain while, at the same time, treating the condition that caused it in the first place.
Our Special Treatment Protocol uses a combination of Gentle Low Back and Hip Joint Adjustments, Focused Physiotherapy, as well as a Low Back Focused Home Rehabilitation program. 
The Careful Combination of these treatments can help you stop the unhealthy processes that are going on in your low back before they become an even bigger issue. Our Athletic Low Back Pain and Instability Treatment Protocol works so well because we help you body overcome the processes causing the pain and instability as we help you make the muscles in your low back even stronger.

Most of the low back issues we see in older gymnasts and runners took years to develop. Our treatment works well because we make sure that we set your body up to heal before the condition is allowed to get worse (so you don't experience this as you get older). Our success rate with this condition is based on the fact that we always allow your body to do what it needs to do. No two patient's low back conditions are alike and we make sure that we treat each condition as such. This is critical in making sure that you heal as quickly as possible, while staying safe.

PLEASE NOTE: Not all Low Back Conditions are treatable with this protocol. We take special care during our exam to make sure that this treatment is right for you. (see below for more)
