Across New Zealand, too many people suffer from chronic back pain. It is a condition that often limits movement and a person’s abilities to carry on with their tasks and other activities day to day. The costs of suffering from this has also been great but unfortunately, no conventional pain remedy has ever worked to provide permanent relief.
In New Zealand, Back Pain Is Far Too Common and Costly
The numbers are simply staggering. According to the New Zealand Medical Journal, as much as 24 percent of New Zealanders have reported experiencing back pain at some point in their lives. The pain levels range from moderate to severe. Unfortunately, a good number of the treatments and medications they have already tried basically don’t work and if they work, the relief is only for a short period of time. Pretty soon, the pain comes back and suffering begins once more.
Conventional Treatments Fail to Address the Muscle Imbalance That Causes Back Pain
If you think about it, the problem with most treatments for back pain is they only focus on the pain itself and ignore the cause of the condition. What some fail to realize is that oftentimes, chronic pain is caused by muscle imbalance that have occurred in the patient over the course of time.

These imbalances can occur in any part of your body and no one is safe from it. In fact, everyone experiences a form of muscle imbalance at some point in their lives, regardless of their sex, age, or even level of fitness.

It could be the activity that you are tasked to do in the office five days a week, your weekly round of sports, or daily workout routine in the gym. On the other hand, it can also result from household chores. When a certain part of your body is used in the same manner frequently, muscle imbalance can occur without warning.
Muscle imbalance presents itself as a great deal of discomfort and pain. This is exactly what could be happening inside your body when you experience any form of back pain. Fortunately, back pain as a result of muscle imbalance can be easily treated. In fact, the most recommended therapy for it is aptly named muscle balance treatment.
