Mel Collie | Jaw and Back Pain
My client has lower back pain, not common I grant you that, but this case was a little different when she told me as we discussed her history if pain and injuries that her jaw liked a lot since she was a kid when she had braces fitted.
I checked her jaw alignment.
It went to her right quite a bit.
When that happens the body compensates in other ways.
I checked one of her back muscles to see if it was inhibited or facilitated…it was inhibited.
Going back to her jaw, after checking to see if there was a connection with this and her weaker lower back muscle, turned out there was, releasing the jaw made her back switch on like Christmas tree lights.
Homework for her to do at least twice a day, as the brain takes a few thousand reps to unwind an old movement pattern and dysfunction, was to release that tight jaw on the right side and strengthen the lower back.
Will check back with her in 2 weeks to see if that new pattern has held.
