This biopsychosocial graphic was published by Gordon Waddell in his book “The Back Pain Revolution”, 1998. It’s pretty and simple and I like that. Unfortunately, back pain is not pretty and it is not simple 🤕 The (BPS) model was likely first introduced by George Engel in 1977. As with all big changes, it took the better part of the next 20-30 years for this model to be considered and utilized by doctors and clinicians as part of the assessment and treatment protocol for low back pain. The BPS model proposes that our thoughts, beliefs and social environment influence our perception of pain. This awareness offered more considerations to the “strictly structural” diagnostic model. This means that clinicians were starting to treat patients with the understanding that there may be both mechanical reasons for low back pain AND there may be some self-limiting beliefs that are impeding the recovery process. In layman’s terms: It’s not all “you’re broken” and it’s not “all in your head” - it’s a little of both 😉. Think about it: We’re all a bit worn for wear in our years and we’re all wary of getting hurt, right? So far, so good. addition to structural and biopsychosocial considerations, there are also neuro.immuno.lymphatic.fascial considerations too 👀 We begin to see the whole person. Each of us is a fabulous and unique collection of thoughts, fears, sleeps, drinks, eats, diets, lifestyles, movements, genetics — it’s ALL involved so we want to ask ALL the questions and work with the whole person to #RetrainBackPain 🦚 #spondy #herniateddiscs #degenerativediscdisease #backfitpro

🦵🏼UNCROSS YOUR LEGS🦵🏼 Can you do it? One week: #uncrossyourlegschallenge Crossing your legs throws your pelvis off-kilter, which can potentially aggravate your back. We tend to always cross the same way, further feeding muscular and postural imbalances that may be causing pain. Hanging out in your joints is one of your body’s hacks around the “work” of using your muscles. I challenge you to a week of NOT crossing your legs. That includes: Crossing your knees, crossing your ankles, crossing one ankle over top of other knee, sitting with one leg tucked under you and yes, sitting like a pretzel. Try it! It’s a real eye 👁 opener. #uncrossyourlegschallenge #retrainbackpain
