What Is Simple Back Pain?

'Simple' back pain is the term used by doctors and scientists when there's no demonstrable evidence to account for the painful symptoms. Up to 90% of cases that present with lower back problems fall into this category and this could include you. If you hear similar terms like ‘non-specific back pain' or 'back pain of unknown aetiology', these are also interchangeable and refer to the same condition.  

Using a BackBlock (see image below) is a principal feature of the Sarah Key Method. The 3-step exercises used with the BackBlock are also known as Pressure Change Therapy or PCT. 

“Sarah is undoubtedly one of the most charming, insightful and inspiring people I have met. After a lifetime of learning and developing her methods I hope she is able expand her teachings as far and wide as possible and to leave a positive stamp on the chronicles of relief from bank discomfort.” 
Daniel Lawrence, Physiotherapist. 

The Cause Of Your Painful Symptoms

Start with Sarah's unique classification of all Spine Disorders to get to know what's wrong. She provides you with a simple to follow overview of the group your back and related pain  fits into and, more importantly, how fixable you are. 

The Cause Of Back Pain

The longer the original trigger for back pain is allowed to continue, the less it becomes reversible and you become less able to work your way out of it.

This article helps you to understand the causes of your back and related discomfort in a non-technical way and the good news is that in 90% of cases there is much you can do.

Exercises For Sciatica

Sciatica - or pain in the leg caused by trouble in the back, can be one of the most persistently crippling forms of pain from the lower back. You don't always need a medical practitioner but even if you do, the sciatica relief exercises on this page will contribute to a strong recovery.

Spinal Scoliosis Facts

Spinal scoliosis or 'crooked' spine is probably the most common of the congenital spine disorders although it does have a remarkably wide range of severity.

This article focusses on physical therapy for scoliosis with some highly effective 'spinal unbending' techniques. Also read about how to strengthen your spine to ward off further crumpling.

Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression is my most fundamental form of self treatment and is a strong basis for the ongoing prevention and relief of back and related discomfort. We need to do these exercises simply because we are all weighed down throughout the day by the ever-present compressive forces of gravity!

Gravity squashes the daylights out of lumbar discs and this decompression therapy deals with that.
