Q I travel regularly for work and have developed lower back pain in then sacro region. Physio and acupuncture give light relief but are ineffective in curing the issue, mainly due to relapse caused by ongoing travel. I have heard of the Bowen technique. Is this something that can assist with sacroiliac joint issues?

A Back ache can be tenacious, specially if you spend a lot of time in a car travelling. If you have had many treatments and only had slight improvement with your back issue, have you ever thought in having an MRI performed to see what exactly is going on with your back? Nevertheless,yes Bowen Therapy not only assists you in balancing your body but can also assist in sacroiliac joint issues.
Is this helpful?

A Bowen technique will definitely help however you may need a long term self care solution. TBT© Tennis Ball Technique as a simple and effective way to self-massage and is particularly useful for long distance drivers and pilots. Lower back problems of this type are often due to hamstrings being too tight because normal seated posture does not provide the same level of stretch as sitting on the ground.

TBT for the Hamstrings can be done any time you are seated.
Lift up the leg that is least tight (usually the left) and place a tennis ball underneath it, mid way down the thigh. Allow the leg to relax for about 20 seconds.

Place the ball slightly lateral (to the out side of the leg) and repeat the exercise. Then do the exercise medially (to the in
side of the leg). regards Chris Toal © All rights WAW Ltd 2007 www.wellnessatwork.co.nz
