You don’t have a “bad back”

How often do we hear “I have a bad back”, I think any Exercise Physiologist (EP) would say – daily.

No one has a bad back, rather people have either an injury or patterns and habits that are causing back pain.

Why is this important? The way we speak and frame our issues to ourselves impact the solutions and future outcomes we will aspire for.

If you have a disc injury, bad movement patterns or habits, these are issues that are manageable.

However a “bad back” or shoulder or knee is like telling ourselves we have an unsolvable problem, and if this is our beliefs, it will probably end up being true in the longer term also.
