 The "Hidden Cause" of Back Pain…




There's a hidden cause of back pain… it's something very few medical or healthcare professionals are even aware of… If they were, they wouldn't be treating conditions.


Instead, they'd be identifying and addressing what brought about the condition in the first place.

For example, if you were diagnosed with a herniated disc, instead of just treating the symptoms, they should be finding out what caused the disc to herniate to begin with.

Back pain does not happen overnight…

While the pain may appear suddenly, the fact is the problem has been developing for months or more likely, years.

The reason you have back pain is because your body and spine have been pulled out of their normal position and into what we call dysfunctions.

If you are like most people, you move around and live your life without ever being aware that you are forcing your body to work with these dysfunctions, and sooner or later your body breaks down.

An example of a dysfunction can be seen in the illustration and as you can see, there is an excessive curve in the lower spine. 


Then the condition causes pain and as you know, pain is your body's way of alerting you to a problem that needs to be fixed… just as a light on the dashboard of a car alerts the driver to a problem.

 As you can imagine, it doesn't take long before this results in pain. It's very important to understand though, that these dysfunctions don't just appear out of nowhere – we create them!


Physical dysfunctions develop over time and are the direct result of imbalances between various muscle groups, what we call "muscle imbalances".

 Did you know that while you may feel pain in your back, the actual cause of the pain could be the front of your thighs?

 For example, an imbalance between the muscles of the thighs can pull your pelvis and spine out of position and this dysfunction can quickly cause all sorts of problems.


Muscle Imbalances Are The "Hidden Cause" of Nearly
Every Case of Back Pain and Sciatica…

What on earth is a muscle imbalance you ask? When a muscle or group of muscles overpowers the opposing muscle(s), you have a muscle imbalance. Think of it as a Tug-of-War.

When your muscles are out of balance they pull your bones and joints out of their normal position and this places them under constant and uneven stress.

For example, the position and curvature of your spine is determined by the amount of balance in numerous muscle groups like the thighs, hips and torso.

When muscle imbalances pull your spine and body out of alignment, the level of stress on certain muscles, bones and joints increases.

And even the smallest muscle imbalance can over time pull you out of balance and place tremendous amounts of uneven pressure and wear and tear on your body… especially the vertebrae, discs, spine and its supporting muscles.

Why Do You Have Muscle Imbalances?

There are several things that contribute to and create muscle imbalances such as how active you are, what activities you do frequently, if you exercise, the exercises you perform, how you sit, stand and walk, if you work, what you do for work, etc.

Also, it’s very important to note that everyone has muscle imbalances and as you may have already realized, muscle imbalances are responsible for more than just back pain and sciatica. But just to make sure you understand and grasp this concept, here’s a quick analogy to help drive home the point.

What happens when you drive your car with unbalanced tires or your steering out of alignment? Your tires will wear down unevenly and quicker than normal and eventually you'll have a blowout… the same is true for your body!

Think about this for a minute…

Even if you injured your back while lifting something or gardening, we are certain that it isn’t the underlying cause. What caused it was the months and years of uneven pressure and wear and tear on your body caused by muscle imbalances.

The event simply was your body finally breaking down.

The Secret To Getting Lasting Relief Is…

In order to get long-term relief from back pain you have to start at the beginning, and that’s with the muscle imbalances. This means you have to identify the muscle imbalances that you have and then work towards correcting and improving them.

While this may sound complicated, the good news is it isn’t! Just by reading this advisory you should now have an understanding of how back pain develops and because of this your recovery will be much easier and faster than most other back pain sufferers.

So how do you do find out which muscle imbalances you have?

Use This Simple 3 Step Formula To Eliminate Your Back Pain…

Identify the Cause


Treat the Symptoms


Treat the Cause and Condition


Remember, pain is just a warning signal from your body telling you that you need to fix a problem.

Beginning any treatment plan without first identifying all of the muscle imbalances is a recipe for failure and frustration.

Hopefully at this point you are saying to yourself, this makes so much sense…

AMATSU can help with this process.

  Amatsu, a modern adaptation of an ancient Japanese hands-on therapy which is over 3,000 years old.  Amatsu that can be administered to most muscular-skeletal problems for correction, pain management and rehabilitation. It also addresses the triad of stresses on the body – namely physical, emotional and nutritional factors. The purpose of Amatsu is to aid in the restoration of health and it is extremely effective because it has this core principle.

All ATA Amatsu Practitioners are trained to offer after care life skills advice to clients. These include postural management, Kinetic handling, nutritional guidance and stress management principles. Our minimal treatment protocol in acute cases includes a consultation examination and evaluation; followed by 4-6 weekly sessions, then re-evaluation, and if required a management or rehabilitation programme.  The number of treatments required will also depend on the individual problems.

Amatsu includes:

1.    Massage techniques

2.    Stretching, unwinding, neuromuscular techniques etc.

3.    Positioning, postural ergonomics, alignment methods etc.

4.    Muscle energy, resistive, passive, articulations etc.

5.    Pressure points, Acupressure/Shiatsu.


It is not just physical injury that can cause problems. Amatsu therapy is based on the idea of the Godai or 'Big Five' – five areas that interact and influence the way our body responds to life.

·        ENVIRONMENTAL: where, when and how you do what you do.

·        PHYSICAL: your bodies structure, bones, muscles and ligaments.

·        EMOTIONAL: your thought processes, emotions, beliefs and values.

·        CHEMICAL: your hormones, digestive system, the food you eat etc.

·        ELECTRICAL: your nervous and energy systems.
