I thought I would write a quick update on my back situation since my last blog.
I am pain free! After consulting with the doctor who did the cranial treatments on me, I decided to stop wearing my orthotics. At the time I got them, it seemed like the right choice (I had foot pain, they solved it), but after writing a timeline of my health issues over the last few years, I see the following pattern:
Knee pain (solved by physiotherapy) > foot pain (solved by orthotics) > pelvic/low back pain
This made me think that I’m not really getting to the root of the issue here. So, I stopped wearing my orthotics on the 28th of September and I haven’t had much (if any) back pain since. During the first week after being treated, my back felt a bit strange, but not bad. At my appointment with my intern on Friday I rated my back discomfort as a 1 (on a scale from 0 to 5) and after he did acupuncture for it, it felt 100% fine!
According to the laws of cure, the pain moving from knees to feet was a positive change. The pain moving from my feet to pelvis/low back was not. So, at the very least I want it back to my feet!
So where to now? Yesterday I bought new running shoes since mine needed replacing but also because I need shoes to properly support my feet without the orthotics. I plan to ease back into running more often. Long-term, I am looking into some cranial therapies that I have access to here.
FYI, the technique used on me was BioCranial. Unfortunately the nearest practitioners to me are at least 3 or 4 hours drive from here. There is also Craniosacral Therapy and luckily there are practitioners here in Toronto, so I will try to make time to see one of them to work on a permanent solution to whatever misalignment I might have.
Thanks to everyone who sent me comments. I do think there are mental/emotional connections for my physical pain, as well as connections with some internal issues I’ve been working on since starting the BTD. I have made a lot of progress with my health in the past 4 years, and I am seeking to kick it up to the next level by working with my intern at the school clinic this year.
