As an experienced physical therapist, I have become more and more convinced about the importance of treating abdominal surgeries with physical therapy, similar to offering physical therapy after a knee, or shoulder surgery. During the first few years of my practice, I would occasionally see a client who had a sudden onset of low back pain after an abdominal surgery. These individuals did not often make the link between their back pain and abdominal surgery. However, the abdomen is the front of the back, and there are numerous direct and indirect links between our abdominal cavity, pelvis, lumbar, and thoracic spines. Many of these links are through ligamentous and...

The average Haitian makes about $750 per year, and the median age is 22.6. The infrastructure in Haiti was not ideal prior to 2010, but...
Your iliacus and psoas muscles, are part of a group of muscles called your hip flexors. These muscles can become short from just the sheer number of hours that we sit in a day, and overused when we try to sit up without our spine supported. Short and tight hip flexors are a common cause of back ache, and hip dysfunction. If you have ever had your psoas or iliacus released through your abdomen, you can testify to the discomfort of this technique, even if it has been effective for you in the past. Fear not, there are simpler ways to tame these muscles. Try out this sequence at...
