Spend some time looking at this info-graphic. It shows that the incidence of pathological findings in otherwise healthy people are asymptomatic. What this means to you is just because various scans report findings such as degenerative changes or abnormal structures in the body that does not mean it is the source of your pain. These clinical findings could have been present for months or years without you knowing. The source of the problem may be your bodies reaction and perception of damage, not so much the tissue itself. So what’s the solution? Graded exposure through exercise and a regular strengthening program which can be done in any of our clinics.
