My aim here was to create a useful review of the “Forward Head Posture Fix” system by Rick Kaselj & Mike Westerdal and after reading the guide from beginning to end followed by a little research, I found some very interesting information.
Skeletal Muscles – How they Cause Back Pain
The skeletal bones make up more than 200 short, long, irregular, and flat structures. Inside the bones is calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and RBCs, or marrow, which produces and generates red blood cells. The bones work alongside the muscles. The muscles and bones afford support, defense for the internal organs, and locomotion.
The skeletal muscles are our source of mobility, which supports the posture. The muscles work alongside the posture by shortening and tightening. The bones attach to the muscles via tendons. The muscle then starts to contract with a stimulus of muscle fibers via a motor nerve cell, or neuron. (Central Nervous System-CNS) CNS is a network or system of nerve cells, fibers, etc., that conveys and transmits sensations to the brain, which carries signals to the “motor impulses” and onto the organs and muscles.
Ligaments are robust bands combined with collagen threads or fiber that connect to the bones. The bands, fiber, and bones join to encircle the joints, which gives a source of strength. Bodyweight requires cartilages, joints, ligaments, bones, muscles, etc. to hold its weight. Next to ligaments are tendons. Tendons are ligaments and muscles combined since it connects to the muscles and is made of connective proteins or collagen. Tendons, however, do not possess the same flexibility as the ligaments do.
Joints are the connective articulated junctions between the bones. Joints connect to two bones and its plane and provide stability as well as locomotion. Range Of Motion is the degree of joint mobility, and if ROM is interrupted, the joints swell, ache, and cause pain. The pain often affects various parts of the body, including the back. Joints connect with the knees, elbow, skull, bones, etc., and work between the synovium. Synovium is a membrane. The membrane lines the inner plane of the joints. Synovium is essential since it supplies antibodies. The antibodies combined with this membrane create fluids that reach the cartilages. The fluids help to decrease resistance, especially in the joints. Synovium works in conjunction with the cartilages and joints.
Cartilage is the smooth plane between the bones of a joint. The cartilage will deteriorate with restricted ROM or lack of resistance in the weight-bearing joints. This brings in the bursa. Bursa is a sac filled with fluid. Bursa assists the joints, cartilages, bones, and synovium by reducing friction. Bursa also works by minimizing the risks of joints rubbing against the other. In short, the bursa is padding.
If fluids increase, it can cause swelling, and inflammation, in turn, causing body pain, and including back pain. Sometimes the pain starts at the lower back, yet it could work around various areas of the body.
