Advice from the Skillful Doctor: Holistic Healing

Question: One of the obstacles I’m facing in life is my back hurts so much that I can’t really exercise. I know how important exercise is and am wondering what I can do about this?  

Answer:  There are many modalities out there – some conventional and some alternative – that you can explore to get relief from your back pain. I will discuss a number of these over time, including:  

  • Osteopathy
  • Physical therapy
  • Acupuncture
  • Other forms of bodywork such as massage therapy

  And many more. However the principle I would raise here is that whomever you see, you seek a practitioner that has a holistic approach to your issue. The more holistic they are and the broader their perspective is, the better they will be for your back and for your life.   The most common practitioner that is sought for your condition other than those in the mainstream medical field is a chiropractor. However, not all chiropractors are the same. I suggest you find one whose holistic approach extends beyond just the problems with your spine.  

I will be discussing holistic approaches to back health with chiropractor Dr. John Scivoletto on the June 12th episode of The Skillfull Living Room show. To listen live when it airs at 12 noon EDT on that day, click HERE.  After it will remain in the archives of the Business Talk Radio Network.
