Back Pain from Walking in an Airboot
Beth is a photographer who broke her foot in June 2017 and had been in an airboot for 6 weeks when she came to see me, initially asking if I could help with a pain that she got in her finger sometimes when unzipping her camera, and because her shoulders get stiff from work.
Her foot was healing on schedule and felt reasonably ok to her, though it would swell in the evenings. However, her right lower back and glute were in constant pain from the way that the airboot was making her walk. Assessment showed that the bones in her feet were slightly out of position.
I could see from her walking at the end of the session that the lower back was still locked up, so did a release technique on her, which stopped the lower back pain instantly. After the treatment she was very tired and “could have slept for a lifetime”. The pain in her back/glute went for about 5 days and just started returning the day before the second treatment
