“The light bulb vs the torch”

Optimum Body Mechanic vs Traditional Therapies

Recently a client attended our clinic and is a great example to why a lot of our clients choose to work with Optimum Body Mechanic (OBM) over Traditional Therapies (TT).

TT are usually the massage, sports massage, Physiotherapy, Chiropractors, etc. They are all fantastic but a lot of clients that work with OBM have also worked with TT previously and not found any long term success from those treatments. A lot are prescribed by their Doctors, others just pop into their nearest centre and hope for the best.

How does the light bulb and the torch fit into all this?

For a lot of us, when we wake up it’s dark. You’re making your way downstairs to the living room. Do you put the landing light on or do you use a torch to find your way?

You’ve made it to the living room and looking for your keys. Is it easier to put the light on and scan the room for them or use a torch?

It’s the same with therapy. At OBM we use a light bulb approach to get an insight of the overall picture. Whereas TT go for the torch and work on the area of pain/ injury.

The client presented in clinic with hip pain that was severe enough to affect her sleep quality and general daily movements – sitting, walking, etc. She also reported it to feel unstable. It also kicks up a few gears when she partakes in her gym and Yoga classes.

Previous TT treatments she received involved them focussing their torch on the hip area. Improvements would last for a week or so and she’d have to book in weekly.

When she attended for her session with OBM, we switched on the light bulb to see the whole picture. In her case it was a muscle in the eye that was causing a neurological dysfunction and resulting in her hip problem. (Yes, her eye was the cause and yes it can be corrected and very simply. We have fully qualified and registered eye specialists at OBM.)

If you cannot see where you are going, things are not gonna be fun. Her hip problem was resolved without any work on the hip, we didn’t really touch the hip at all!
