Our Review of the S.M.S. Low Back System
The S.M.S. Low Back Rehab Program came to our attention as many of our readers began telling us about this great new system that had helped them finally get out of low back pain. We took a good, hard look at it and really liked what we saw. What really sticks out to us about this rehab program is that it addresses the real roots of the problem when it comes to low back pain.
We are always talking about doing the right kind of rehab as the best way to get out of low back pain and this is the first book we have seen that seems to hit the bulls eye. Almost all the other back rehab programs out there miss the point and rely on gimmicks and expensive junk equipment to try and get people out of pain short term, but these tricks rarely work. According to our analysis, the S.M.S. rehab program works, because it gets the body back into postural balance which actually eliminates low back pain naturally.
What we like about the S.M.S. Low Back Program
There are a number of things to love about this program. First, and most importantly, the program works very quickly. There are no tricks or gimmicks with this system and it really helps people get out of pain and stay pain free for good. Second, the whole program can be done at home without the need for any equipment. Third, the S.M.S. program addresses the two main kinds of postural issues that almost everyone falls into and helps you work through the process to fix them. And fourth, it has 3 levels that allows anyone to do it (whether you are laid up in bed or active).
Getting to the root of low back pain…
As you will see in most of our articles, we are always talking about muscular imbalance which ends up messing with your posture and warping your spine out of alignment. And based off the research out there, it seems obvious (and common sense too), that you have to fix that first and foremost. For example, the two main kinds of postural distortions that warp the spine are lordosis and kyphosis. Until you deal with that, it’s impossible to get out of back pain in a natural, healthy and long term way. The S.M.S. program addresses this head on with complete stretching and exercises programs for each of these postural distortion. And we believe the stretches and exercises that are used in the book are right on in terms of getting the most bang for your buck as far as results go. They are gentle, but yield results quickly.
What does S.M.S. stand for?
The S.M.S. Back Program is broken down into 3 separate parts – Strength, Mobility and Stability. The strength refers to the fact that over time, many muscles in your body become very weak due to a lack of use. As you know, most of us sit all day and live a very sedentary lifestyle. These weak muscles need to be strengthened to get you back into proper alignment. Mobility refers to the tight muscles we have in our body. These tight muscles are the other half of the coin when it comes to postural distortion. So, proper mobility is key in getting these muscles to relax and open up. And finally, Stability in the core is essential to protect the lower back and get you out of pain. Those are the three basic foundations of the S.M.S. program.
All in all, we don’t have anything bad to say about the program. It is simple to understand, has good quality color photos for all the exercises and stretches. It has 3 levels for people of all fitness and pain levels. And it does address the underlying muscular imbalance and postural distortion issues that cause low back pain. And one last thing we really like- they have a solid 30 day money back guarantee, so it gets our highest recommendation!
