Why A Consultation With Dr. Rothbart Is Different Than With Other Doctors
Profile Of A Typical Candidate For Therapy
When most people go to their doctor with the complaint of ‘pain all over my back‘, the doctor’s usual diagnosis is that your back pain is due to degenerative disk disease (the deterioration of the disks between your vertebrae; which leads to a narrowing of the vertebral spaces and compression of the nerves leaving the spinal cord).
But contrary to what we frequently hear from our doctor, back pain is not usually caused by degenerative disk disease. So, let’s get on with the real reason most people have pain all over their back:
Back pain is usually the result of an alignment problem. Let’s look at how this happens:
Your spinal column is enveloped with muscles attaching themselves to the transverse and spinous processes of your vertebrae. These muscles are largely responsible for allowing you to move your spine side and side and front to back. When your spinal column is in its’ anatomical neutral position (the spinal curves are not distorted and the spine is not twisted) these muscles enveloping the spinal column function around their physiological neutral position (the muscles are neither stretched nor contracted).
However, when you have a postural distortion (an alignment problem) from whatever cause, your vertebrae are distorted, side to side and front to back. Respectively, these are called scoliotic and kyphotic curves.
These vertebral distortions change the position of the muscles enveloping your spinal column. The direction of these vertebral distortions determines which muscles are stretched and which muscles are contracted. That is, the physiological resting length of these muscles is no longer ‘normal’.
The result is that as your muscles function around a contracted or stretched position, they become fatigued and build up lactic acid. It’s this accumulation of lactic acid in your muscles that leads to pain all over your back.
Pain All Over Your Back Is Due To An Alignment Problem
And so, back pain (in most cases) is not due to degenerative disk disease, but to muscular problems resulting from a postural distortion (misalignments of the vertebrae). Once this is understood, it’s easy to understand how, by improving the posture, back pain will usually diminish.

Whether your chronic pain manifests as low back pain, mid back pain or pain all over your back, why struggle with temporary fixes and treatments that only work in the short term, like chiropractic, osteopathic or orthopedic interventions?
Reading the Curing Chronic Pain website will give you more information about the abnormal foot structures I discovered that cause many forms of chronic muscle and joint pain and help you determine whether an Initial Phone Consultation with Professor/Dr. Rothbart might be helpful.

Abnormal Foot Structures That Cause Chronic Pain
To find out if you may have one of two common inherited, abnormal foot structures that cause chronic muscle and joint pain, take the Rothbarts Foot Questionnaire.
As you learn more about my innovative therapy, you may find that addressing and effectively treating your foot structure may be the missing link to ending your long time battle with unrelenting muscle and joint pain.
