*******TheBadBackGuy**** Muscle imbalances may be the most misunderstood and misdiagnosed condition leading to neck pain, back pain, and sciatica. Muscles are often either synergistic or antagonistic. Meaning, the muscles either work with one another or the oppose one another. Opposing muscles do not oppose each other in a negative fashion but in a positive one. Like muscles that work together, as in synergy or synergistic muscles, antagonistic muscle groups work as opposites but they do so to move the body or to do any number of functions.

I mistakenly call a group of muscles synergistic, when in fact they are antagonistic. This is quite common, as they all work together.
However, muscles, like people, can sometimes be a bit overpowering...and that isn't a good thing! Muscles need to be in balance, every muscle and muscle group doing their job in just the right way at just the right time. If a muscle or muscle group is too weak or too powerful, it can create problems for the individual.
In our case, muscle imbalances can create situations leading to neck pain, back pain, and/or sciatica. It is up to our medical practitioner to recognize and correct these imbalances.
Unfortunately, as stated above, this is often an issue because many medical practitioners, and even many physical therapists, are unaware of the significance of this condition and how best to treat it.
A solid physical assessment is necessary to reveal muscle imbalances and then once they are diagnosed, the proper stretching and exercise program can be prescribed to remedy the imbalance and relieve the neck pain, back pain, and sciatica associated with it.
The video addresses this condition and describes what it is and why it is crucial you remedy the condition of you are to acheive neck pain, back pain, and/or sciatiac relief long term.
