Dr. McGill: The Subtleties of Pain and Posture

Subtleties of Pain and Posture with Dr. McGill (part 2)

Subtleties of Posture and Pain

Posture and back pain are very complex discussion that needs nuance. In this video, Dr. McGill discusses the nuance of back pain in neck and leg positions. It’s more than just sitting up with ‘good posture.’

The fact is that most people that come to McGill Providers have exhausted the typical quick fixes, and we have to take a different approach. But, again, to quote McGill, “I think we have a little bit of a bias; when someone can go to the chiro or whatever and get a quick fix, that’s fabulous, but we don’t see those people; we see the ones who fail with those.”

Some people can go to the PT or the Chiro and get a cookie-cutter treatment and get better… for a time, some seemingly indefinitely. But,  I see people daily who this type of modailitiy used to work like a charm. But, things have changed; their injury has worsened or is now impacting other tissues because the adjustment, the stretch, the shot, or the treatment was passive, and they didn’t address the cause of their pain. Their injury wasn’t addressed, and the symptoms were treated. There is a substantial difference! Beyond this, I’m going to let the video do the talking.

If you have been stuck in this type of 15min practitioner purgatory and it’s no longer working for you, please READ THIS!

Brian is a retired world-class powerlifter with over two decades of world-class powerlifting. From 1999 to 2020, Brian Carroll was a competitive powerlifter, one of the most accomplished lifters in the sport's history. Brian started off competing in bench press competitions 'raw,' then, shortly into the journey, he gravitated toward equipped lifting as there were no "raw" categories then. You only had to choose from single-ply (USPF) and Multi-ply (APF/WPC). Brian went on to total 2730 at 275 and 2651 at 242 with more than ten times his body weight in three different classes (220, 242, 275), and both bench pressed and deadlifted over 800 pounds in two other weight classes. He's totaled 2600 over 20 times in 2 different weight classes in his career. With 60 squats of 1000lbs or more officially, this is the most in powerlifting history, regardless of weight class or federation, by anyone not named David Hoff. Brian realized many ups and downs during his 20+ years competing. After ten years of high-level powerlifting competition and an all-time World Record squat at 220 with 1030, in 2009, Brian was competing for a Police academy scholarship. On a hot and humid July morning, Brian, hurdling over a barricade at 275lbs, landed on, fell, and hurt his back. After years of back pain and failed therapy, Brian met with world-renowned back specialist Prof McGill in 2013, which changed his trajectory more than he could have imagined. In 2017, Brian Carroll and Prof McGill authored the best-selling book about Brian's triumphant comeback to powerlifting in Gift of Injury. Most recently (10.3.20) -Brian set the highest squat of all time (regardless of weight class) with 1306 lbs – being the first man to break the 1300lb squat barrier at a bodyweight of 303 lbs.
