9 Key Insights for Managing Back Pain
Back pain is a big problem. It effects 8 out of 10 people at some point in their life. For 40% of those cases, it becomes chronic and effects their daily living. That means roughly 1/3 of the population is walking around with back pain that won’t go away.
And back pain doesn’t discriminate. It shows up in good times, and bad. It effects young and old.
If you’ve had back pain at some point in your life, it’s good to know that there are three ways to make sure it doesn’t become chronic or a long-term problem:
1) get an accurate diagnosis…find out what’s causing the pain, not just that there is pain or where the pain is coming from, the cause or source can be very different
2) get adequate treatment in quantity and quality that matches your problem, and do it in a timely fashion (yes, self care is important, but often with self care and even with some treatment, if it’s not comprehensive or personalized, it can help back pain feel better but not fix the problem)…unfortunately, but appropriately, we hope that the pain and the problem will be fixed in as short a time as possible, however some problems just take longer…patience and persistence go a long way to help in full recovery
3) learn about your back and back pain…research shows that people with back pain that understand what’s going on and why with their body get better faster and stay better longer
For that reason, I’ve included the 9 key insights for managing back pain with this blog. It’s good for everyone to know and understand, whether you have back pain or not. That’s because spinal health is a minimum mandatory prerequisite for a good quality life!
