Back Pain Interventions

How to relieve back pain

Doctors often prescribe various exercises, diets, stretch exercises, etc., to relieve back pain. According to statistics, more than 200 million Americans alone suffer back pain. Some patients endure surgery, while others find ways to minimize the pain. Unfortunately, some people turn to alcohol and drugs to relieve such pain.

When pain is chronic, it makes it difficult to cope with daily duties. Most pain in the back starts in the lower region. With so much suffering, many people make a hobby out of finding relief.

Back pain, mild or chronic, can slow activities, mobility, and so on. While there are many medical causes and sometimes mysterious causes, most people in the world fail to maintain the ROM of the joints by stretching and exercising regularly.

For this reason, back pain is the number one cause of time loss and money spent. Back pain alone is one of the prime reasons people must call in to work sick. According to statistics, the increase in back pains, the total estimate of loss, and medical costs soar up to 60 billion dollars annually.

Some people are lucky. Some people mysterious experience back pain, and, in a few months, the pain vanishes, never returning. Lucky dogs!

While a large percentage of people soon recover naturally from back pain, another percentage makes up 100, and these people find relief by modifying their weight, adjusting sitting arrangements, and stretching.

Still, others suffer enduring back pain. Some of these people will sit inappropriately in chairs or on couches until their lower back finally dents, forming the chair position they had to sit. These people often spend a lifetime indulging in over-the-counter meds, such as analgesics. If they would get off the couch, align the back with stretch exercises and support of Chiropractors. Thus the pain may disappear.

Still, other people suffer life-long back pain due to injuries, trauma, disease, and so on. The downside is that these people rarely get the treatment they deserve since doctors rarely recommend it. In short, doctors will often recommend over-the-counter medications, i.e., painkillers, to resolve the problem. Doctors rarely tell patients to exercise, diet, etc. Sometimes you may hear, “Lose some weight,” yet the doctor will rarely say to the patient how it is done.

Painkillers work to eliminate inflammation and sometimes pain, yet what doctors fail to tell the patients is that some painkillers are killers. In addition, painkillers do not have the same effect on all persons. For sure, some painkillers will reduce pain for some, while others may continue hurting.

This leads us to drug addictions and alcoholism since these people need help coping with the pain. If doctors are not offering that help, thus drugs and alcohol is the answer. We have another problem.

Because of the facts, back pain recoveries lay behind the information. When a patient understands what is causing his/her pain, he/she can move to treatments that help them find relief.

Fact: When a person is aware of the cause, effect, only then can he eliminate the cause. When a person is aware of the reason, he moves to acceptance; acceptance moves him to act.

How do I find the cause?

You find the cause by researching your condition. Once you begin to explore, your eyes will open, leading you to discuss your doctor and treatments to eliminate your pain. Doctors prescribe medicines, recommend tests, and encourage surgeries in some instances; thus, these people rarely focus on REAL HEALTH, which includes exercise.

Exercise has proven to reduce even the worst back pain. Exercise has gone as far as proven to prevent death from internal injuries. Most people would ordinarily die six months from internal injuries; however, one person stood against doctors and should them that exercise is the gatekeeper to good health.
