Chronic Back Pain
When you have experienced back pain for longer than three months, or if it keeps coming back repeatedly over the course of several months, you may be experiencing chronic back pain. If you are constantly in pain you are not living your life to the fullest and it can make doing the simplest tasks seem impossible. Staying happy can seem impossible when all of your focus is on your painful back. If you are not thrilled by the idea of taking medications multiple times a day, you might be excited to learn that there is an all-natural and drug free treatment option to help relieve your chronic back pain.
What are the Causes of Your Chronic Back Pain?
Most of the time when chronic back pain is experienced, the pain is felt in the lower back rather than the upper portion of the back. In these cases there is normally one of two things that happen: the discs that exist between the bones in the spine become worn out or bulge, or the joints in the spine fail to work correctly. When either of these things happen pressure can be put on the nerves surrounding the spine and cause pain. There are about 50 various nerves that exist around the spine and when friction irritates these nerves the pain also is experienced in other parts of the body that are connected to this same nerve. When you experience pain your body is trying to tell you that something is wrong, so listen to it!
Fortunately for you, your body is incredibly adaptable and is able to adapt to all of the different stresses that experience daily. We all experience physical, chemical, and emotional stresses that can lead to a poor diet, poor posture, and a sedentary lifestyle. After a while, we rely too much on our body’s ability to adapt and eventually we reach our limit – our body can no longer adapt and we experience pain. Something that we normally do every day will cause us pain unexpectedly. You might attempt to ignore the pain for a while, however, when the pain doesn’t go away it becomes a nuisance. When you don’t address the source of this pain, the pain can last for a long time.
Treatment Options for Chronic Back Pain
Traditional treatment options for chronic back pain focus on managing the pain, not treating the source of the pain. Some common pain management options might include physical therapy, surgery, hot and cold alternating therapy, and pain medications. None of these treatments address the source of your pain and only provide you with some temporary relief for your chronic back pain symptoms.
