    Don’t let your back pain limit you

    If you’re suffering from back pain, you are not alone. Nine out of 10 American adults will experience back pain in their lives, making it the 5th most common cause for visits to the doctor. In fact, it is a leading cause of disability worldwide.

    Fortunately, you can take measures to prevent or relieve most back pain and surgery is rarely necessary. With the right approach most back pain usually gets better within a few days or weeks.

    The types of back pain people have can be quite different, from a persistent dull ache to sudden sharp pain. The cause of pain can be from a sprain, fracture, or other injury, but it can also stem from a disease or medical condition, such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, or spinal stenosis (a narrowing of the spinal canal through which the spinal cord runs). Many people develop back pain in part because they’re overweight or their lifestyle is too sedentary.

    Implications of Not Treating Back Pain

    Ignoring back pain, often perceived as ‘toughing it out,’ can exacerbate the condition rather than resolve it.

    Leaving back pain untreated can disrupt your ability to find a comfortable sleeping position, leading to poor sleep quality. It’s well-known that inadequate sleep negatively impacts overall health, affecting mood, concentration, and physical condition. Therefore, addressing your back pain is essential for your overall well-being.

    Prolonged back pain often results in altered movement patterns, inadvertently straining other parts of the back and body. It’s not uncommon for pain in one area to cause additional or intensified pain elsewhere, particularly in the back.

    According to the Cleveland Clinic, about 50% of individuals with chronic pain also experience anxiety or depression. Chronic back pain can leave you feeling powerless, devalued, and sleep-deprived, with the interplay between back pain and depression exacerbating both conditions.

    This underscores the importance of regaining your health. Contact us today for a free consultation.
