A person who has not suffered from back pain will never understand how serious this malady is. But, believe me, back pain almost cripples you. For almost every movement of your body you have to move your back. And if the back is itself in pain then all body movements become intensely painful.
Back pain usually starts with signals or indicators. For instance, if your back hurt at one time and stopped, and later it started again, you received your indicator at the start. The first time your back started hurting is the sign. You have to pinpoint when the first pain started. Once you pinpoint the starting date, you have to analyze what triggered your back pain. For instance, did you fall? Or were you hurt in a motor accident? Once you find the trigger of your back pain, you have to consider the symptoms, location and nature of the pain, all of which together will indicate its remedy.
Back Pain and Diagnosis
Do you know that many doctors miss areas of concern that could lead to its cure? Back pain is common, yet many doctors fail to see the cause. The answer is simple. The reason is most medical doctors have little experience in the system of healing so to speak. Rather many doctors focus on prescribing medicines and searching for answers, which many times rest in front of them. Don’t get me wrong, good doctors reach everywhere, yet these people lack educational knowledge of the spinal column, central nervous system and so on. Also, these people fail to see that many causes of back pain rests in misaligned bones, or spine.
There are some causes about whom we are blissfully unaware. But they also are often the reason behind back pain. For example, wearing inappropriate shoes could cause the back to feel stressed. If you wear unsuitable fitting shoes, be prepared to suffer from feet and back pain. Also, loosing weight could sometimes reduce back pain. Obesity is spreading throughout the world and in every corner, thus adding pressure to the muscles, which lead to back pain.
Common Methods for Treating Back Pain
If your back pain does not require medical attention, i.e. if you feel you over exerted the muscles you can perform a few actions at home to relieve your pain. The common treatments include bed rest, pain remedies, cold or hot pads, massage, relaxation, and so on. Sometimes when we pull the muscles pain relievers like ibuprofen, aspirin, or those with acetaminophen included can help reduce the pain. Cold packs work well, yet if you have conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis or related symptoms you should avoid using cold packs. Leave the cold pack on the area where your pain is for at least twenty minutes to reduce muscle spasms, pain, or inflammation. Later you can apply hot packs to the area again for twenty minutes. Avoid placing hot packs over areas where scar tissue is present or where you have poor circulation. If you muscles are tight, you may benefit from a massage. However, if the massage increases your pain, stop immediately and seek medical help.
All the above will help you in reducing the pain. But if you want to get rid of the malady, then you have to look elsewhere.
