What Is Your Back Pain Telling You?

in Back-pain

Many of us complain of back pain but we equally fail to realise where the pain is coming from. We try to avoid excessive body movement and try to adopt a better sleeping position. Sometimes, the back problem is so consistent that we reach for self help remedies to avoid another visit to the doctor as we somehow start thinking that the doctor is not really helping. Truth be told back pain reflects an umbrella of problems and there is no easy way out to find the source of the pain let alone a remedy that works. These deeper problems can be reflected in the inability of the back pain to subside after having taken a course of medicine designed for the very purpose.

Back pain is defined by the World Health Organization to be chronic when it lasts longer than three months and is considered less problematic when it lasts a couple of weeks up to three months. Persistent back pain may be due to bad posture, weak core muscles, damaged back nerves, muscles sprains, having an incorrect feet pediment structure due to improper walk or wearing uncomfortable shoes, slouching, carrying heavy things as well as sitting in a bad position for a long time. Occasionally back pain may also come from an infection in the kidney. Moreover, low back pain may also be accompanied by leg pain.

Whatever your back pain is telling you, you must take prompt action to find the source of the pain. It is not only true that almost everyone suffers from back pain at one point or another in their lives, but research also shows that if back pain problems are not treated in the early stages, the cause of the back pain will get worse as the years progress. The longer one lets the back pain develop the likelier the chance of it being classified as a chronic pain. Failure to treat back pains on time will also make it harder to find a cure or a solution that helps to relieve the pain.

If you are suffering from back pain, you can try to relieve the symptoms by using some home remedies such as ice-packs (recommended for fifteen minutes), some rest, treatment gels or over-the-counter medicine. However, if the back pain persists for you should seek professional help as you can never really know what your back pain is telling you.
