Back pain is blamed, generally for poor muscle tone
especially on the affected area. Overall, 90% of chronic back pain
sufferers are individuals (professionals, housewives, students…) that
seldom see an exercise regimen. And the other 10% have the condition due
to injury such as ripped muscles.
If you have
back pain, you are not alone. Back pain the one of the most common
neurological complaint that physicians diagnose in the United States,
next to headache. So it’s no cause to fret if you have one. And no, most
back pain is not always associated with age (though age DOES have an
effect on back pain), instead it is the lack of physical activity and
deficiency in liquid intake.
Defining the pain is important in
order to control it. And for purposes of our definition, we categorize
back pain into three categories. We have the Acute Back Pain, Chronic
Back Pain, and the Neuropathic Back Pain. Acute back pain is a common
type of pain that is directly related to a damage tissue. It is
experienced immediately, characterized by sharp, biting pain of a
damaged tissue. It is generally accepted that acute back pain lasts less
than 3 months if left untreated.
If the pain persists longer after it
has been healed or treated then it falls now under the classification of
chronic back pain. Chronic back pain falls into two sub categories: pain
with an identifiable pain generator and pain without an identifiable
pain generator. The former obviously has a cause, such as: degenerative
disc disease, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis and other spinal
structure problems due to injury. The latter is more a disease rather
than a symptom of an injury. And for purposes
As long as you have
no serious physical injury or occurring illness, chronic back pain
relief is very achievable. It’s all in the problem approach. First thing
is identifying the problem. Was it just stress or a serious defunct?
Don’t be hasty in dismissing it as stress. Look for other telltale
signs. Are you having fever? Are other parts of your body hurting? If
so, then look for other signs. Common culprits are appendicitis,
hepatitis and gastrointestinal complications. Next is identifying the
pain type. Is it muscular or structural? Structural poses a difficult
situation, you may have herniated discs. If muscular, ripped muscle is
common but usually harmless cause.
Doing Tai Chi is one effective
chronic back pain relief. It promotes good posture and the meditation
improves your ability to withstand the pain. If done regularly, these
exercises would equate doing a good aerobic exercise with also eases bad
backs. Bending exercises also helps in chronic back pain relief though
somewhat lesser in efficiency.Alternately, you could purchase a back
pain machine. The TENS machine is surprisingly an effective chronic back
pain relief and it is handy, portable, and quite cheap.
word, I would suggest using a TENS machine for immediate chronic back
pain relief and Tai Chi for the long lasting prevention for back pain.
