Low back pain is one of the most common ailments suffered by the general population. In fact, it is the #1 work injury and cause of time off work.
Sadly, all too many people ignore their pain by either taking medication to hide the pain or just “work through it” because it’s just temporary and it’ll go away.
Problem with these approaches…
- Ignoring the pain and working through it only creates more damage
- Although the pain may eventually go away, the problem with the spine doesn’t and so deterioration occurs.
So either way, the common resulting factor is that further damage and harm will follow.
What is essential when dealing with back pain is to address the source of your pain. That is to say, you must address the structural issues (i.e. the spine and surrounding musculature) that has caused your pain.
If you don’t, not only will you experience recurring pain but your pain will become more frequent and ultimately constant worsening pain.
