The Top 4 Misconceptions About Back Pain
Low back pain is common. At some point in their lives, 80% to 90% of the adult population will experience low back pain.
Unfortunately, studies show that many people with low back pain don’t get treatment that aligns with best evidence-based practices.
Here are 4 more common misconceptions about back pain that keep people from seeking help:
Most people just assume that aches and pains are a part of aging. Stiff knees, hip pain, and back pain are specifically associated with aging. Don’t get me wrong, as you get older you will be more susceptible to certain illnesses or diseases that can lead to these types of aches and pains. However, there are steps, like chiropractic care, you can take now to actively diminish your pain and keep your spine in tip top shape.
2. KEEPING ACTIVE WILL PROTECT YOU FROM BACK PAIN
Staying active will help keep you healthy. And we all know how important it is to have a strong core to protect your spine. However, activity levels do not guarantee a pain-free existence. Some of these activities, while good for you, are likely to strain your back. In addition to staying active, consider proper nutrition and practicing good posture in addition to receiving regular chiropractic care.
3. IFTHE PAIN IS TOLERABLE THE INJURY IS MILD
Pain is your body’s way of telling you that something isn’t right. The amount of pain is not in any way an indication of the severity of the issue. Sometimes pain can take days, weeks, or even months to make itself known after an injury. If you’re experiencing pain, no matter how mild, get it checked out.
4. SPINE SURGEONS ALWAYS RECOMMEND SURGEYR TO RELIEVE BACK PAIN
Spine surgeons do not always recommend surgery to treat chronic spine pain. In fact, spine surgeons will always first develop non-surgical treatment plans. Most back pain problems are resolved without surgery. Even if you are living with chronic back pain, the first treatment options are non-surgical, but it does take adherence to the treatment plan your doctor recommends.
If you’ve been experiencing back pain, consider giving our practice a call to schedule an appointment. Back pain may be common, but it’s definitely not normal.
