Back pain is one of the most typical reasons people visit a physician. Back pain affects 8 out of 10 people, at some point in their lives. It is estimated that 80% of us will have back pain at some point. It can be short term, lasting from a couple of days to a few months, or it could be a chronic pain like arthritis.
When one suffers from back pain there are many things that can be done. A doctor can prescribe medications, surgery or physical therapy to help with relief. In most cases one of the following will happen.
* Medications help reduce the inflammation and decrease the pain and reduce the swelling and stiffness.
* Physical therapy or exercises are prescribed to help with strengthening the muscles and improving posture.
But in my experience the most effective method is not prescribed, but done naturally. It involves doing the appropriate activities on an irregular basis. Regular aerobic exercise is highly recommended to help the body with recovery.
This will help with the healing process. It will improve muscle and liver function.
Some people do not believe that they can heal themselves naturally. They believe that the body will not really heal itself naturally. This is incorrect.
Most back injuries heal within a few weeks. Most people have no pain. Just ask your doctor or pharmacist and he or she will tell you the same thing. In most cases the person does not suffer chronic pain, pain that is a few months long will heal within 6 weeks. When one suffers chronic back pain, there are many possible reasons. They are not always related to the injury. One of the causes is weak abdominal muscles.
The abdominals and hip flexors are often the cause to chronic back and hip pain. The abdominals are the muscles along the spine. The hip flexors work the hip and thigh. You can strengthen all the muscles and the hip flexors in particular are very good at strengthening the hip flexors and abdominal.
The hip flexors and abdominals are also a part of the abdominal muscles. The muscles that surround the abdomen. You should be doing the same type of exercises that you did for the hip flexors. They are similar except the hip flexors should be longer and the hip flexors should be flexed further.
You can also strengthen the hip extensors. These are the muscles on the front of the thighs and the hip. Strengthening these exercises are very good for preventing injury.
Injury can also be caused by the hamstrings and the quadriceps. These are the muscles along the back of the thighs and the buttocks. If these muscles are tight the pelvis will shift to one side. This shift can cause back pain and hip pain.
The hamstring and calf muscles and the quadriceps are often a cause to back pain and hip pain. Tightness in all these muscles cause the muscles to move too much in some cases. The hip and back pain are often related to each other. The back pain and hip pain are often a result of the muscles.
If your back or hamstring are hurts and there are other muscles that are out of position, chances are the pelvis is going to shift into a wrong position. The pelvis is going to move to the side. The hip pain and back pain are related. The pain can also cause a pinched nerve. When this occurs, the nerve does not receive all the nutrients that it needs. The nerve will go into pain. When this happens, the person will not be able to walk or stand for a long time. Some people will have pain only when they move the knee.
The pain causes the person to be unable to sit on chairs to sleep. They will be unable to sleep on their back. When this occurs, they will have to put pillows under their knees. There is a way to find relief. This method is very easy to learn. It is simple to do at home for yourself. This will take about 15 minutes of work each day of your busy week.
