Do you suffer from back pain?

Hello Everyone,

Today I want to discuss back pain, almost everyone experiences back pain, some experience chronic back pain. Completing simple tasks, lifting, and simple movements is extremely difficult and painful if you suffer from chronic back pain. Individuals that have never suffered from back pain have no idea how blessed they are taking life for granted and forgetting about people with mobility challenges. I would like to take a pro-active approach towards raising awareness on the topic of different levels of pain, specifically back pain.

My neighbor suffers from muscle spasms that contribute to her back pain. Our back bears most of the weight of the body therefore any strained muscles and prolonged pressure on the joints and ligaments often causes pain in this part of the body. Back pain can occur due to stress, kidney stones, muscle spasms, bones fractures, and many other reasons. The intense pain in the back spreading down the legs causing tingling and numbness on other parts of the body can be crippling.

The general health and physical function of patients with chronic back pain makes it difficult to live an active lifestyle. People suffering from back pain experience different levels of pain depending on the type of injury that occurred. Once you learn and understand the underlying cause of back pain, you can seek the proper treatment. There are many types of problems that can cause back pain consider grabbing a copy of the back pain book, and learn about different ways of dealing with back pain. The best way to help yourself and others is by seeking knowledge and discovering alternative treatments for the cause of pain, whether it is physical or mental.

I hope and pray you have a pain and fatigue free day.

Hi Viv,
Driving home a fair few miles the other day, and when I got out the car I got a persistent twinge in my lower back - a rare occurence for me but it really made me think about what it's like to suffer far worse pain , on a constant basis - some very good advice here
