Stop Blaming Your Back For Your Back Pain

Are you one of the millions of people around the world suffering from back pain? Do you toss and turn trying to find a comfortable position to sleep in? Does your aching pain keep you from enjoying the activities you love? Does a stiff, sore back interfere with your work or social life?

You are not alone. Research shows that up to 85 % of people will experience back pain at some point in their lives. And it can strike at any age. Did you know that back pain is the most frequent cause of activity limitation in people under the age of 45? When nagging pain doesn’t go away, it restricts more than your daily activities; it can also lead to psychological distress and make you feel angry, depressed, or worthless.

If you are finding difficult to solve your pain even after some visits to doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, pain specialists, orthopedic surgeons, pricy gadgets that promise relief: ergonomic chairs, pillows, beds, braces, heating pads, ice packs, and more, then I may have a solution for your problem.

Many people mistakenly assume if they have pain in their back, then they must have a back problem. But the fact is, the culprit behind your back pain may be lurking somewhere else in your body so you need to stop blaming it! Think of your body like a major corporation with thousands of employees. All your employees work in specific departments and have specific jobs. But when any one of your body’s employees takes a sick day, goes on vacation, or just goes to sleep on the job, other workers have to pitch in to get the job done. And that can stretch them beyond their capabilities and cause them stress and strain, in addition to distracting them from their own job. When some employees are doing double duty, it leads to inefficiencies, not only in that area, but also in other parts of the body.

Because back pain may be a symptom of dysfunction throughout the body, you can’t just massage the painful area on your back and expect to solve the problem. If that is all you do, the pain will keep coming back. I guarantee it.

When your bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia are working the way they are intended to work, you will experience the joy of pain-free movement. No more waking up feeling creaky and stiff, no more shifting endlessly in your chair to avoid the shooting pain down your leg, no more dreading social occasions where you have to stand around for hours, and no more avoiding the activities you love.
