How to Deal with Chronic Back Pain

Jul 19, 2008
Back pain is a debilitating ailment that plagues millions of people around the world. Whether your back pain is mild, moderate, or serious, it is completely undesirable. Those with serious back pain would give anything to be relieved of their condition. Fortunately, there are many treatments and options out there for people with this affliction, some of which are very effective at easing the pain.

Two chief options for dealing with back pain include surgery and chiropractic therapy. Many people do not trust chiropractors, or think of them as not real doctors. However, chiropractors are experts in their field, and just as qualified to deal with problems as a back doctor. Chiropractors use therapy and massaging techniques, while back doctors are more prone to administer surgery or prescription medicines.

One should try to avoid surgery as much as possible. Although procedures are much safer today than they were decades ago, there will always be the possibility that something can go wrong. Also, having multiple surgeries is inherently bad for the human body, so it is best to steer clear of surgery if you can.

People often dismiss or give up on chiropractic therapy because it takes awhile to work, and one must follow a program at home. If you are lazy and do not adhere to the program, do not expect any results to magically appear. In fact, the majority of back surgeries could be avoided if people took the time to go to a chiropractor instead of immediately taking the surgical option. Additionally, back surgery does not always work, and can sometimes even make the problem worse.

Make sure to invest time in finding the right doctor or chiropractor. Do not just take the first one that comes along, as they may not be as qualified or efficient as one of their competitors. Look for patient, understanding physicians who charge a fair price and explain to you everything they are doing. The best way to find the perfect doctor is by asking around for referrals, or reading reviews online. As this is your health that is on the line, do not try to accelerate through this process, as the right doctor makes all the difference.

There are many prescription medicines available for people suffering from back pain, but taking the medicine may be more dangerous than the affliction itself. Over the years, thousands of people have died or been seriously hurt from the use of prescription drugs, including back pain sufferers. Unfortunately as well, these drugs only mask the pain, instead of healing your back and eliminating the pain completely. There are many books and resources available which tell you how you can heal your back pain yourself, through a variety of exercises and home remedies.

Back pain is caused by inflammation, and it is this same inflammation that prevents one's back from healing. By eating certain foods and adhering to a diet, you can reduce this inflammation and allow your back to heal on its own. There are specific foods and herbs that diminish inflammation, and when multiple ingredients are used together, they have a synergistic effect. Instead of experimenting with mixes of ingredients yourself, you can find special meals and pills that have beneficial nutrients incorporated in to them. In addition, nutritional supplements are much safer than drugs, so it is wise to take this natural route.
