Back Pain Lower Back

Aug 10, 2008
At some point, in one in every three adults worldwide suffers back pain, particularly lower back pain. This is a chilling statistic when looked upon in the light of the devastation that back pain can cause. Importantly, when we take any cursory glance at the human skeletal system, we soon discover that the thickness of each vertebrae decreases as the spine descends.

The spine must be maintained in quality condition for it to not only survive but to perform effectively, and given that the major load-bearing spinal region extends from below the ribcage to the pelvic crest, it is also responsible for the throughput of every nerve message that is conveyed to and from the buttocks, legs and feet. Once we embrace the enormity of the numerous tasks the lumbar spine must repeatedly perform, we begin to also embrace why effective maintenance is essential.

Lower back pain is so often accompanied by spinal degeneration, where the individual vertebra and intervertebral discs become significantly compressed. For any lower back pain regime to possibly be effective at reducing lower back pain, the regime must achieve spinal de-compression as well as addressing another three vital elements necessary for recovery.

The three vital elements are, in no particular order; 1) restoration of symmetry within the body, 2) restoration of elasticity within the soft tissue surrounding and supporting the spine, and 3) restoration of specific spinal support strength.

It is crucial to understand that if the lower back structure remains compressed because of various weight-bearing activities, the potential to recover from the pain remains extremely limited with the exception of course of the dubious philosophy of masking the pain by means of potent medication.

Even when the effects of spinal compression have had irreversible consequences, the human spine possesses an impressive capacity to recover in an environment of consistent de-compression, as well as its ability to perform effectively provided the de-compression is routinely and systematically performed.

Sufferers so often refrain from at least one of the 3 movement functions; lateral rotation, lateral flexion, and mid-line flexion/extension due to painful experiences in attempting the function/s, however within an appropriate regime, the essential movement functions can significantly and necessarily be restored. All are significantly impaired by lumbar spine compression, and it is important to know that effective restoration of these three movement functions is pivotal to the sufferer's recovery.

There are enormous benefits to be gained by de-compressing the spine each day before weight is applied to the lower back, and it is fundamental to embrace the fact that this can only be achieved via a protocol that respects the inherent spinal complexities, yet done in a simple and workable way within the lifestyle and timeframe of the sufferer. This can be achieved, on average, in 15 minutes per day, much of which is necessarily done prior to the spine becoming weight-bearing for the day.
