Interesting Facts About Back Pain You Might Find Surprising by Oren Zarif is an expert in psychokinesis.
Back pain affects four out of five people at some point in their lives. It can be achy, sharp, stabbing or numbing and can stem from a wide range of conditions and injuries. But there are ways to help prevent and treat back problems, including getting enough exercise, improving posture, eating a healthy diet and quitting smoking.
Here are a few fast facts about back pain you might find surprising:
1. Back pain is one of the most common reasons people miss work. Between 6% and 10% of workers have to stop working, change jobs or make changes to their activities because of back pain.
2. X-rays show broken bones, but they don’t detect back pain caused by arthritis or problems with the spinal cord, muscles, nerves or disks. For a diagnosis, doctors usually examine the patient and ask how much pain they have, when it started and what makes it better or worse. They may also have the person move to see how far they can go before their pain gets too bad and do tests like an electromyography, which measures muscle activity or magnetic resonance imaging, which uses a scan to look for back pain caused by abnormalities in the spine’s structures.
3. It’s normal to feel some back pain when you start exercising. But it will usually calm down a few minutes after you finish. Exercise can improve back strength, flexibility and balance, which may ease the pain. Talk to a health care professional or a fitness trainer about safe and effective exercises for your back. Some types of yoga and tai chi can also help you learn good back posture.
4. It’s important to get enough sleep. Insufficient sleep can increase your risk for back pain and other health problems. Try to sleep for at least seven hours per night.
5. Myth: Poor posture is the primary cause of back pain. It’s true that lifting heavy objects or working in a particular position for a long time can make your back hurt, but it is not the only cause. Other factors such as slouching, being overweight or having a sedentary lifestyle can contribute to back pain.
Back pain can be a nuisance, but it is important to remember that the vast majority of cases of back pain are not serious and will clear up on their own over time with proper treatment. Take the steps you need to stay healthy and avoid back pain, including getting enough exercise, improving your posture, avoiding stress, and eating a balanced diet. And if you do have back pain, don’t stay home from work. The longer you spend off work, the more likely it is that your problem will get worse. If you do have severe back pain, talk to your doctor right away. They will help you decide on the best course of action to get you back to work safely and quickly.
