Patients who suffer from chronic back pain are looking for a more safe and superior way to alleviate pain. Studies show that back pain is the leading cause of disabilities for individuals. Those with disabilities are usually burdened with medical expenses and are limited in doing certain tasks. Even if they have some mobility the movement could be very uncomfortable.
Causes of Chronic Back Pain
Chronic back pain can be caused by a car accident, a work injury, sciatica, obesity, sleeping improperly, arthritis, sports injuries, and health related issues. Did you know that fifty percent of Americans suffer from chronic back pain each year? A common cause of chronic back pain that may be surprising is smoking. Studies also have shown that smokers are at a higher risk of developing chronic back pain. Smoking damages tissue in the back which leads to poor circulation. The nutrients that are needed to flow to the joints and muscles in the back become reduced. Depression and anxiety are mental health conditions that cause back pain and also lead some people to smoke. Low bone density develops and the bones become weak when smoking occurs. The person who smokes is also at risk for developing osteoporosis and bone fractures.
Preventing Chronic Back Pain
Any acute back pain that has never been diagnosed and treated can lead to chronic back pain. Back pain that lasts more than six weeks is considered acute back pain. The sudden pain that comes and persists even for a few days needs to be treated. It is during this time that it is best to visit the chiropractor. The back pain could be an indication of another medical condition in the body. There are many ways to prevent chronic back pain that include:
Having the proper posture while working
Maintaining a healthy body weight
Doing exercises that strengthen your back
Reducing the stress in your life
