I've receive many phone calls like this....Does this sound like you?
You woke up to searing lower back pain that makes the idea of getting out of bed unbearable. As you lay in bed trying to figure out what you could have possibly done to hurt yourself this badly. While also trying to stop the crazy images of x-rays, MRIs, injections, surgery and wheelchairs from going through your mind. Eventually, you work up enough courage to try and sit up. Once you are up you have a severe back ache that feels better if you stand versus sitting. Your backache gets worse when you stand for a long time, or sit for a long time or sit on your couch at all. Everything you do throughout the day is determined by how you think your back will respond. It's exhausting and overwhelming.
The good news is that back pain doesn't have to continue to run your life. I help active adult overcome back pain to get back to living their best life.
Here is the truth about back pain. Whether we are talking about a mild backache or severe back pain the way you move has a direct relationship to how your back feels.
Here's what I mean.
Your spine is made up of a lot of little bones that are connected by muscles. When muscles are tense they pull on these bones, squishing everything in the middle. Under normal situations this squish and relax motion is how your spine gets nutrition. Nutrients are pushed and pulled into the the disc between the bones keeping them healthy.
The problem is that we sit for extended periods of time, squishing the discs for hours every day over years. The stress on the disc and bones adds up causing the muscles around the discs to constantly be “on” ie constantly pulling so they loose the ability to relax. The constant tension makes seemingly small tasks like pick up light weight items off the floor or simply holding your body upright very painful.
This was my long winded way of saying that for most people it's not one event that caused you to wake up with severe low back pain it was several small events over a long time.
