10 Facts To Know About Back Pain
ℹ️ℹ️
Low Back Pain (LBP) is a leading cause of disability worldwide!
ℹ️
There are many myths around LBP.
ℹ️
Accurate knowledge around back pain can help to manage pain, disability, days off work, and the rehab process. .
❌❌❌❌
10 Unhelpful MYTHS:
1. LBP is usually a serious medical condition.
2. LBP will become persistent and deteriorate in later life.
3. Persistent LBP is always related to tissue damage.
4. Scans are always needed to detect the cause of LBP.
5. Pain related to exercise and movement is always a warning that harm is being done to the spine.
6. LBP is caused by poor posture when sitting, standing and lifting.
7. LBP is caused by weak 'core' muscles; a strong core protects against future LBP.
8. Repeated spinal loading results in ‘wear and tear’ and tissue damage.
9. Pain flare-ups are a sign of tissue damage and require rest.
10. Treatments such as strong medications, injections and surgery are effective, and necessary, to treat LBP.
✅✅✅✅
10 Helpful FACTS!
1. LBP is not a serious life threatening medical condition.
2. Most episodes of LBP improve and doesn’t get worse as we age.
3. A negative mindset, fear avoidance, negative recovery expectations, and poor pain coping behaviors are more strongly associated with persistent pain than is tissue damage.
4. Scans do not determine prognosis, the likelihood of disability, or clinical outcomes of LBP.
5. Graduated exercise and movement in all directions is safe and healthy for the spine.
6. Spine posture during sitting, standing and lifting does not predict LBP or its persistence.
7. A weak core does not cause LBP.
8. Graded Spine movement and loading is safe and builds structural resilience.
9. Pain flare-ups are more related to changes in activity, stress and mood rather than structural damage.
10. Effective care for LBP is relatively cheap and safe. This includes: education that is patient-centered, fosters a positive mindset, and optimizes physical and mental health.

    Just because you sit, doesn’t mean you will get back pain. It’s about tissue capacity and duration.

    11. Your lower back pain symptoms have to correlate with the findings of your diagnostic test to determine the cause of pain 12. Injections and medications are to widely depended on and sometimes you just have to commit and do the work and implement change to get better.

    This term “back pain” should not exist, should not be used to explain a variety of issues. Go to the doctor and learn exactly where the issue is, L3, L4 in my care. Learn what to do when stifness happens, learn what to do when numbness happens. Learn rehab and prehab exercises. Know your limits. Go live a pain free, fully functional life

    Sitting slumped all day or in a hip flexed position for prolonged periods repetitively will cause back pain eventually.

    Myths #6 & #7 I've heard many times as fact! I'd love to hear more about why those are not true. Any explanation someone could give? Or research you could direct me to?
