Although 80% of people will experience back pain at some time or the other, not everyone will seek help for their problems. Even some people who suffer from chronic back pain will choose to ignore their symptoms, in the hope that they will eventually go away. But according to our London chiropractor at MotionBack, ignoring back pain is always a bad idea.
There are many possible causes for acute and chronic back pain. These include a disorder in the functioning of spinal structures (such as muscle strain or problems with the intervertebral discs) and ailments such as kidney stones, disc prolapse, and osteoarthritis. Sometimes, the cause of back pain may be down to something as simple as sitting on the wrong kind of chair or sleeping on the wrong kind of mattress.
The important thing to understand is that identifying the cause of your back pain is the key to effective treatment. A better understanding of the cause also helps in a faster recovery time and better pain management.
Don’t turn your back on pain.
