6 myths About Back Pain.

Myth # 1 
You back goes “out” of alignment and needs manipulation
This is simply not true. If a back goes “out’of alignment this is a serious medical condition. Backs do not need manipulation to go back in. Typically a tight muscles makes us feel like our backs are “out”. Other times, stiff joints can affect our movement. Simple exercises are normally enough to relieve this sensation

Myth # 2
Backs are weak
Many people believe that the back is weak and is susceptible to damage. This is in fact not true. Our backs are incredibly strong and resilient. Our backs are able to support our bodies through many different forces and movements. The back can recover from significant trauma such as blows, falls, accidents, and disk herniations.

Myth # 3
Diagnostic Imaging tells all
Disk bulges and loss of disk space means that my back is weak and will always be painful. This is another common myth. Did you know that images of our spines do not equal pain or dysfunction. This means that things like disk space narrowing, disk herniations, arthritis don’t equal pain. Many of our patients will show different things in their imaging. This imaging never lines up with pain and does not effect prognosis.

Myth # 4
Chronic Back pain can’t get better
This is entirely not true. Many patients with chronic back pain learn how to increase mobility and strength in their spines. This allows for decrease in pain and allows patients to return to doing the things they love.

Myth #5
Stretches cure back pain
Stretches are a helpful way to help ease back pain. However, stretches are not the cure. Best available evidence suggests exercise. All kinds including strength, walking, and activities are more important than stretching. Stretches will not prevent back pain. Exercises are more “preventative” and likely to help you recover from a back injury if you continued to build strength and resilience.

Myth # 6
You can prevent back pain with core exercises
Back pain is very common. And occurs for a variety of reasons. Back pain can happen even with small tasks like picking up something from the ground. These are normal occurrences and pain will usually subside. Back pain is actually normal and many patients have felt and recovered from a back pain episode. Usually just time will help you recover. There is no prevention for this. Core exercises are not the prevention but can be helpful. Generally speaking, a well balanced lifestyle that includes activity is preventative for recovering from a back pain episode.
