6 COMMON 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 always ‘need’ manipulation to go back in. Typically a tight muscles makes us feel like our backs are “out” and joints can get really stiff. Stiff joints can definately effect our movement. Simple exercises are normally enough to relieve this sensation. In some cases manipulation is needed.
MYTH # 2
Backs are weak
Many people believe that the back is weak and is susceptible to damage. This is NOT true. Our spines are incredibly strong and resilient. These structures 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 height means that my back is weak and will always be painful
“. This is another myth. Did you know that common imaging of spines do not equal pain or dysfunction. This means that things like disk space narrowing, disk herniations, and severity of arthritis does NOT equal pain.
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 and pelvis. This allows for decrease in pain and gets people returning to the activities they enjoy.
Stretches cure back pain
Stretches are a helpful way to help ease back pain. However, stretches are not the ‘cure’. Best evidence suggests exercise is KING. All kinds including strength, walking, and activities prove more effective than stretching. Also, stretches will not prevent back pain. Exercises are more “preventative” and likely to help you recover from a back injury if you continue 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 “episodes” can be normal occurrences and pain will usually subside. Usually time will help you recover. There is no prevention for this. Although core exercises are not the only prevention, they can very helpful. Generally speaking, a well balanced lifestyle that includes activity is preventative for recovering from a back pain episode.
