My favorite part about my line of work is helping to empower clients and put them in control of the way their body feels. There are a lot of negative and conflicting messages out there in the health, wellness, and medical world, and I enjoy helping clients cut through the confusion and get to the facts. Having said that, here’s 3 empowering facts that can help you to understand and overcome your back pain.
1. You can still live an active, pain free life, even if you’ve been told you have a disc issue.
Structural injury or pathology (this means things like disc degeneration, herniated discs, bulging discs, etc.) are only responsible for about 10% of persistent back pains. This means that in 90% of cases, the conditions listed above are not what’s TRULY causing your back pain. So, if you’ve received some sort of ‘disc diagnosis,’ that’s not necessarily a reason to live in fear or anxiety – you can still live an active, pain free life.
2. Small lifestyle changes can make your back pain start to feel better.
This means that you, without necessarily having to see me or another therapist, have the power and the tools to start making your back pain feel a little better. Sleeping 7-9 hours/night, staying active, eating healthy, and quitting or limiting smoking can all start making back pain feel better.
3. Believing that your back is strong and designed to move can start to make you feel better.
Simply having positive beliefs about your back pain can help you to start feeling better. If you feel yourself starting to worry or become anxious about back pain, remember – your body is strong, resilient, and designed to move. Convince yourself that it will be OK and try not to let your back pain limit your movement too much. For instance, if twisting and turning has bothered your back in the past, start with a few slight, slow turns to each side. Make this movement so small that it couldn't possibly cause any pain. Then, slowly increase how far you turn until you feel safe in a fuller range of motion.
No matter how long you’ve had back pain or how bad it is, I believe in you. I believe that you can overcome the condition and get back to the active lifestyle you love.
