How To Effectively Deal With Backache

Almost every person has at one point in their life had to deal with back pain, or personally know someone who is suffering from back pain. That statement is frighteningly true as experts estimate that up to 80% of the population will experience back pain at some point in their lives. Back pain does not discriminate among the young and old, and in many cases seemingly trivial tasks tend to be the cause.

Back pain can be managed in simple yet effective ways, and most people recover but do complain about reoccurring pains.

Luckily, most back pains are not caused by serious conditions and with the proper attitude and armed with proper knowledge and tools you can say good-bye to your back aching days.

Why Do You Experience Backache?

Back pain is most common in lower (lumbar) region of the spine which makes sense because our entire upper body is supported by it.

Sometimes due to external factors or just normal wear and tear, which occur in old age, the spine may deform or change its shape. The spine has a very peculiar S shape which nature has perfected over the millions of years of evolution. When the shape gets altered that’s when things start to go bad. Let’s take a look at a few examples and see how spine deformation may lead to back pain.

  • Sciatica is a common problem caused by spinal compression. When the spine is put under extra pressure the spine gets squashed. This leads to shortening of the spine. As a result, the pressure can then affect the sciatic nerve and trigger pain sensations.
  • Disc herniation is another problem caused by spinal deformity. When a disc in the spine bulges out, it irritates the surrounding area, and it may even pinch a nerve (such as the sciatic nerve). This causes further discomfort to an already irritated area, and can trigger pain signals.
  • Scoliosis is another spinal deformity that can lead to pain. It is characterised by a sideward curvature of the spine.

Whenever you feel back pain, it is recommended that you pay a visit to your doctor. After all he/she is the most experienced person to help you and provide you with health information and medical advice. However, there are a few more alternatives and treatment options you could choose from. These include:

  • As previously mentioned, because in many cases back pain is not caused by anything serious, it has the potential to go away on its own, without needing any form of treatment. It may, however, require a short period of rest to allow your spine to recover.
  • Apply a heat or ice. A heating pad applied locally helps blood flowing to that particular site, while an ice pack can help reduce inflammation.
  • Physical therapy and spinal mobilisation to increase the flexibility and range of motion of your spine in order to reduce pain and stiffness.
  • Physical activity in general is great for your spinal health as it keeps not just your spine, but your entire body in shape.
  • Stretch and strengthen your back. Stretching contributes to a more flexible (and thus less stiff) spine, while strengthening your back and core muscles helps reduce the stress that your spine has to bear on a daily basis.
  • Practice good posture. Whether your are sitting down, laying down to sleep, or engaging in heavy lifting, having proper posture is a great way to not only reduce pain, but to also prevent back pain. For instance, minding your posture while you sleep can be highly beneficial, as certain sleeping positions can make the pain worse.
  • Use a spinal decompression device to correct one of the most prevalent underlying spinal problems – spinal compression.

Backrack - The Easiest Way To Deal With Back Pain!

The Backrack is a 100% natural and non-invasive orthopaedic spinal decompression device carefully engineered by top spine specialists from the Harley Street, London. It is free from any side-effects and provides long-term pain relief across the entire spine. Thousands of people have already seen its benefits, so why not be one of them?

How Can the Backrack Help Me Obtain Pain Relief?

The Backrack is a device that provides spinal decompression therapy, a treatment modality that stretches out your spine to correct an abnormality that resulted in the shortening of your spine and compression of various components of the spine. This abnormality is called spinal compression.

By correcting this change in the shape and length of the spine, the pain, regardless of where it is located along the back, can be treated and prevented from returning, as the source of the problem is being addressed.

To obtain relief from back, neck, hip, leg, arm pain (even chronic back pain and headaches), patients are advised to lie down on the device to perform a few specially designed exercises using the Backrack.

As you move, the nodules on the rack massage your back and gently push your vertebrae back into their original place. Gradually, with repeated use, your spine will decompress (and stay decompressed provided that you keep using the device) and your pain will no longer be triggered.

The beauty of the Backrack device is that it is 100% natural as it only uses your own body weight to treat your spinal problem, and as such it is way better than using over the counter pain relievers, muscle relaxants and etc.
