Back Pain

Wherever the pain is located – lower left back pain, lower right back pain, upper back pain or all of the above – almost everyone has experienced pain in the back of the body at some point in their lives. This frequent form of pain is a leading cause of disability in the world and is one of the most common reasons people visit a doctor or miss work.

The good news is that you can usually prevent or treat most pain episodes. When prevention fails, home treatment and proper body mechanics can often heal your back within a few weeks and keep it functioning.

From muscle aches to a burning, stabbing or shooting sensation, upper or lower back pain can be anything from mild to chronic. Additionally, you may experience pain that radiates down your leg or worsens with bending, twisting, lifting, walking, or standing.

Often, pain develops without a clear cause that your doctor can pinpoint using a test or imaging study. There are several conditions that commonly cause pain in the back, including:

  • Muscle strains and ligament sprains. Heavy lifting or sudden awkward movements can strain the muscles and ligaments of the back. A poor physical condition can cause constant strain on your back, resulting in painful muscle spasms.
  • Ruptured or bulging disks. In your spine, disks act as cushions between the vertebrae. It is possible for a disk’s soft material to bulge or rupture and cause a nerve to be compressed. You can, however, have a bulging or ruptured disk without experiencing pain.
  • Arthritis. Pain can often be caused by osteoarthritis. An arthritic condition known as spinal stenosis occurs when the space of the spinal cord narrows as a result of arthritis.
  • Osteoporosis. If your bones become porous and brittle, your spine’s vertebrae may suffer painful fractures.
Pain in the back can affect anyone, even children and teens. Here are some factors that may make you more likely to suffer from it:
  • Older age. This form of pain becomes more common as you age, beginning around age 30 or 40.
  • An inactive lifestyle. Pain may result from weak, unused muscles in your back and abdomen.
  • Being overweight. Excess weight puts additional strain on your back.
  • Diseases. Arthritis and cancer can cause pain.
    Improper lifting. Using your back instead of your legs can cause pain.
  • Psychological conditions. The risk of pain appears to be higher among those with depression and anxiety.
  • Smoking. Smokers are more likely to suffer from pain. In some cases, smoking may lead to herniated disks due to increased coughing. Furthermore, smoking reduces blood flow to the spine and increases the risk of osteoporosis.

Treatment for Upper and Lower Back Pain Relief

Acousana therapy is a highly effective, non-invasive approach to treating mild to severe pain with success rates over 86%.

Acousana utilizes patented SoftWave® technology to stimulate your body’s natural healing response by increasing blood flow by up to 300%, quickly reducing inflammation and therefore, getting rid of the pain associated with the condition.

Acousana therapy uses patented electrohydraulic SoftWaves® that are delivered through the skin using ultrasound gel. The SoftWaves trigger a natural biological response which initiates a healing process by increasing blood flow and improving circulation.

The SoftWaves “fool” the body into thinking that “damage” has occurred, when in reality, no damage has taken place. This response initiates your body’s natural self-repair process by reducing inflammation and thereby eliminating pain.

Bridges
 

In bridges, a person contracts their gluteus maximus, the largest muscle in their buttocks. This muscle is primarily used when people bend into a squat.

Keeping the gluteus maximus strong helps you maintain a healthy lower back.

A bridge is performed as follows:

  • Lie down on your back with your knees bent, feet hip-width apart.
  • Keep your arms at your sides and press your feet into the floor.
  • As you raise your buttocks, make your body form a straight line from your shoulders to your knees.
  • Squeeze the buttocks while keeping your shoulders on the floor.
  • Lower your buttocks to the ground and rest a few seconds.
  • Do this 15 times and then rest a minute.
  • Repeat three times.
Knee-To-Chest Stretches
 

Performing a knee-to-chest stretch can help elongate the lower back, relieving tension and pain.

In order to perform the knee-to-chest stretch, follow these steps:

  • Lay flat on your back on the floor.
  • Bend your knees while keeping both feet flat on the ground.
  • Pull one knee toward your chest with both hands.
  • Keep the abdominal muscles tight and press the spine into the floor while holding the knee against the chest for 5 seconds.
  • Then return to the starting position.
  • Repeat with the other leg.
  • Do this twice a day on each leg.
Lower Back Rotational Stretch
 

Lower back rotational stretching can alleviate pressure and tension in the lower back and trunk. It can also help improve stability by gently working the core muscles.

The lower back rotational stretch is performed as follows:

  • Lie on your back with bent knees and flat feet.
  • Roll both bent knees to one side while keeping the shoulders firmly on the floor.
  • Continue holding the position for 5–10 seconds.
  • Come back to the starting position.
  • Roll your bent knees over to the other side, hold, and then return to your starting position.
  • Perform 2–3 repetitions on each side, twice daily.

Case Study - Pain in the Back

After trying many different treatment options, Barbara was desperate to find a solution to her pain.

Due to her severe back pain, Barbara was taking the maximum dose of OTC pain medicine when she realized she couldn’t go on like that. Barbara wasn’t able to put on her shoes, shave her legs, and at times even had to have a cane.

After Barbara’s first treatment, she says that she could feel the inflammation reducing in her back. She regained control in walking and was able to start taking the stairs again.

Barbara has experienced an amazing recovery and can now get out of bed in the morning without experiencing pain. She encourages everyone experiencing back pain to try it!
