In this article, I have focused on lumadharma or lower back pain in the context of diseases or disorders but in reality, back pain can happen to anyone, without a specific medical diagnosis.
Back pain is the most common complaint among children and adolescents and it’s the most common reason for people to see a medical doctor and the second most common reason people see a specialist after headaches.
As back pain is a symptom of several diseases, disorders, or conditions, I will cover those in another article. For now, let’s focus on how it happens and what you can do to get relief.
Back pain usually happens because of overused muscles. The most common cause of this is overused muscles. Most of us are working at our desks for many hours each day and for most of us, this kind of prolonged sitting is totally normal and expected.
Our spines are at the center of our body and if they are not positioned correctly or if they are misaligned for any period of time you may experience muscle strain or even a Lumadharma.
It’s the job and responsibility of us as medical practitioners to develop a way to address this condition if it happens among us. This is a special circumstance when you consider the fact that we are the people who are going to be paying for the bill.
If you are suffering from back pain, it’s important to get relief as soon as possible. The best way to get relief is through the use of ice packs applied to the back for 20 minutes each every day. You can also use heat packs to speed up the healing process. You can use both for 2 weeks or even up to 6 weeks depending upon how severe and painful your back injury is. After 6 weeks, you can go for physiotherapy sessions to accelerate your healing process.
You must learn to cope with this condition and to accept that it will happen to you. You can start the acceptance process by understanding it happens to everybody and you can learn to live with it. You can accept this is part of the aging process and you can get some coping mechanisms to survive and move ahead.
The best way to deal with back pain is to learn coping mechanisms, which in my opinion is the best and fastest way to deal with this kind of injury. Caring mechanisms are:
* Eat a healthy diet, lots of vegetables and fruits
* Start a stretching practice
* Get some rest at each hour
* Exercise regularly
* Take supplements such as magnesium and calcium
* Start a back pain program
* Get a massage
* Sleep on a great mattress
* If you suffer from neck pain, take an herbal pain reliever
* Wear a brace which is made out of hemp or buckwheat
