80 % of Back Pain Is Soft Tissue Pain

A study published in The American Journal of Roentgenology recently reported that 80% of back pain sufferers had soft-tissue inflammation. Soft tissues pain is inflammation of tissues like muscles due to injury. Inflammation is your body' natural relation to trauma Click Here! . When these inflammed tissues swell they usually press on nerves. This causes a second type of pain, nerve pain. If you are experiencing back pain chances you are dealing with both soft tissue and nerve pain.

So if you have sciatica, herniated disc, spinal stenois your pain is probably mixed pain, a combination of soft tissue and nerve pain. An example of this is when you experience pain running down your leg. This is your sciatic nerve sending pain signals to your brain. This was the problem I was experiencing. Even though I had a ruptured disc in my back the disc was pressing against my sciatic nerve and the pain I felt was down my leg despite the injury being in my lower back.

Do your back muscles ache? Then you are experiencing some kind of soft tissue injury, inflammation and pain. Maybe from all the snow shoveling. The only way to get rid of the pain is to eliminate the inflammation. If you are experiencing numbness, shooting pain and/or burning then it's your nerves that are fired up because the surrounding tissue is inflamed.

Eliminating the inflammation will reduce and/or stop the nerve pain. To correct this problem it's important to look at the underlying causes. Frequently soft tissue inflammation is the result of muscle imbalance. Correcting this imbalance will reduce the inflamation and stop the pain. One of the best programs specifically design to address muscle imbalance is the "Lose The Back Pain System" Click Here! by the Healthy Back Institute. Through a series of exercises custom designed for your specific back pain, muscles are realigned. As the study by the American Journal of Roentgenology points out 80% of back pain suffers have soft tissue inflammation. These people can be helped by treated the inflammation with a program of proper physical therapy.

Back Pain Caused By Consipation!

Recently got this message from Jesse Cannnon of the Healthy Back Insititue and Lose The Back Pain System.

"As you can imagine, I get thousands of emails each day from
people suffer from all types of pain...

Well, a few months ago I included an article in my email
newsletter about how sometimes back pain can be caused by,
or made worse by constipation...

And as you may already know, many pain medications cause
constipation... so this is a very common problem yet most
folks don't even realize it...

Anyway, the article recommended a colon cleanse and the
response we've received has been great..."

Now I don't know about colon cleansing. As my Mom would say: "Eat plenty of fruits and veggies and you won't have a problem." Amazing how right my mother's advice was too bad I didn't listen to her.

Jesse has a lot of great tips, exercises and videos on his website all for free! Plus a free newsletter. Click Here!

Chi-gong For Back Pain

Can Chi-gong cure an aching back? I came across the ancient chinese practice of Chi-qonq or Qigong while looking for alternative back pain treatments. Wikipedia defines Qigong as follows:Qigong (or ch'i kung) is an internal Chinese meditative practice which often uses slow graceful movements and controlled breathing techniques to promote the circulation of qi within the human body, and enhance a practitioner's overall health. There are also many forms of Qigong that are done with little or no movement at all, in standing, sitting and supine positions; likewise, not all forms of Qigong use breath control techniques.

In its simplest form, the Chinese character for qi, in qigong, can mean air, breath, or "life force". Gong means work, so qigong is therefore the practice of "working" with ones "life force". There are more than 10,000 styles of qigong and 200 million people practicing these methods. There are three main reasons why people do qigong: 1) To gain strength, improve health or reverse a disease 2) To gain skill working with qi, so as to become a healer 3) To become more connected with the "Tao, God, True Source, Great Spirit", for a more meaningful connection with nature and the universe.

All this sounds great. But does it relieve the pain of an aching back? Well with any treatment from surgery to Chi-gong there is no guarantee. However the exercises are gentle, slow movements that seem to have many benefits beyong relieving back pain.
No greater an authority than Dr. Oz (You may have seen him on Oprah.) Devotes a whole chapter to Chi-gong in his book "Staying Young".Visit his website @ http://www.realage.com/the-you-docs/you-staying-young/chi-gong-workout for Qigong exercises. I have been doing these for about two weeks and feel they have help me increase flexibility and reduce pain and tightness. Of course with any exercise program it's important to tell your doctor. One program that has a track record of success is "The Lose The Back Pain System" by The Healthy Back Institute. For more info Click Here!
