What do I do when I have low back pain?
Here is a quick list of red flags "worst case scenarios":
Outside of these symptoms, most other low back pain cases are related to mechanical dysfunctions in our movement system. Flaws in our ability to move efficiently and without compensation patterns. In other words, when you have pain your body will re-configured a movement pattern (not a good one, just a usable one) to allow you to exist in life, exercise or sport, until it finally gives.
Every time you have a bout of low back pain, the normal kind NOT the red flag kind, your discs and surrounding tissues weaken and become more susceptible to more damage and further injury. Remember, just because your pain goes away DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE FIXED!!! Pain may "go away" but the problem, or the cause of your pain HAS NOT!
Your body has simply figured out a new (compensatory movement) pattern. As these episodes accumulate, your discs and surrounding connective tissues become weaker and weaker, ultimately putting yourself at a higher risk of the "worst case scenarios".
This is not a scare tactic only a message that you should always properly address the how's and why's of your low back pain and not assume it will just "go away" or "diagnose" it as a pull, strain or disc issue. While the diagnosis is important information it DOES NOT tell you the how's and why's, only that something is wrong.
The how's and why's are what need to be figured out to fix the problem and work towards eliminate low back pain for good!!!
