Looking For A Way To Avoid Back Surgery?
Discover A Highly Effective Non-Surgical Treatment To Help You Eliminate Your Pain And Start Living Your Life Again
One of the most frustrating things in the world is not being able to participate in life’s most enjoyable activities because your body isn’t cooperating. Unfortunately, more than 21 million Americans suffer from debilitating low back pain, leg and foot pain, and extremely limited mobility. In fact, by the age of 40, more than 80% of Americans will have suffered some kind of back pain.
But it doesn’t matter if you are in your twenties, sixties, or older, because this kind of pain doesn’t discriminate based on age. And while your symptoms may differ from others, the key to solving the problem is to identify the deeper cause of why your low back and legs are in such bad shape.
If you’ve been struggling with low back and leg pain, and have consulted a medical professional about your condition, they may have suggested unnecessary surgical procedures or life-long prescription medications. But the good news is that once you understand the core causes of your pain, there may be simple treatments available to you that don’t require medications or expensive invasive surgery.
So… how do you best identify the root causes of your pain that have kept you from experiencing life to the fullest? Well, let’s start by exploring some of the most common problems related to low back and leg pain.
Are You Suffering From or Have You Been Professionally Diagnosed With One Of The Following Problems?
If you’ve been experiencing trouble walking, your feet have been numb “falling asleep,” you’ve felt “shooting pain” or nerve pain in your legs or feet, or believe you are suffering from sciatica, keep reading.
Low Back and Leg Pain is often associated with one or more of the following:
General Back Pain: Back pain can result from a number of things, including everyday physical or athletic activity. Often unplanned or overuse of your muscles can result in what you might think of as a minor injury. But brushing this kind of pain off as “no big deal” can be a mistake, because while the pain disappeared within a few days, in reality, your body has started to adapt to the injury. This adaptation is usually a group of muscles tightening to compensate for the injury. This group of muscles is often in the Low Back since it serves as a pivot point in the body.
Disc Problems (Including Herniated and/or Bulging Discs): When you put continued stress on the “shock absorbing structures” in between the bony parts of your spine, they can start to shrink or perform in a way that isn’t healthy. Think of your discs as balloons that are getting constantly squeezed in one direction all the time as you go about your day. The difference between bulging and herniated discs is usually the difference between the need for aggressive care or surgery (this can be determined via an exam and advanced imaging).
Sciatica: Sciatica is a symptom of an underlying condition that may be caused by a number of issues, including disc problems like a herniated disc. The result is often described as pain, numbness, and/or weakness that radiate along the sciatic nerve from the lower back to the buttocks and leg.
Spinal Stenosis: If you think about the water pipes in your home, they tend to accumulate debris over time, making the passageway inside the pipes smaller. This is a simple way of looking at spinal stenosis, which is the narrowing of the passageway inside your spine. Spinal stenosis can put pressure on the spinal cord and the nerves within the spine, occurring most commonly in the neck and lower back.
Degenerative Disc Disease: Your spinal discs are soft, compressible discs that separate the interlocking bones (vertebrae) that make up the spine. Often, through a combination of factors like inflammation and abnormal micromotion instability, the discs between your vertebrae can lose their cushioning or become fractured. If you are dealing with this condition you may feel tingling, numbness, or pain in the legs, thighs, and buttocks that can worsen when you are standing. You might also experience muscle spasms, nerve injury, physical deformity, and/or stiffness.
A Relapse or Failure Following Surgery: Surgery may not address 100% of your pain. In fact, it’s not uncommon for a surgical procedure to be performed, missing the root cause of a problem. Whether it’s a relapse of pain or the failure of the procedure, many patients do find their pain has returned. This may happen immediately or several months (or years), following surgery.
Now that you’ve learned a little bit about some of the most common problems associated with Low Back and Leg Pain, what can you do to deal with those issues and start relieving that pain that is being caused (and get back to functioning at a higher level)?
