Back Pain Relief
Back pain is one of the most common medical problems in our country and affects 80% of Americans at some time in their lives. Back pain ranges from sudden and acute onset due to injury to chronic long-term pain due to poor postural habits. Low back pain can be associated with events in our lives like back pain in pregnancy, or lower back pain during times of stress.
Occasionally, back pain can be the warning sign of a deeper problem. Acute back pain comes on suddenly and usually lasts from a few days to a few weeks. Back pain is called chronic if it lasts for more than three months.
How can you get back pain relief? Bodywork, physical therapy, and postural stabilization, achieved through Pilates or Yoga. Many things can be the cause of back pain. It can be as simple as tight muscles. Or it can be as serious as severe pathological changes in the physiology such as degenerative disc disease or a herniated disc. Sometimes even some pain reduction will help tremendously.
