Did you hear what HAPPENED?! [A Story About Back Pain]
May 24, 2020
I see this happen all the time.
The other day, I was on the a popular forum called "Veritas Health" and I came across this story:
A lady was mentioning that she has had back pain on and off for over 5 years. A couple of years ago she was told that she had a herniation at L3 - L4 and was told she would need surgery.
She refused and luckily her back pain went away for over a year, however this time it was different. The pain had recently gotten way, way worse. It was unbearable...
Reluctantly, she decided to visit her doctor again hoping that he would have a different solution from the previous visit (which was more medications, and surgery).
This time instead of giving her a higher dose of painkillers and flexeril he recommended they try a cortisone injection.
And guess what happened?
To her surprise it worked!
Until 8 weeks later the pain came back with a vengeance.
So she did what many of us would do... She want back for another injection. However this time around the relief only lasted for a week.
So she waited another 8 weeks... and third time is a charm right?
Nope.. it did absolutely nothing for her :-/
What should I do? She desperately asked... (in the forum)
Unfortunately, this situation is all too common.
Medications and injections only mask the symptoms of pain and temporarily get rid of the inflammation that causes that discomfort.
And most types of back surgery are widely known to be only 50% effective.
So you have a 50/50 chance of being better off after being cut open. A literal coin toss.
And some people even end up worse!
It's shocking I know..
Why is this?
It is because the traditional healthcare system fails to recognize that treating the symptoms of an injury only get you so far... it is like putting a small band-aide on a gushing wound. It simply does not work!
The key is to figure out what the root cause of the problem and most of the time it's not what you might think!
The best way to handle back pain is by solving the actual root of the problem and taking care of that first..
