If you’re experiencing your first really bad backache, you’re probably panicking a little about the pain and its implications — what if it’s cancer? What if it never goes away? My first piece of advice is, relax. Low back pain is very common, and 95% of the time, it’s neither permanent nor serious. Following are 10 essential things to know about dealing with a bad back.

My father used to have recurring back pain. He went and saw a few different specialists but they weren't able to figure out what the solution was. Then he spoke with a nearby chiropractor who recommended a few different exercises and stretches for him to do. Evidently, what he needed was just to become more active and treat his body better. Since then the pain has been reduced significantly so long as he does his exercises and stretches regularly. http://www.fickchiropractic.com/pain-relief
I remember I always thought that back pain was something serious. I then realized that a lot of people mistake back pain with sore muscles. They sometimes feel the same, so a lot people can become worried about this, but like the article, said It usually isn't serious. http://illinoispain.com/medical-conditions/
Wow! On tip number two I discovered what's probably causing my headaches. I have horrible upper back pain as well. I wonder if it's pinching nerves or muscles like you said in this article that's causing my frequent headaches. I really need to get my back pain taken care of. http://www.bronxpt.com/services
My grandma has been suffering from back pain for a long time. She was telling me that she has to buy a new foam mattress every two years. My grandma told me that now she is going to a back specialist seeking to improve her back pain.
Back pain is definitely never fun to experience. Not only is it a hindrance, but it can be caused by so many different things. My wife has been developing some back pains lately and she doesn't know what's causing it. Hopefully we can find a good clinic to help her out. Thanks for the article! http://www.dorchesterchiro.com
I was in a car accident a few weeks ago, and ever since then I have had really bad back pain. I don't want to take painkillers for the pain, but I can't seem to get rid of it. My cousin told me to visit a chiropractor. She said that they are the best at treating back pain. I'm going to set up an appointment with a chiropractor in my area. I can't wait for my back pain to be treated. http://www.queenannechiro.com/chiropractic/symptoms/back-pain/

I really like your advice to not do something you know will cause back pain. It seems like a good idea to avoid back pain than to have to treat it. It also seems like a good idea to find some exercises to make your back stronger. <a href='http://www.swfna.com/capecoral' >http://www.swfna.com/capecoral</a>
yoga exercises and stretches are what helped me most with my chronic backpain. I also use a TENS device whenever the pain gets too much. This is the one I am using http://medireviewer.com/witouch-wireless-review/ however there are many other TENS devices that work. Just choose the one you like the most ^_^
Good idea about visiting a chiropractor for back pain. I have been suffering from back pain for several months now. I keep hoping it will go away on its own but I don't think it will anymore. Hopefully getting an adjustment will make me feel better.
It is interesting to hear that 80% of all Americans will miss work due to back pain at some point in their life. My mom has struggled with it for years now. She gets really depressed because of it, but I'll have to let her know she isn't alone. I think that might comfort her somewhat. I think she feels like there is no solution and the pain will never fully go away. It is a hard thing to deal with. <a href='http://www.bronxpt.com/services' >http://www.bronxpt.com/services</a>

I've been dealing with back pain ever since my car accident 10 years ago. My chiropractor wrote a great blog post about the Do's and Don'ts of back pain. I found to be very helpful. http://www.northeastspineandsports.com/blog/2014/06/back-pain-dos-and-donts/
For many years I suffered from intense back pain which sometimes could not move. I practiced judo for more than 15 years of my life and at the end, back pain took me to all kinds of physical activity. A year ago my pains have disappeared thanks to this all-natural treatment I found on internet which anyone can do at home. At least this treatment cured me completely. Hopefully it will be helpful for you as it happened with me. www.backpain-relief-4-life.com

Rolling on a form roller helps, an inversion table takes most of the pain away but the best fix is having a deep tissue massage to get the knots out of your muscles! Muscles tighten up with age where our bodies aren't design to be sitting down! As we age, we should be stretching more or else we suffer from back pain for example! I take Magnesium daily which helps relax my muscles as well!
@GolamKaderNantu I want to stop your backpain leave a msge in skype and I will help you
The question we have to ask ourselves is where do we spend most of our time? For me it's bed and work.
For my home I got a new memory foam mattress from Bragada - ONLY after shopping around for a bit. Found a good memory foam mattress guide here. In my work I sit at a desk so I got a better supporting seat cushion (it pushed my back up 3").and it seems to be helping. Best though was the new gel mattress!
Good luck! Michael
Back pain is really annoying because the pain most of the time is consistent. But I believe most can be relieved if not treated. A very nice informative video here: http://dess.me/BPain
I've been having a lot of back pain lately. I've been trying to do stretches and have better posture. It helps a little bit but it still hurts every day. Pain medication helps numb it but I think I'll just have to go to my chiropractor.
