    Yoga: A Secret Weapon Against Back Pain

    By Dr. Mercola

        The vast majority of Americans will experience back pain at some point during their lives. In most cases (upwards of 90 percent), the pain will go away on its own, allowing you to go about with your normal activities.

        Still, if you’re in the midst of a back-pain episode, the pain can be severe and debilitating, and this is why back pain is the leading reason why people visit orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons, and the second leading reason why people visit primary care physicians.

        For a small number of these people, an estimated 5 percent to 10 percent, the pain may become chronic, leading to repeated medical visits. Unfortunately, despite seeking medical treatment, many patients who visit primary care doctors for back pain report they are “often dissatisfied with the care, information, and treatment they receive.”

        Among those with chronic back pain, “unmet needs and expectations” are common. In fact, according to one study, “patients repeatedly seek care, not because past care was remembered as having been helpful, but because past care failed to answer fundamental questions about the cause of their pain.”  

        In other words, many people with back pain are looking to understand the underlying reasons why they’re in pain, but, instead, what they’re often getting is a lot of superficial (and unnecessary) treatment.

    15 Natural Remedies for Back Pain

    Another excellent article from Mercola.com.

    By Dr. Joseph Mercola:

    "Up to 80 percent of the US population will experience back pain at some point during their lives. Most often, the problem is mechanical in nature:1 the result of poor posture, repetitive movements, or incorrect lifting, for instance (as opposed to resulting from injury, infection, or serious diseases, like cancer).

    If you visit a conventional physician for back pain (which is actually the second most common reason for doctor visits, outnumbered only by upper respiratory infections), you’ll most likely be offered only a superficial treatment.

    Pain-relieving drugs are among the most common treatment followed by steroid injections and even surgery. Along with being fraught with side effects, none of these solutions tend to lead to full recovery, leaving many patients still struggling with back pain, often chronically."
