As many as 31 million Americans can be experiencing back pain at any given time (1), which is quite a significant number of us. Back pain, and how you manage it, can literally make the difference in whether your day is bearable or not. Even a little back pain, especially if it is regular, can grind you down. But if it becomes so severe that you find it difficult to carry out your daily tasks then it can become a real issue. It is then that most of us would be likely to find something to help with this. But in reality we should do this when the first signs of pain is discomfort occur.
Back pain can occur because of many different reasons. These can include an accident, car crash, Sciatica, a slipped disc, whiplash – not always as a result of a car crash, a frozen shoulder, and a long-term chronic condition called Ankylosing Spondylitis. This is where the spine and other areas of the body can become inflamed. It usually starts in teenagers or young adults.
