Any number of medical issues may affect a person, ranging from issues with the teeth to difficulty breathing to illness and even mental disorders such as serious anxiety. Meanwhile, one of the most common, but completely treatable, issues facing most people around the world is back pain, and back pain disorders such as spinal disorders or pulled muscles. Chronic pain is common around the world for a number of reasons, but rehabilitation is always possible for a spine with the help of a chiropractor, and a yoga expert and other personal rehabilitation trainers can make rehabilitation painless and non-invasive. Many millions of Americans each year opt to visit a chiropractor, yoga expert, and others for rehabilitation that does not involve serious surgery. A spinal disorder expert may be consulted by someone who had a bad accident at work or a sports injury, and pulled muscles or cramped muscles can be addressed with rehabilitation with a yoga expert. Who suffers pain, and what causes it? What might rehabilitation do for those with chronic pain?
Pain and Causes
Chronic pain is common enough, and it can involve the spine, the neck, the hands, or nearly anywhere else, and the causes are just as varied. Around the world, nearly 1.5 billion people suffer from chronic pain, and this often includes American adults, too. In fact, in current times, nearly one half of all working Americans admit to suffering from back pain symptoms every year, and experts have estimated that as many as 80% of all Americans will suffer from back pain sometime in their lives, a significant number of them. At any given time, around 31 million Americans are suffering from lower back pain, and this may be coming from the spine, the muscles, or both. Nearly one in three women will suffer back pain, and one in four men will suffer it, too, and the causes vary.
Where is this pain coming from? Back in 2017, Statista conducted a survey and found that 29% of all American adults suffering from back problems believed that stress was causing that pain, and another 26% believed that weak muscles or a lack of exercise was a cause for that pain. Meanwhile, another 26% blamed hard physical labor for causing their back pain, and many jobs today, despite automation, are certainly demanding on the body, such as construction labor jobs. Other times, simple old age can compromise a person’s spine and compress it, pinching nerves and warping its alignment and shape, and this causes chronic pain among the over-65 demographic. Other times, it is a sports injury, such as in football, soccer, or basketball that causes chronic pain, or even improper weight lifting or cardio at a gym. What can be done about all this pain?
