Why Do Our Backs Hurt?

Hello my dear patients;

Today, I would like to give you information about low back pain that I think will be useful for you.

Low back pain is a very common complaint in the society, and its incidence is around 20% for all ages. In studies, 85-90% of people experience low back pain at least once in their lives, and 50% of these patients complain of low back pain again.

We can divide low back pain into acute (less than 4 weeks), subacute (between 4 weeks and 3 months) and chronic (more than 3 months) according to its duration. In general, the recurrence rate of acute low back pain, which is caused by sudden reverse movement, trauma, being in the cold, is much lower than chronic low back pain. According to studies, it has been observed that approximately 81% of a patient with chronic low back pain will experience an acute low back pain attack for the second time within a year.

After giving you general information about low back pain, let’s talk about what we should pay attention to in order not to have low back pain.

The most important point that we need to pay attention to in order not to have low back pain is not to disturb our normal body posture as much as possible. To put it simply, if we disrupt the posture of our back, which is straight and upright, with the movements we make during the day, it is inevitable that we will have low back pain. The answer to this question is actually very simple.

Let me explain this to you with a few examples; For example, we tie our shoes every morning. Beware, most people tie their shoes by leaning forward. This is a very wrong move, because when we bend forward, too much load is placed on our back. Instead we have to squat on our knees, or rather use a riser. Or when we lift an item, notice that most people do this by leaning forward, and then some of them get stuck.

We can multiply more examples like this, my dear patients, but I think I can explain what I mean. If you protect yourself and pay attention while you are doing your movements, the possibility of pain in your back or another region decreases considerably.

My dear patients, I will share with you a more detailed article about how we should organize our activities. Hope to see you again.

best regards
