Finding a way to end back pain is a goal which should be easy, but usually turns out to be a virtually impossible mission for many dorsopathy sufferers. Back pain has a hard-earned reputation as one of the most tenacious of all chronic pain conditions, since it is often misdiagnosed and therefore managed poorly by the medical and complementary healthcare professions.
The scope of this article will provide some insights on how it may be possible to be free from the burden of back ache, even if you have already been suffering for a very long time already.
In order to truly defeat back ache, you must achieve an accurate diagnosis. This also seems like it should be easy to attain, but chronic dorsalgia is surely the most misdiagnosed physical pain syndrome in the world.
Generally, back ache is blamed on some structural spinal abnormality which results from a back injury or degenerative condition. Subsequent treatments are directed at resolving the structural aberration, yet the pain continues unimpeded.
Eventually, many patients acquiesce to undergoing invasive back surgery; all in the hope of finding an end to their pain. This rarely turns out well and the epidemic statistics of failed back surgery syndrome give some idea of how many poor souls are butchered and then carelessly swept under the proverbial rug by their care providers. If this has not been perpetrated against you yet, consider yourself very lucky indeed.
Finding lasting back pain relief typically comes when the patient is so frustrated and exhausted by all the medical failures and seeks out objective information independently. Now I am certainly not saying to leave medical care behind and go it alone. I am suggesting to get more involved in your own health destiny and begin to question.
Question everything… Your diagnosis. Your treatments. The very reasons why you have pain. There is no harm in this and the process of answering these questions will provide you with a very solid education about back ache. This is the same path I chose and my research led me to a lifelong interest in patient advocacy. It became that important to me. I would hope that your own health would be that important to you too. Please get involved and use the free resource of time to further your knowledge of your own suffering.
Being that you are reading this now, I am confident that you are on the right path. Keep going. Keep learning.
I think the message on this page is loud and clear... Passivity as a patient is tantamount to slavery. You are told what to believe, what to do and how to do it. You have no choices. You are relying on care providers who are out to make money. This is no secret. Change your direction and become the leader in your own health processes.
You hire the doctor. You decide what is right for your own health. You decide what makes sense and what is rhetoric, myth or simple lies. How do you do all this? Simple. You learn. Start now. You must start somewhere.
The world is a vast place full of information, all free and all ripe for the picking. You must decide what to believe. Take time to consider why doctors recommend certain treatments. Take time to account for their financial motivations.
Take time to learn why the very medical associations which govern doctors are advising them to seriously revise diagnostic protocols in light of proven statistics that basically tell that most of what has been done to combat back pain for the past 7 decades is completely wrong.
