Over to you. That health alert about lower back pain as many as 540 million people suffer from it. According to new research, many treatments whether they’re surgery, testing, pain medication could be all wrong. Dr. Jen Ashton is in Boston and will tell us more about this. So let us know what the study has revealed, Jen. Robin, this was really the magnum opus that appeared in “Lancet” drawing attention to the massive gap that exists between evidence-based medicine and what’s really going on when it talks about low back pain so back pain by the numbers as you said, this affects 540 million people around the world at any one time. It is the number one cause of disability. Costs, both financial and personal are really unknown. But this is a massive global public health burden and in terms of causes, that’s the difficult thing. Most of the time we never know what causes low back pain, of course, there can be musculoskeletal issues like disc problem, rarely there can be infections like staph or at the berk least cyst but there’s psychological and genetic, economic factors and it’s a complex problem. It is. We’re all aware of that especially if you suffer fbom it. But any new treatments? Any help? Well, this is what was so interesting about these guidelines. They broke down the evidence worldwide and they said, first line treatment stay active. Our gut instinct is to get into bed when our back hurts and we can’t walk without pain. That is actually the worst thing you can do so stay active and if possible, try to stay at work. The second thing they say, education as a first line treatment. Well, what does that mean? Learn what works and what doesn’t work from reputable sources. Then second line and this is what I really want people to pay attention to. Guidelines recommend as option, superficial heat, pretty decent evidence, spinal manipulation, massage or acupuncture and in terms of medication, N nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories only if the other things are not working, not opioids. Well, I was going to do a quick true or false. We don’t have time. But I have the cards stacked because I have a group of nurses behind me who are going to give me the right answers anyway. I’ll put it on my Twitter, robin.
Oven Mitts & Pot Holders As Seen on TV RSS Feed Herniated discs are most common in the lumbar (lower) spine because it supports more pressure than the thoracic (middle) or cervical (upper) parts of the spine. In fact, a herniated lumbar disc often produces sciatica (the sciatic nerve in the lumbar spine region connects with your legs). With sciatica, you will feel numbness and pain down the back of the leg, side of the calf, and possibly into the side of the foot, but not necessarily much back pain. The exact area where you will feel numbness depends on the nerve root that is affected; the numbness could be in the inner ankle, big toe, heel, outer ankle, outer leg, or a combination of them. When the nerve roots’ motor function is damaged by disc herniation, you may also experience weakness in certain parts of the leg and foot.

Cold, Flu & Cough Thermals Pros: Because of excessive weight bearing and stress, athletes sometimes damage an intervertebral disc. The intervertebral discs are flat, round “cushions” that act as shock absorbers between each vertebra in your spine. There is one disc between each vertebra. Each disc has a strong outer ring of fibers called the annulus, and a soft, jelly-like center called the nucleus pulposus. The mushy nucleus of the disc serves as the main shock absorber. The nucleus is made up of tissue that is very moist because it has high water content. The water content helps the disc act like a shock absorber – somewhat like a waterbed mattress.
