How Come I Am in Pain?
Whether it’s back pain, or neck pain, or sciatica, or any other kind of pain, the one question that almost all of my patients ask is, “How did this pain happen?” Since I was usually not there when it occurred it is hard to give an exact answer. However, there are some things that might help explain how people can develop back conditions.
Without even being aware of it, people compensate for life’s stresses. They move, lift, sit, stand or even walk in ways to avoid more pain. When those stresses build up to the point beyond your ability to cope, then injuries seem to come out of nowhere.
The thing about stress is it can be sudden or cumulative and can be physical, emotional, mental or even chemical. But no matter the cause, your body reacts the same way to all of them.
This is why some people can be emotionally on edge for a long time and then when you ask them to pick up or carry something very light, their back can mysteriously “goes out.”
