The Worst Back Pain Tip Ever


lady leading over in back pain

Getting back pain relief not only demands knowing what advice to take… but what advice to ignore!

By Jesse Cannone

I’ve spent years sharing how people with back pain can end the pain and get their life back.

And over the same years I’ve heard a TON of bad advice. Sadly, much of it originates right from the medical community.

While it’s important to know what to do to get back pain relief, it’s just as important to know what to avoid.

So today I’m not only going to share the worst back pain tip ever… I’m going to give you the top three worst back pain tips I’ve heard over and over again that you need to ignore…

Worst Back Pain Tip #3: Bed Rest

Staying in bed for a day or two may be called for after injuring your back, but anything more than that could keep you in pain even longer.

While you’re lying around in bed, your muscles atrophy and stiffen, which can lead to even more back pain. Some studies have shown that more than a couple days of bed rest can double your recovery time!

So if you’re struggling with back pain, get out of bed and move around to loosen up and give your body a chance to heal.

Worst Back Pain Tip #2: Pop a Pain Pill

Let me ask you a key question here. Do you want to heal your back, or just not feel any pain?

I completely understand if your answer is “both!” The problem is, taking pain pills won’t do anything for the reason your back is hurting in the first place. Worse yet, most pain pills have dangerous — even deadly — side effects.

Sure you want fast relief from back pain. But start with a natural pain relief option that doesn’t more than triple your risk of death, ok? Then be sure to work on the underlying cause of your back pain so it doesn’t come back.

Worst Back Pain Tip #1: Back Surgery

This one really takes the cake. At the rate some doctors wheel patients into surgery for back pain, you’d think it was the only way to treat chronic back pain. Nothing could be farther than the truth.

Back surgery is so risky, and failure so common, that it’s the only operation with its own clinical term for failure: failed back surgery syndrome.

Yet most doctors never even mention alternatives that are proven again and again to eliminate the need for surgery altogether. Like inversion therapy, where 70% of patients who tried this much safer alternative were able to cancel their planned back surgery altogether!

So What’s My BEST Back Pain Tip?

I’ve been asked many times for my favorite back pain tip… but the problem is it depends on the person and their situation. That’s why I’ve put together an entire book of my best back pain tips — 101 of them — some of which I’ve never shared before publicly!

    Nice post… scary how this bad advice is what we all tend to get. The tips in your 101 tips ebook are excellent… much better than I anticipated. Thanks again for the great work you all do!

    Seems to me these pain relief ideas are much better than anything you’d hear from a “Pain Clinic Doctor”. My husband has had 2 surgeries on his spine and our daughter has had 7. Yes, SEVEN so far. Both are severely disabled and unable to do very much, and both depend on large quantities of pain pills just to be able to walk around the house. Injections of steroids only help the pain for a few weeks, if at all.

    I want to read your book and then pass it on to them! They’ve learned the hard way that spine surgeries rarely, if ever, cure back pain. Perhaps they’d benefit from your methods of dealing with back problems.

    I was glad to read that you are advising people not to spend too much time in bed if they want to lose their back pain! May I share some of the things that have helped me?
    1. If my back is aching I try and find a place to lie on my tummy with my shoulders raised, possibly also my legs, just a bit, and stay there for maybe 10 minutes. If I have been mistreating my back this can be a very uncomfortable position at first, but it is worth putting up with the pain as things settle back into place.

    2. If you are suffering from backache think about changing your car. I used to have problems with my back years ago when I had to drive any distance. Then I bought a very small people carrier. To begin with I found it a bit tiring to drive as sitting upright in a high seat and constantly swaying to keep my balance over rough bits seemed to be demanding. Then I made my first 1000 km trip with it: the backache which normally followed this event totally failed to materialise and gradually I came to realise that low “comfortable” car seats in which the driver is isolated from motion and his/her back slumped into the soft seat back while the legs are stretched odut in front for long periods of time are deadly for the back. Sitting upright and swaying with car movement keeps the muscles working and backache at bay. After 18 years of driving my minivans I had to compromise and buy something lower (I have now to drive through a very windy area to reach my work and the minivan was too light and high, making this somewhat risky) but it took me months to find something which had a suitable seat. In the end I took the most upright I could find, over time added an “orthopedic” office chair cushion and pads to the seat back to give me support where I needed it and prevent slumping, and also to keep my head from being forced forward by the headrest all the time, so once again I can drive long distances without suffering – just as long as I am driving my own car!

    3. follows alsso from above: Choose chairs and arimchairs which don’t allow – or force! – you to slump. While it is attractive to slump into a soft chair occasionally, it is a bad choice in the long run.

    4. Get sufficient exercise, but don’t over-do it.

    To healthy backs and pain-free living for all!

    ps. I am 67,, so have had time to develop aches and pains. Occasional use of homeopathic remedies or creams deals with any problems which arise and I have no need of anything else, so far at least.
