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!
