But before submitting to their advice and making a life changing decision on how to handle your problem, why not explore a non-surgical option for chronic back pain relief?
Before we can look at a non- surgical option for chronic back pain, it’s important to first understand that treatment for chronic back pain should be different from that for acute back pain.
Acute pain means that you’ve had it for less than three months. It responds well to less invasive treatment and so surgery is seldom considered.
An example of acute back pain and its treatment would be: Your back is virtually pain free until one day you fall off a ladder and pull the muscles in your back. You first have an Xray taken to make sure nothing’s broken. If a vertebra is in subluxation, you visit a chiropractor or osteopath. If all looks well, therapeutic massage from a qualified massage therapist will ease the soreness. After a short time your back should heal nicely and there will be no further need for medical treatment.
Chronic pain is very different from acute pain and its treatment should be different as well.
Chronic pain is long term pain. It doesn’t go away despite all your attempts to get rid of it. For example: You can remember having back pain that started (for apparently no reason) as a child or young adult. Or maybe you had a fall and even though you had sound medical treatment, your back pain persisted and even got worse. The years have passed and despite various medical treatments you are living in chronic back pain. You are now considering back surgery.
At this point, let’s take a different direction than a trip to the surgeon’s office.
Treatment for chronic back pain must be different than that for acute back pain because the cause of the problem is different.
People who do not suffer with chronic back pain most likely were born with an optimal foot structure. As a result they enjoy good posture and seldom have back pain. Whereas, those who suffer with chronic back pain most likely were born with a Rothbarts Foot or PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity. As a result they are predisposed to bad posture and resulting chronic back pain.
Because these two abnormal foot structures are so common, the cause of chronic back pain – barring a trauma, infection or autoimmune disease – is usually found in your feet.
The Only Non-Surgical Option For Permanent Chronic Back Pain Relief
The Rothbarts Foot and PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity do not respond to typical modalities that are used to treat acute and chronic pain. They do not respond to surgery.
If you have an inherited, abnormal foot structure, the only option that will give you permanent relief from your chronic back pain, is in fact, a non- surgical solution. When your abnormal foot structure is effectively treated, your posture permanently straightens, your muscles and joints can then heal themselves and your chronic back pain will be gone.
Reading the Curing Chronic Pain website will give you more information about the abnormal foot structures Professor/Dr. Rothbart discovered that cause many forms of chronic muscle and joint pain and help you determine whether an Initial Phone Consultation with him might be helpful.
For a more complete explanation of the Rothbarts Foot and PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity, read: Abnormal Foot Structures That Cause Chronic Pain.
