Exercise Still Best For Lower Back Pain
Exercise and education remain the best cure for back pain, according to researchers from Australia and Brazil. Despite this, health care professionals still prescribe expensive gadgets and procedures instead of good old fashioned physical activity.
Back pain afflicts people all over the world indiscriminately. Statistics shows that 80 percent of all people will be struck by some form of lower back pain at a point in their life., and whether the pain is acute or chronic, chances are, they will often reoccur.
According to a new study published in the JAMA Internal Medicine journal on Monday, researchers from Australia and Brazil said that the most effective cure for back pain is still good, old-fashioned exercise and education on proper posture and causes of back pain. Yet surprisingly, exercise is often not prescribed by health care professionals, who instead rely on injectables or expensive gadgets that do not address the cause of the problem.
