Correct your posture, erase back pain

Whatever way your posture deviates from the normal, you know it is going to catch up with you soon. Exaggerated lumbar lordosis or thoracic kyphosis, sway back or forward neck posture, they all have one thing in common: they place unnecessary mechanical stress on your spinal (facet) joints and discs and cause severe lower back pain.

And when the pain sets in and progressively gets worse, you knew it was coming, you just never took the time to do anything about it. When the intervertabral discs under an uneven pressure of the abnormal posture loose their fluid content, bulk, and height, when the facet joints start developing arthritic changes and the cartilage is breaking down, the back pain can manifest itself in many cruel ways…

There is no medication for that. Painkillers and anti-inflamatories may mask the pain for a while, just to stop working at some stage and give you stomach ulcers. Cortico-steroid injections may or may not bring 4 – 6 months of relief (the success rate is 50%).

Surgeries will try to deal with the bulging disc by removing it (discectomy) and fusing the adjacent vertebrae with metal screws and rods, and, leaving you scarred and your spine deformed, they will not correct your posture, the primary source of your back pain.
