Understanding How to Get Rid of Lower Back Pain
Most people have a hard time figuring out the best treatment for their back pain. I want you to take a step back and think about something. Imagine having a job where you’re a manager at an organization where there’s a lot of back biting and bad-mouthing among individuals. What would you do? According to organization management expert Chris Argyris, you have two choices:
- You can reduce the behavior by telling everyone to cool it.
- You can find out the underlying cause of the behavior and address it.
The first option would offer a temporary solution. Chances are that the behavior would come back again.
How is the above connected to our understanding the hidden causes of back pain?
Well, as many experts on getting rid of lower back pain will tell you, back pain doesn’t “just happen” overnight. To you the pain might seem to appear suddenly.
You bent down to pick up a pen from the ground, for example, and then suddenly you’re in pain. But is this really what happened? More than likely the problem has been developing for months. The pain may be the symptom of an underlying problem that you haven’t addressed or understand.
Just like, you guessed it, all that back biting and bad-mouthing behavior may be the symptom of a big problem going on in a troubled organization.
With this understanding, let’s address the problem of back pain. It turns out that the real reason you may have back pain is some thing called: Muscle Imbalances
What the hell is that?
Muscle imbalance occurs when one muscle is stronger that its opposing muscle. Think about this. Do you sit all day at the computer? This is what happens. Your shoulders are likely pulled forward creating a strength imbalance the front of your back and the back. After a while the imbalance, if not corrected, may result in back injury.
It’s important when thinking about back pain treatment, not to concentrate on the symptoms but on the underlying cause. This the only real way of providing a true and lasting solution to your problem.
