back pain

  1. Back pain increases death risk in women

    [WARNING] This common ache could turn into DEADLY risk

    Ladies, you know how quickly back pain can make life miserable.

    It keeps you from doing the things you love… and it can make sleep nearly impossible.

    But those problems may be just the tip of the iceberg.

    See, a new study finds back pain won’t just ruin your life...

    It could END it!

    The good news is I’ve got an easy, EFFECTIVE solution that can help keep you safe.

    When nagging pain turns deadly

    In the study of more than 8,000 senior women, researchers found chronic back pain can increase your risk of dying by 24 percent over a decade and a half.

    That risk is highest among women with pain severe enough to disrupt daily activity.

    The study doesn’t touch on the actual cause of the risk, which is at least partially due to the pain itself. Pain is a sign of inflammation, and inflammation is a known risk factor for heart attack… stroke… and more.

    It’s even linked to some forms of cancer.

    Chronic pain from chronic back problems means chronic inflammation, which in turn can magnify all of those risks and then some.

    But that’s only part of it.

    I’d bet there’s another cause of that death risk… and it’s not the pain itself.

    It’s the TREATMENT!

    Common pain pills, including the over-the-counter meds so many older people turn to daily, have been linked to heart problems and other serious risks.

    And prescription meds are even worse; one look at the headlines will tell you about the deadly toll of opioid overuse.

    But what if there was a way you could FIGHT the inflammation that’s causing your pain, and AVOID the use of the drugs that can lead to other problems?

    I told you earlier I had GOOD NEWS...

    How to fight “back”

    You’ve got a few different options that are safer, easier, and more effective at fighting inflammation than most OTC and prescription meds.

    The best treatment will depend on the specific cause.

    Start with natural anti-inflammatories such as curcumin, as well as topical pain relievers such as MSM.

    The following therapies also all help ease pain, fight inflammation and deliver lasting relief:

    • Chiropractic
    • Acupuncture
    • Cold laser
    • Massage
  2. Back pain linked to disability in seniors

    This common pain could lead directly to disability

    If you're locked in an on-again, off-again battle with back pain, you know that things can change on a moment's notice.

    One minute, you're having a GREAT day, able to get out and do the things you love.

    You can stay active... engaged... and healthy.

    The next, things go south. Maybe you feel a pop or a click. Maybe you "slept funny" and wake up sore. Or maybe it just seems to happen out of the blue.

    Whatever the cause, there's no going out now -- and even if you do get outside, that back pain will ensure that you can't enjoy yourself.

    Now, the latest research shows how you're hardly alone.

    Half of all seniors are battling back pain -- and it's not just a little soreness that you can tune out.

    In many cases, it leads to struggles with walking, making it so difficult that many folks end up not going out at all.

    That, in turn, leads to reduced mobility and poorer health, and -- over time -- it could steal some of your independence as you turn to others for help with daily tasks.

    People who walk less also have a higher risk of chronic disease, including heart disease, and death.

    The study shows the problem, but it doesn't point to a solution.

    That's the rub, isn't it? Most docs will tell you that there really ISN'T a solution, beyond gobbling painkillers whenever your back acts up.

    That's not an answer. That's a cop-out that leads to more pain and disability.

    There are real solutions for back pain, but too many docs have no clue where to even begin to look. Most just pass out the pain pills. When the drugs stop working -- and they will -- they'll send you off for surgery.

    Since the surgery doesn't actually address the cause of the pain, many people don't improve.

    Some get worse.

    Don't fall into that rut, because you can beat the pain without meds and without surgery.

    First, look to your habits. Poor posture and low levels of physical activity -- including walking -- can cause or worsen pain. That triggers a downward spiral: Your pain causes your posture to get even worse and makes you walk even less.

    It might seem tough to get moving when you've got pain, but keep at it. Walking and stretching can lead to dramatic improvements in pain levels.

    Second, there are a number of non-drug therapies -- including topical MSM, acupuncture, massage, and osteopathic spinal manipulation -- that can work wonders for the most common forms of back pain.
