Back pain (also known "dorsalgia") is pain felt in the back that may originate from the muscles, nerves, bones, joints or other structures in the spine.
The pain may have a sudden onset or it can be a chronic pain, it can be felt constantly or intermittently, stay in one place or refer or radiate to other areas. It may be a dull ache, or a sharp or piercing or burning sensation. The pain may be felt in the neck (and might radiate into the arm and hand), in the upper back, or in the low back, (and might radiate into the leg or foot), and may include symptoms other than pain, such as weakness, numbness or tingling.
Back pain is one of humanity's most frequent complaints. In the U.S., acute low back pain (also called lumbago) is the fifth most common reason for all physician visits. About nine out of ten adults experience back pain at some point in their life, and five out of ten working adults have back pain every year.

Treating the Symptoms and Fixing the Problem of Back Pain

Jesse: The first error was not dealing with back pain at an early stage. The second type of error in my last point is not the underlying cause.

Kevin: Right!

Jesse: and this is probably the grate. And most people do not know enough about their bodies and how their body works is regrettable. And is something that I always work to try to educate people and try to change the system. They should learn about your body. You know, like a child, and not that the basic things that teach and health classes. I think you should know a lot about your body and how it works. And for me it is much more important than I am learning trigonometry.

Kevin: [Laughter]

Jesse: You know something that I am not to use it. But I will with my body every day. I will have problems, how I live my life, I should know how my body works.

Kevin: Yeah!

Jesse: and so is a kind of problem, people do not know enough about her body. And so, if they go, they go back in, they see a doctor or they go and work with a chiropractor or physiotherapist. You do not know enough about it. And so they assume that the doctor or chiropractor or therapist is the expert. And they only hear what they have to say that makes sense. But the problem is most chiropractors, doctors and therapists not talk about them. They are not talking about muscle balances. Here we get to call what the cause is hidden, because nobody talks about it. And someone to listen if you have back pain. I urge you to go to your doctor and ask them about muscle imbalances. Just even ask them what muscle imbalances? Many of them can not even answer the question. So that's enough, the problem. So their focus is the treatment of symptoms.

Kevin: Right!

Jesse: You know, and if you treat the symptoms, yes, you can aid organisations. But you have not fix the problem. So his running back to come, it's just a matter of time, so that the error number two is not the only cause and underline the treatment of symptoms.

Kevin: How often you have heard . I had a back surgery and now I need another one.

Jesse: I can tell you dozens if not hundreds of concrete case studies of clients and customers of us who have several operations back! And in fact, I can share with you a really close personal story of a real friend of my wife. It was a career firefighter, injured on a job in a fire. Hurt, she went back into operation because they told her, you are absolutely in an operation. Of course, listen to the experts they know better than you do they actually had their operation and they came from feeling a bit better, but within a few days she had a pain in a new place. The pain has desired a little extent, where they had before, but now she moves her new pain, in another place, so that after several months of therapy and there were, of course, if no surprise that the therapy they did has not worked therapy, as is the treatment of symptoms.

Kevin: Right!

Jesse: So long story short. It passes through the series of five operations over eight years. Eight or ten years you know the time frame but five operations and this final, she came out and she could not feel her leg. And now it happened two years later, and it is still not feel their leg.

Kevin: her whole leg?

Jesse: I think she has made minor feeling to the area in the high-gluon and thigh. But almost from the thigh down, it can not feel. And she pulls it and it has with a cane, in fact, like a

Kevin: Wow!

Jesse: It is in their forties, I think it is a mother of three. I think they had three children and yes, they can not feel her leg. And she still has back pain and there is ton stories, and I can literally to dozens, if not hundreds of stories, such as from around the world, people, operations. And in fact more and more research is done in this area back to surgery and not really funny. But it is funny in the sense that you know how the traditional medical community always comes up with some fancy name and so on. . . Since back surgery is not so much that they now have a term not back surgery syndrome.

Kevin: No kidding.

Jesse: No yeah! And actually study, a few studies, I have recently has shown that 60% of the operations back on an average. 60%

Kevin: criteria for non-compliance of the operation is again or ..?

Jesse: Oh yeah! The criteria is still pain afterwards. Also 60% of people who go in for back pain with the same pain or new pain. And the number is in the worst repeat operations. I do not know, I have no information from anyone, but I know there are even worse.

Kevin: Wow!

Jesse: For people who had several operations Actually, we wanted to just spoken about.

Kevin: What is a part of symptom treatment, which is around you seem to not designed to serve people as well and some other things?

Jesse: Ok Yeah! Why do not we talk a bit about some of the common treatments?

Kevin: Great!

Jesse: Why am of the opinion that it does not work? Or why they believe they prove it will not work. And some of the things that work a little better.

Kevin: Right!

Jesse: Let's go to the way things happen, is typical of someone who has back pain. I, too, snow shovels, I sneeze, I cough or whatever. I hurt my back I go to a doctor. Almost always, the doctor write a prescription first thing. Even here, sometimes they are to be found and you will typically ask you to rest. Research has shown, is the worst thing you can do.

Kevin: Ok

Jesse: You do not want the rest, because you, you can rest your body stiffen up even more, it decreases blood flow and your body has a harder time healing and the muscles get weaker. As you know, they say to rest, you do not want. They give you a drug that is certainly not get rid of the problem. Your back pain is a physical problem. It is not in your head and it is not something that it is only the pain you feel. It is a physical problem. And so, while your head, you thought your feeling and your feelings are your pain, that alone are not the problem. Neither is a drug.

Kevin: Right!

Jesse: so you got to deal with the physical aspect of the problem as well. And, indeed well, I will definitely say later. That's what happens, you go and you get a recipe, you said to rest. Maybe it to you over Physical therapy, perhaps they do, X-ray and MRI, but say they X-ray and MRI, is like you have a bulging disc. Let's send you to physical therapy. It is not so bad. It is not so bad, we'll send you the physical therapy and see and get rid of the pain in this way, instead of the operation immediately. And so go, and you have your six weeks of physical therapy, until your insurance runs out. The therapy is hot packs.

Kevin: Yes.

Jesse: Ice maybe

Kevin: Yeah!

Jesse: Electrical simulations .

Kevin: been there. [Laughter]

Jesse: ultrasound, perhaps, if you want to orthopedic surgeons, because there is no other name for them. Orthopaedic surgeon. . for the treatment you receive an injection Corti zone. And once again, more drugs you know anti-flammatory drugs. Perhaps your physical therapy are also a number of routes with you, they are also some exercise. You have a few basic exercise to the sheet. I think maybe you and I talked about in the past. Most people leave their Doctor's Office. Your therapist office, or perhaps their chiropractors in the office with the same sheet exercises.

Kevin: Yapp!

Jesse: You know that they got the angry cat. Stretch, they have under the chest. She received side line for your knees, stretch your side. All receive the same five, six, seven, eight routes or exercises on a sheet of paper, regardless of their situation. That alone should tell you something right wrong.

Kevin: Right!

Jesse: , because each situation is different. How can these exercises and stretches out the right solution for you, me and everyone else, has back pain?

Kevin: Sure.

Jesse: to another part of the problem. But really the grate part of the problem is if you go to the doctor instead of writing a prescription. Instead of saying you go home and rest, rather than perhaps, if you go back several times now, perhaps because they had balance of recurring pain. And they begin to believe that you make it. And you know, this is very often much more likely that I ever imagine?

Kevin: Really?

Jesse: Yeah! Yes, we have probably thousands of people with whom we cooperate was in pain and recurring types of pain. It is said that these medical professionals. Maybe it's all in their head.

Kevin: Really!

Jesse: I think it is very worrying and of course the person with the pain, has been living this way for years, you know, very angry. And then they feel really hopeless. At this point people are suppose to really help them are not helping them, and now they are actually turn it around and makes them want it up.

Kevin: Right!

Jesse: and that is one of the reasons depression is so common in people with back pain is one of the reasons why we spend so much time with people not only work on the physical, but psychological and emotional aspects of it as well.

Kevin: I think that I really like that the concept back pain is something emotional as well. I think lat explain that a little bit.

Jesse: Yes, we actually have a concept we call full healing formula, and in fact is what you really know, a long Detail, but this brief summary is again back pain is a physical problem. Sun came up with the physical address. What's going on structurally in your body? Muscle-bone, ligaments, joints. What is going on. They know that the costing pain. They also have the mental and emotional impact. You know your thoughts feelings and emotions affect how you feel physically and how your body can heal.

Kevin: Sure!

Jesse: So many studies have shown, now people are negative thinkers and repeatedly let a little bit what to them. They have a much harder time healing and restoration of injury and illness. And not only with back pain, it is with all diseases and disorders. Cancer, strokes, heart attacks are everything.
