For the next 4 weeks, we are going to be discussing the myths and facts surrounding low back pain. You may feel some challenges or biases come up if you haven’t heard these statements before. It is ok to challenge your mindset and look at various perspectives.
Myth #1: I have a bad back and there is nothing I can do to get rid of my pain
Things to ponder:
- What does a “bad back” even mean? We all have changes in our back even in our 20’s. Your body is resilient and self-healing!
- More pain does not mean more tissue damage (this ties into the newsletter a couple weeks ago).
- Your back is strong as hell, period. It is meant to bend, twist, and lift!
- Find medical practitioners who don’t add fear to an already scary situation and give you the confidence to get better.
