Her Back Pain launches a website dedicated to research, reviews of treatments and practical tips for back pain relief.
Tucson, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/02/2013 -- Back pain is still one of the top reasons for Americans missing work, this figure has stayed consistent since 2009. Similarly, almost half of America's workforce have admitted to experiencing symptoms of back pain with a significant portion of those people being medically diagnosed with chronic conditions.
Among the common ailments people experience, lower-back pain was ranked as the second highest reason for frequent medical visits and consultations, this is almost as high as the number of people with respiratory conditions.
"These are alarming statistics, especially if you consider the costs involved with the number of medical visits people must attend" said Susan Campbell of Her Back Pain.
Studies show that an average of $50 billion is spent annually by Americans for back pain relief, this is a figure recorded for mechanical cases alone. The costs can even be higher if it is caused by more serious conditions such as kidney problems, bone loss, fractures, and even arthritis.
Campbell went on to state that “women are more prone than men to experiencing severe back problems, this is mainly due to constantly carrying heavy purses and insisting on wearing high heels.”
Furthermore, back pain experienced by the average Americans can also be caused by strained muscle and joints, which is a result of inappropriate posture and physical activities.
"There is a tendency to ignore the pain felt in your back given how common it is. We should always take this medical condition seriously, especially because it can often lead to more severe issues, like permanent posture problems, when not treated properly." Campbell explained.
She added that it does not necessarily have to be expensive to get your back feeling better again, there are so many practical tips available to address the issue. A common approach is to learn the basic stretches for back pain and practice them every day, this can eventually reduce the recurring discomfort.
Apart from stretching for back pain relief, Chiropractic manipulation is also a growing solution for more severe cases. Chiropractors, stretching, and lifestyle choices are only some of the back pain relief tips and resources available on www.herbackpain.com.
Of major concern is the impact Severe back pain has on one's professional and personal life, the website is specifically focused on practical and comprehensive resources to help aid the recovery process along. It also provides personal accounts of women who have experienced back pain themselves or who have a family member that do.
"There can be huge benefits for people if they learn some of the practical steps in achieving relief. All that is really needed is someone to educate on the different issues and treatments. That is my goal, I want to do that for those suffering from back pain," Campbell said.
