The 5 Most Dangerous Trends In Back Pain and Sciatica Treatment

Posted by Illinois Back Institute on Mon, Jun 22, 2015 @ 05:37 PM

5_trendsAt some point in their lives, 85% of the population will experience back pain or sciatica. If you are one of them, then you need to know how to manage your pain. Otherwise, the effects on you and the quality of your life can be devastating.

Just treating the symptoms of Back Pain and Sciatica, instead of treating the actual cause of them, only prolongs your agony!

When many people first experience back pain, they know what happened is bad but they figure it will go away and get better on its own. The problem with this line of thinking is that if you are not proactive about your pain and make good decisions about it, you may eventually start making bad decisions that make everything worse. This is why it is important to discuss the different treatments and the trends surrounding them. While the medical profession is getting more and more aggressive with back pain treatments, the overall effect is that back pain is getting worse.

In a recent Gallup International poll, people were asked what mattered most to them. The top two answers were, by far, to have good health and to have a happy family. The problem is that back pain and sciatica can interfere with both of those. Consider the following statistics:

  • 85% of people experience some sort of back problem at some point in their lives
  • 31 million people are experiencing back pain RIGHT NOW
  • One half of all working Americans admit to having back pain every year
  • At least 7.6 million people cannot work because their back problems are so severe
  • It is the number one cause of activity limitation in people under the age of 45
  • Back problems are the second leading cause of disability in America


If the goal is to have good health, these statistics indicate that we are missing the mark by a mile. Back pain can be devastating. It can change lives fast, and what seems simple in the beginning can become complicated really fast. By understanding as much as you can about the trends and treatments one there, you will be in a better position to eliminate your back pain and sciatica. Just like anything in life, it takes some effort if you want something. And by putting effort into understanding your spine, the result is a better life.

This is the first part in this series. Watch for Part 2, coming soon!
