    RE: Back pain

    Back pain has become a common issue to almost all people. A few months ago, I had lower back pain. I went to orthopedic surgeon doctor. He diagnostised MRI, X-Ray everything and suggested me few back exercise and also change my sleeping posture and sitting posture. He advised me to sleep on a firm mattress or sleep on floor. Before that, I was using bad mattress. But after that, I got a new firm and spine supported mattress from http://www.spinemattressguide.com/ . Now, I am almost free from my severe lower back pain. Thanks to my doctor and his valuable advice. I think everyone should meet the doctor for better solution and treatment.

    Hi Amarile,

    Sorry to hear about your back pain. You should seek care from a primary physician that can tell you what the pop was from/if there's anything you need to take for it, but they may not be as helpful in treating the pain. I can't say that I've experienced your diagnoses, but as for the back pain I've had incidences similar to yours so I have an idea of what you're experiencing. Recently I found some Youtube videos made by a physical therapist named Dr. Jacobs. I watched one of his videos on back pain and it helped me realize that treating chronic pain like this needs to be treated holistically. He uses a biopsychosocial model to treat his patients, which I've tried applying to my own life and thus far I've had some good results. I'm not sure if your pain is chronic, but just in case I've linked some sites below.

    Here's the link that explains the biopsychosocial model I'm talking about- https://advancedsofttissuerelease.com/

    And here's the video on back pain that I watched! It's about pain from scar tissue and inflammation, which could be what you're feeling that pain from- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKecNwQMfRQ

    Hope you get better soon.

    This same thing just happened to my sister 2 wks ago. Bent over to feed the cats and pop pop pop! A week later couldnt walk, sciatica nerve pain so intense ended at er. They gave her meds and advised her of a good back doctor. Two days later excruciating pain and lost feeling in left leg. Back to er and immediately taken for MRI. Within one hour was in OR. They popping sound and pain was her disc buldging and one herniated. The herniated had engulfed her scaitic nerve and if they had not taken her to surgery she could have been paralyzed! Surgeon removed the disc and scraped as much arthritis off as he could. Do Not Wait!!! She is so much better and recovering nicely. Disability here she comes.

    Hope you're OK. If you have a herniated disk in your lower back, and you feel tingling in your legs that means that your hernia is putting pressure on your spinal cord which is a very serious problem. You need treatment first and forum recommendations later.
    Though, if you already know which diagnose you have, you probably should change your routine and - almost certainly - your bedding ( https://www.talkaboutsleep.com/best-mattress-for-sciatica/).

    I have had problems much like yours from time to time. I’ve had good luck with massage therapy and/or with chiropractic. Chiropractic seems to have been especially effective for my sciatica.
