Back Pain explains what back pain is and how it can be treated and prevented.
Back pain in its various forms is a massive problem all over the world. This information site explains in simple, everyday language, various diagnosis from spinal stenosis to disc herniations. It enables everyone to understand what their doctor is talking about when given a diagnosis.
It was written by a UK physiotherapist (physical therapist) who wanted to provide valuable information to sufferers of backpain. The primary aim of the website is to explain common labels/diagnosis, doctors often give to back pain sufferers.
It is in my experience that patients who see their doctor may be told that they have 'spondylosis' or 'you have sciatica'. But what is it really? People tend to nod their heads as they don't want to give the impression that they do not actually know what on earth the doctor is talking about! This can leave you more confused and worried than before due to uncertainty from the label just given to you! This site will help you understand what the medical jargon means!
The information here is written in everyday, easy-to-understand language without the confusing medical terminology. For each condition there will be a short description of the symptoms and treatment options at the end.
So, whether you have low back pain or know someone who has lower back pain, you can find your answers here and understand what it is all about.
