Back pain is a common and disabling condition. It affects people worldwide. Whereas none of us want to feel back pain, it remains a necessary part of life. Protecting and alerting us, pain is also essential during the healing process.
Through the different posts on this blog, you will learn how pain works. For instance, it is not unusual to not feel any pain until you see the injury with your own eyes, or have a life-threatening condition that is not particularly painful.
Remember that although no one wants to feel back pain, a painful experience is a normal response from your brain to a menacing situation.
