Why Back Surgery Fails So Often

Researchers from Duke University show that back pain is usually caused by a person’s immunity attacking the disc in the same way that it attacks invading germs, not by a broken disc pressing on a nerve. They found that people with back pain associated with damaged discs have high levels of Interleukin-17, produced by your immune lymphocytes and known to cause asthma, rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases.

The natural history of back pain from "disc disease" usually starts after you hurt your back. You often appear to recover after several weeks or months of pain.  However, the back pain can recur any time later, even many years after your original back problem.

 

The bones of your spine are separated by pads called discs. When you hurt your back, you can crack the outer layers of a disc, so the softer inner layers protrude through the cracks into the spinal canal. The softer inner layers of a disc normally are not exposed to the immune system. So the human immune system does not recognize it as self and attacks it in the same way that it attacks invading bacteria and viruses. The protruding inner portions of the disc then swell to press against nearby nerves to cause pain. This research implies that the immune reaction that attacks the protruding broken inner portion of the disc causes the disc to swell and press on nerves. The authors
feel that the pain is not caused primarily by broken pieces of a disc pressing on nerves so it is incorrect to use the common term "slipped disc".

If this is true, future treatment for disc disease would be to inhibit the lymphocytes that make interleukin-17. This would allow the treatment to reduce pain without blocking the body’s ability to prevent infections and tumors.  Either way, surgery for "disc disease of the back" has among the highest failure rates of any surgery today.

A Great Yogic Back Pain Stretch

Almost all cases of back pain are caused by muscle imbalances. The only effective method for relieving the pain that muscle imbalances cause is stretching the stiff muscles. In this article about back pain relief stretches you will find out about a very powerful yogic stretching exercise. This exercise is popularly named "the Kundalini Chiropractor" because of its ability to correct all types of back problems.

This exercises is thousands of years old and our ancestors used it to develop strong and flexible backs.

What is the exercise?
The exercise is called cat-cow because of its alternating poses which resembles the poses of a cat and a cow. This is a exercise that both stretches the stiff and strong muscles of the back and at the same time strengthen the weak and undeveloped back muscles. The best thing is that everybody can do it, no need to be a flexible Yogi.

How to do it?
Begin the exercise by standing on all four. Your palms are on the ground about shoulder width apart with the fingers pointing forward. Your knees are directly in line under your hips. Then inhale and tilt your head back and at the same time flex your spine downwards the floor. This is the cow posture. Then exhale and lower the head to the chest and at the same time flex the spine upwards, like a cat. The exercise is done in sync with the breath as it is deciding the tempo. Start doing it slowly and as you get warmer speed up the tempo. Begin practicing it for 3 minutes a day and increase the time as you get the hang of it.

This is a exercise that stretches and strengthens the entire back. It’s very powerful and don’t be surprised if your back pain is gone after you have tried it.

The Truth About Back Pain Revealed: Defense Posture = Less Gratitude?

 

 
The Truth About Back Pain Revealed. The blog that explains how to apply quantum principles to end back pain is back (after a true holiday)! If you want to follow the thread, please check out my previous blogs on this subject.
 
There is an intriguing relationship between the physical posturing, pain and tension patterns of one’s spine, one’s perception/consciousness and one’s behaviors in the world.
 
Would you attempt to pet a dog if its tail was tucked, its ears were back and its shoulders were scrunched up with hair bristling? Probably not. Why? Because the animal is obviously in a defensive posture.
 
Reaching out to pet that dog is a risk because a posture like that means that the animal is perceiving your approach as a threat. The dog’s behavior is being guided by it’s fight or flight instincts. Even if you’re trying to help it out of danger or feed it…you’re likely to get bit because the animal is operating from the most primitive part of its brain for behavioral instructions at that moment.
 
Our own spinal posturing, perceptions and behaviors share similar principles. When we get overwhelmed, injured or stressed we’re apt to shift into the fight or fight mode. Our shoulders droop, our chests sink in or protrude out, our necks and jaws jut forward, our tailbones tuck.
 
Along with these postural changes comes a reduction in the flow of blood and oxygen to the highest most evolved parts of our brains — the cerebral cortex and neocortex. These regions are associated with an ability to form meaning, put things in context, be aware of and observe our own actions, experience gratitude, feel compassion and all “higher” states of being.
 
Defensive Posture = Less Gratitude and Less Conscious Awareness? Yes.
 
And what about back pain? What does all of this have to do with ruptured discs, torn ligaments, strains and sprains and sciatica? We’re on our way there. Stay tuned.
 
Warmly,
 
John
