Chronic Back Pain
I.C.E. DOWN Cold Therapy Wraps
When back pain lasts for more than three months it is considered chronic back pain. Unfortunately, for many sufferers, chronic back pain can go on for years or even decades. The majority of chronic back pain is low back pain (LBP). Chronic back pain can have devastating consequences including job loss, depression, and drug dependency. Cold therapy can give you safe and effective relief from chronic back pain.
Chronic back pain can stem from a known back injury, health conditions such as arthritis or obesity, bad habits such as poor posture or wearing improper shoes, and more. Sometimes correcting the underlying cause of chronic back pain can solve the problem, but in some cases the cause is unknown or cannot be safely and effectively treated.
Consequences of Chronic Back Pain
Managing chronic back pain is critical to your overall wellbeing. Chronic back pain can be life-changing. It interferes with your daily activities, your ability to work, and your ability to enjoy leisure time. Chronic back pain can affect every aspect of your life, and can lead to other serious personal and health problems.
Treating Chronic Back Pain
Too many people with chronic back pain suffer in silence. Many never seek help for their pain. Those who do are often unsatisfied with the medical options.
Pain medications, anti-inflammatories, and anti-depressants are often prescribed for chronic back pain. All of these drugs can have dangerous or unpleasant side effects. Taking medications for chronic pain opens up the real possibility of dependency, and some chronic back pain sufferers do not want to take the risk. Others do not want to deal with the impairment and brain fog they experience while taking pain relievers.
A common self-care treatment of choice is the heating pad. Heat can provide some momentary relief by relaxing the tense muscles, but it can also exacerbate the inflammation which causes the pain.
Cold therapy brings down the inflammation and relieves chronic back pain. It can make you comfortable enough to perform the stretching exercises that help you regain flexibility and strength to improve the condition of your back.
The cold immediately stimulates the release of endorphins, your body's natural opiates. It also reduces the pain signals being sent to your brain.
Cold therapy can relieve your chronic back pain so that you can get back to your normal activities with a sharp mind. It can give you relief at night so you can sleep comfortably. You do not have to worry about long-term side effects such as gastrointestinal disorders and liver damage caused by many medications.
