Pain..the kind that cancels out your daily plans, paralyzes your schedule, challenges your mind, and so much more.
My years spent in pregnancy, & multiple C-Sections brought back pain, intermittent, crippling, and the answers were rare as I struggled to find the reasons. I found myself immersed in x Rays, doctors prescribing anti-inflammatories, couch sleeping not out of choice but necessity while unable to walk to the nearest bed. Due to my legs being a full inch shorter one from another, aggravation would occur, inflammation setting into lower spine. I found that the spine alignment or in my case, not aligned will depend on proper muscle care to hold the spine in place correctly.
The back spasms would throw me uncontrollably to the ground unable to stand, walk, or take care of necessities. I vividly remember the day I was unable to stand fully upright during x rays...what humiliation...
How I wish I knew then how inflammation may come for a visit and take up residence far too long...but there are far better options then prescribed medications. Most pain really does come from inflammation with so many natural remedies and options to change the course.
Thankfully a physical therapist described how best to work with the challenges and encouraged a required lifestyle shift....
Today, 20 years from pregnancies and back spasms, I realize how thankful I am for lifestyle changes made so long ago....and how far away from anti-inflammatory medications I have come, my journey has definite measured success.
