1.) Introduction to This Article

If you like to run, but you have low back pain, then this can obviously be a serious problem! We feel your pain and want you to know that you do not deserve to live with this discomfort. - Many times lower back pain can limit basic activities of daily living (ADLs). If this is the case, then running can of course becoming much more challenging too.

2.) Running & Your Body

When you run, you know what happens. Yes, you are pushing yourself and this can admired. However, you also know that more force is placed on your body, and you will be taking your movements up a notch. This includes adding more stress on your lower back.

So now what?

3.) Treatment Options

Just like anyone, you have options. You can stop running for a while and rest. But this is hard to say to the avid runner. - Rest is free, but it is not always easy to get as much R & R as you might like. This is especially true when you have other responsibilities in your life that are constantly calling upon you.

Surgery: Sure, surgery is an option. However, your doctor will tell you that they would prefer to only have you come in for a surgical procedure, when all conservative treatment options have been exhausted. Hey, let's face it.... Sometimes surgery is the option that you have to call upon to get back ache relief, but most of the time you still have other options that can help you.

4.) Back Support

If your lower back is causing you trouble, then it is time to think about supporting your lower back. The reasons why are important here. For example, if you support your lower back with a well designed brace you can get pain relief rather quickly. We have even seen people get religious and even thank their "God" that they put on the brace. No joke. Why? - Well, the pain relief can come from a biomechanical principle that increases your intercavitary pressure. All this really means is that a back support (a well designed brace) can effectively help you to reduce back pain by off loading your painful internal structures, like a herniated disc or a muscle strain for example. - These supports can be easily hidden by a t-shirt and can help stop you from making painful movements that can further your pain and injury status. - If you have pain you should think about using one to promote healing today.
