Back Pain Therapy for the Photographer

As a photographer I found myself bending, squatting, twisting and kneeling for hours at a time.  One of the things that I found out was how much a photographer needs a strong back.   After a few months of dealing with pain, I decided to do something about it.  Here is my update.   After doing some research I found that there are many ways to skin a cat, here is what I found.

Many work people suffer from back injuries. To clear things up “back-injuries” can be any pain or any kind of discomfort that you feel in the back. Back-injuries can either be permanent or on short term basis. Most people don’t understand the severity of the back pain until it becomes unavoidable and they have to consult their physician. Our back plays a very important role in supporting us and people who suffer from back pains find difficulty in getting up from a chair or from bed, bending, etc. It may also lead to insomnia due to severe pain.

Time is changing and so are people and their lifestyle. Today everyone is so busy keeping a pace in personal as well as professional life that they tend to ignore their health. There are so many diseases that people suffer from and most of them occur due to the kind of lifestyle people are forced to live today. In earlier days, life was smoother and people didn’t have much tension about anything whether related to family or their career. Today stress and pains have become part and parcel of our present life.

There is various back pain therapy that you can undergo to cure your back problem. If you have severe pain due to some injury then you must see your physician and only then should go ahead with the back pain therapy.

  • Drugs and pain relieving pills: you can take these after consulting you doctor and according taking its dosage. These pills many times show their effect and relive you from the back pain. This can be an effective back pain therapy.
  • Chiropractic care for back pain: this back pain therapy is mostly used by people where a chiropractor first takes the medical history of the person then conducts a physical examination and then one or more manual adjustments by the doctor.  This form of therapy often is multi-faceted and involved  using inversion tables for stretching,  yoga and daily stretching in addition to chiropractic trips.
  • Bio-electric therapy for back pain: this is very safe and drug-free treatment opted by people which not only cures chronic pain but also acute pain. It blocks pain message in the brain using bio-electric currents and this therapy also releases endorphin which help to relieve pain
  • Nerve block therapy: in this therapy nerves are blocked for pain treatment and management. Never blocks can be of different types which serve different causes. The nerve causing pain is blocked by injecting some medication thus the pain is also blocked.
