You move left, you move right, now forward then backwards, only to restructure the look on your face as you cringe. It’s unlike a pain you’ve felt before, and you’ve ruled out the possibility of it being natural. So what is it?
Your Joints ring a bell?
Your joints are the connection between bone to bone.
Reemeber how your mom or dad reminded you to drink your milk as a little child? The calcium in the milk not only makes your bones stronger, they keep your joints from crackle pops, and losing cartilage…
A great message that I wish I took more to heart throughout my teen age years, so that in my twenties I wouldn’t be struggling.
Any damage or injury to your lower back hjoints will cuase limited movement and mobility, with the unforgettbale pain to endure.
Many conditions can lead to joint pain, including the following:
- rehemuetoid arthirtis
- herniated disc
…And other injuries to your joints. A joint pain can range from mild(acute) to more irritating(chronic). Even the smallest amount of joint pain can take you away from your daily living. But all that starts bad doesn’t need to end that way.
Whatever the cause of your joint pain, you can manage it with 3 solutions:
- Physical therapy
- Alternative treatments
Do you need to do all 3? Quite honestly, you’ll be doing yourself a favor by 1st – stopping the pain signals with medication, 2nd-applying physical therapy to strengthen and make your joints more flexible, and 3rd-the alternative treatments that are natural will help soothe, and repair your joints from further inflammation.
You should see a doctor to figure out a diagnosis and best treatment. Your overall goal is to reduce:
- preserve joint function
In my article, I will further sum up how to treat a joint pain, and its treatments for your lower back pain joints, along with:
- Giving you an overview of your joint anatomy
- Why you get joint pain
- The types of Joint pain
- How you can fix your joints
If you’re ready to jump in, lets get it started!
The Location Of Your Joints
Have you ever asked yourself why your back gets worse after the initial muscle pain? The answer is less surprising than you think.
Your joints are at fault, but are not to blame. When your muscles become sore, and eventually lead to a chronic muscle pain, its more likely for your joints to take the pressure.
The pressure first points to your lumbar spine. Lets take a close look at your joints here.
Your lumbar spine is connected with fibrous tissues, vertebrae, disc, and nerves. Your spine also has joints similar to your:
- other joints
One problem that causes our knees to give out is from tough use such as high impact activities, but did you know your herniated disc is likely the problem?
When we sit, bend over, twist and turn, our herniated disc gets compressed and pushes back against the spinal nerves. In return we get a shooting pain down or leg and back up to our brain(better known as nephropathy). The nerve ending connecting to the back end of your spine is also connected to your knees nerve endings. Its no wonder the smallest things like standing up or walking make it seem like your knees will give out at any moment.
If you’re dealing with knee pain due to your lower back, you’ll find out how to go about knee pain treatment as you read on.
And then there’s a term we’ve all heard about…Facet Joints. You;re about to find out why its so important to understand this function of your body.
The best way I can describe your facet joints are like a finger like deformation, linking each vertebrae together. They are located at the posterior(back) of your spinal column.
But wait, there’e more responsibility they take on all for themselves…
They help make your spine flexible and allow you to move:
- side to side
Down we move to the next location – its all in the hips.
If you suddenly stand up from your chair, its a tall telling sign your Sacroilliac joint(SI Joint) is acting up. But I’m here to make sure it doesn’t get the best of you!
There are two located at your lower back, sitting to the side of your spine. Their main fucntion is to carry the weight of your upper body as you:
You can find them exactly right here:
Let’s now take things a step further and learn more about these two different types of joints responsible for irritating you on a daily basis.
The Different Types Of Joint Pain
There are two very different joints I covered right above that when they work in sync, will let you live your best life.
One of those being facet Joints. In this next segment, I will not only explain to you about it, but I’ll give you my 6 clues that its your facets.
We all lift something heavy at a point in our lives, or we twist, turn, bend, and move forward in an increased motion state. But what if you have acute, and chronic pain with no apparent cause?
Your facet joints could be in trouble. Its quite freaky to think, but more so when you feel it. The good thing is, its not unknown.
Your facet joints enable you to flex in any direction as you move, and limits your range of motion. However, there are circumstances when your cartilage wears out, and thins that’s when the pain begins. These factors cause facet joint pain, and will likely apply to you:
- aging(wear and tear)
- obesity(extra weight)
- trauma to your spine
- an injury
…All these can cause risk factors for facet joint damage.
How so you spot out if you;re having a facet joint pain, if you’ve either never had a back pain, or constantly do but don’t know the cause?
Here are the 6 clues:
- When you press on your skin, the area will feel tender, may cause soreness, and your muscles will tighten because of the pressure of the movement.
- You get unpredicatbale and constant pain that last for about months
- When you bend forward or to the side, it may not hurt, but when you bend backwards, well you’ll definitely feel an OUCH
- There are times where the localized pain is in your upper body, with shooting or burning pain, to your shoulders, and upper body but not into your arms and fingers.
- A herniated disc presses into your facet joint and in all causes your nerves to shoot pain into your buttocks and down your legs
- If you sit for long periods of time with aggravating pain, or ride in a car and feeling intolerable pain.
The facet joints counterpart is the Sacroiliac Joint(SI Joint).
Most lower back pain is not a problem of the spine, but the pelvis and hips. It’s in this area you find the sacroiliac joint. The pain might feel:
But here’s the reason why it hurts so musch.
It makes a move into your:
- upper back
Has there ever bot been a time we’ve stood up and triggered a shooting pain? Most likely not. Standing up triggers your SI joint to react against you. Two years ago, back in 2016, I couldn’t figure out why the right side of my body felt literally like hell.
I searched for answers, and eventually talked to my doctor. He informed me, that the pain came from my SI Joint. That’s because the SI Joint has never endings to either side that trigger pain signals directly to one side of the body.
Another telling sign is pain that hurts in the mornings, but gets better throughout the day.
Why is it happening?
Like any other form of pain, it begins with inflammation. It all starts when your SI Joint gets inflamed. Two of the most common ways to get it are by:
Which brings me to a short story.
At the top of my soccer career a few years back, it was game day.
In the 77th minute of the second half, I went up for a 50-50 ball(in the air). I took a bump off the other player, and as gravity pulled me back down, I landed terribly on my back. I was carried off the field, and later found evidence of not only my lumbar spine in doubt, but I constantly ever 5 minutes felt throbbing in my pelvic region.
The doctor said it was my SI Joint throbbing on my right side of the body. To this day even when I’m not feeling pain in this region, I can tell what dysfunction its caused…
One of my legs is slightly longer than the other, and when I’m jogging, I take uneven strides. This is a sign of SI Joint pain. Its famous in the arthritis world too. People who have arthritis cause a anakalysis spondyletheis.
In the next part you’ll learn how to fix your joint pain.
How To Fix Your Joint Pain
You’ll want to learn about the #1 joint supplement I’ve been using to not only help with my joint inflammation, but repair it so that less inflammation occurs. But for now let’s focus on a step by step plan.
Don’t be troubled by a joint pain, its a normal part of our aging process. What you should be more concerned with is how you to treat it.Not by Luck but by great faith, there are ways to fix the issues of joint pain not only in the short run, but the long run. Healthier joints mean a more dominant you, and active lifestyle.
If you have a facet joint pain here are the most common ways I learned to treat it for the long haul:
- Exercise. Successful long term facet joints include exercises with a physical therapist or performed by yourself once you’re ready to do so.
- Heat or cold. Hot packs, heat wraps, baths, are good sources of heat to alleviate episodes of lower back pain. And ice gel packs, will help alleviate future episodes.
- Changes in daily activities. Taking a shorter commute to work or to a place, taking more frequent breaks at work or around the house.
- Anti-inflammatory. Using anti-inflammations like NSAIDs – ibuprofem, and CO2 inhibitors such as Celebrex.
- Good posture. When you’re driving in your car, pull the seat up closer, or sitting at your desk at work, pull in closer to your screen and table. Or if you’re standing at the sink try to maintain a straight spine.
If you have sacroiliac Joint pain, there’s many treatments for it. The best way to get started is by seen your doctor. He is likely to tell you to lay off sports and activities. And it’s even most likely he’ll prescribe you drugs. Here are other things you can do:
- Physical therapy. The #1 way to treat any injury is by exercise. They can improve strength and make you more flexible. Its so effective because you’ll break bad habits that caused your SI Joint pain in the begging, and everything thereafter.
- Heat and cold treatment.
- Cortisone injections. A cortisone injection will reduce your inflammation.
- Chiropractic treatment
In very rare circumstances you might need surgery.
In my experience, I used all the treatments I’ve laid out just for you with the addition of one extremely powerful and effective formula for completely wiping out pain and inflammation. As we age, pancreas no longer create enough proteolytic enzymes to quickly shut down inflammation and complete other healing task in your body. A Dose of Heal-N-Soothe will restore your optimal circulating enzyme levels quickly so you can feel better fast.
Over the past year and a half, I’ve been able to regain the quality of:
- fewer aches and pains
- a healthier cardiovascular system
- stronger immune system
…And I can do the necessary tasks day to day to rebuild my lower back. Here’s a short video of my explaining more showing and thoroughly explaining what heal n soothe can do for you:
No Room For Joint Pain When You’ve Got The Right Attitude
You’ve learned that even when you don’t see your joints, you know they are there because you can feel it hurting. By understanding and seeing the location of both the facet joints and Sacroiliac Joints(SI Joint), you can gain a better idea as to why these two alone can cause a storm of lower back pain.
It’s important to hear why you keep getting joint pain, as much as the different types. And most significantly, is how you go about treating, and fixing them – by making them stronger.
I’ve never come across a person who didn’t have even the slightest joint pain. I would always ask the same question to each individual when I have the opportunity:
“What is it stopping you from doing?”
I always hear things most common like: working, exercising, standing up, walking, but nothing could compare to a more specific answer…
Enjoying the activities with my family.
That’s why I’ve come to not only share with you what I’ve had to get through to heal, but for each person I help bounce back, my thanks by pass me and go straight to the man I trust deeply above(God).
If you have any questions, comments, concerns, opinions, or want to share an experience you have with me, please write me a comment just below. I’ll be happy to hear from you.
