Why does Back pain return after it’s been treated?
This 3-year study into back pain across the globe published in the prestigious medical journal The Lancet reports that our current treatments for back pain are lacking in evidence of effectiveness. See article below
This research paper [below] shows how the Psoas Major Muscle exerts huge compression and sheer forces on our low spine resulting in crumpling and severely shearing the lumbar spine.

We get a warning or an indicator of impending onset of back pain but because we don’t see the connection, we ignore it until it’s too late. This is a bit like the warning light in the car coming on and you just keep changing the globe. By just having your pain area treated that is the same principle as just changing the globe in the warning light.
Back Pain will Keep Returning If The Cause Is Not Treated
By the time we get back pain we are usually in so much pain and discomfort affecting our ability to work, walk, sit and do anything much at all that our overriding concern is to get relief FAST and stop the pain so we can get back to a normal life. When we get treated it is on the back where we Feel the pain. This seems sensible. However Pain can be elusive and so a thorough look at the whole body is what is required to track back where the pain actually starts from.
How is Back Pain Treated
The normal sequence is to maybe see a GP and get started on some pain killers or anti-inflamatories, perhaps see a musculoskeletal therapist to treat the back where the pain is, maybe start an exercise regime and of course stop the aggravating activity. Most times that means don’t sit!
After a few weeks (if you are lucky) the pain starts to reduce and you feel a lot better; so you believe that this has worked and now you can go back to a normal life again. But why does back pain return after it’s been treated?
Don’t Accept Repeat Episodes Of Back Pain
Most people have a repeat or on going low back pain. The same pain, usually the same side returns when you least expect it. So you return for the same treatment again because that got it better before – right? Or did it just get the symptom (the pain) better and the original cause of the pain is still untreated.
