Your back just went out. You probably weren't even doing anything crazy. Maybe you bent over to pick something up off the floor or just sneezed. And now you’re down on the ground writhing in agony. Don’t beat yourself up, it happens to the best of us. 80% of Americans will experience acute low back pain at least once in their lifetime. Though incredibly painful low back pain is usually benign and will clear up in around 2 weeks if you do nothing about it. Of course if you’re clever you’ll call me and do Dr. Gordon's
“Back Spasm 3”. The "Back Spasm 3" is my go to recommendation for when your back goes out:
Anti-inflammatories of your choice
And the 4th thing! Call Dr. Gordon (Of Course!)
Doing the "Back Spasm 3" along with acupuncture, cupping, and chiropractic will have you up and about in a few days instead of a few weeks. And if you're lucky enough to be reading this email while not on the floor in pain, someone you know is. Make sure you pass on the information to them.
Keep moving. Remember Motion is the Lotion!
