Back Pain and How Your Body Adapts
By Charles Herbert
I read an amazing statistic the other day. You need to have a loss of 80% of kidney function before you even have symptoms or an issue shows up on diagnostic tests.
This got me thinking. Firstly, how amazing our body is at adapting! Many people have the idea that our bodies are weak and vulnerable – that the smallest change will throw out the balance. But, the reality is our bodies are incredibly resilient. And the example of how your body can cope with up to 80% loss of kidney function before it even lets you know is a prime example.
The other thing I realised was this statistic most likely transfers to the majority of your body – your liver, your heart, your digestion, etc. So, how long does your back have to adapt before you start to get back pain? This is something I know a lot more about.
How does the body adapt to back pain?
The acute lower back pain that started 3 weeks ago is rarely a 3-week-old problem. Often the clues point back years and sometimes originate as far back as when you were a child or teenager. The body very cleverly adapts. It adapts to the repetitive strain put upon it by repeated movements and spending hours in poor posture. It adapts and adapts until it can’t adapt anymore. And then it tells you there is a problem in the language it knows best – pain.
