The Realities of Chronic Back Pain

According to the National Institutes of Neurological Diseases and Stroke, chronic back pain is defined as pain that lasts 12 weeks or longer, even after the injury has been treated. Approximately 20 percent of people with acute low back pain develop chronic discomfort and experience symptoms one year out from the initial injury.

Back pain has numerous causes; however, the majority of those cases come from the normal wear and tear of the bones, discs, and joints. So common causes of lower back pain include:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Disc degeneration
  • A herniated or ruptured disc
  • Compression or inflammation
  • Sciatica
  • A vertebra slipping out of place
  • A traumatic injury

These causes all create the spine to degenerate, especially the older we get. Although back pain is rarely related to a severe underlying condition, it can require medical attention in the long run.

There are several risk factors for chronic back pain, such as:

Age — The first attack generally begins at 30 with the pain becoming more and more common as you age. The older you get, bone strength will decrease, leading to fractures, muscle elasticity, and tone decrease.

Fitness — Whether you’re a couch potato or you only exercise on weekends, it can cause back injuries the less active you are.

Weight Gain and Pregnancy — Being overweight or pelvic changes that occur during pregnancy can put a lot of stress on your back.

Occupational Risks — Work that involves heavy lifting, pushing, or pulling can lead to an injury.

In recent years, lower back pain has become worse. A study by the NINDS has found that more than a quarter of adults in the United States has reported low back pain in the past three months and has become one of the most burdensome conditions in the U.S. in terms of mortality or poor health as a result of a disease.

Far Infrared Therapy for Your Back Pain

When you suffer from lower back pain, your daily activities are severely limited. A simple act like bending down to pick up something off the floor can result in severe pain that can last for some time. And with only medication and surgery to help ease your pain, there must be a better way to get the relief you desperately need.

Now there is with the Gladiator Therapeutics Far Infrared T-Blanket. Our t-blanket was created especially to conform to your back, making it easier to get you the relief that you are craving. We recommend using the blanket for up to 45 minutes each day to get the full effects of FIR therapy.

What Back Pain Sufferers Are Saying About the Blanket
Chronic Back Pain
Gladiator Therapeutics Far Infrared Blanket Chronic Back Pain User Testimonial
My wife has a severe herniated disc at c6/7 ( she went through the windshield of a car 30 years ago). I have maintained her with chiropractic care, and now that she sleeps with the blanket, I only treat her half as much as I used to. Last week, I pulled a hamstring water skiing. I slept with the blanket every night, and within three days, I was walking without a limp. I highly recommend the blanket for anyone with acute or chronic pain.
