Bed Rest is Harmful to your back pain

Most people, when suffering from back pain, tend to take prolonged bed rest hoping that it would cure their back pain. But it was mentioned in top journals that bed during back pain can be counteractive. Many leading doctors and researchers have proved that taking prolonged bed rest during your back pain can be counterproductive.  Thus the specialist in our city such as Spine Surgeons In Chennai does not suggest taking long periods of bed rest during any sort of back and neck discomfort.

There are several ways in which bed rests for a longer duration can potentially turn out to be harmful to you. It will lead to deconditioning of your paraspinal muscles leading to atrophy(reduction in muscle mass). It’s a long-term effect that you should not ignore at any cost. Moreover, your back paraspinal muscles will become incapable of enduring compressive loads. That may result in us in loss of back curvature (Lumbar lordosis) will end up having flatback.

If we have lower back pain or Sciatica, we should stay a bit active to strengthen our paraspinal muscles with our pain permission. Walking, stretching, a specialist-guided/supervised back muscle strengthening exercise program, and yoga poses can be of great help.
