FACT: 20% of people never get back pain.
Don’t you wish you were one of them?! Spinal Care Clinic wishes you could be, too. But we are the Burlington and Hamilton back pain specialist practice to help relieve the 80%. Spinal Care Clinic does help relieve back pain for our back pain patients!
Back to the 20%...who talks about them? Researchers usually focus on the 80% who do get back pain, but a group of researchers in Switzerland decided to study the 20% who don’t. What prevents them from dealing with back pain? What qualities keep them back pain free?
The participants in the study were low back pain resilient workers between the ages of 50 and 65 years. They, along with back pain sufferers of the same age, filled out questionnaires. It was found that the 20% have (1):
- better health,
- more positive health behaviors, and
- better ability to do routine activities.
Sounds simple, eh?!
