“Hey! What's going on? It's Ian Hart here co creator of Back Pain Relief4Life and Back Pain Relief expert and today what I'm going to talk to you about Your Back vs. Your Brain. So it's no secret that obviously your brain is in control of your body. Everything comes from the brain. So when we have back pain, it's a manifestation of your body or of your brain and this is where there can be a little bit confusion that goes on so you might have try everything for your physical body but nothing is actually helped. And your brain can be the other spectrum or the other side of it that is causing the back pain and it can be a combination of both things.
So when it comes to your back in general, you can have back pain because of structural issues, muscular imbalances, injuries, things of that nature. A lot of back pain stems from a specific injuries. People think 'Oh! I did this movement or I fell on my back and now I have this pain there and it's there for the rest of my life.' When the fact is that it's a little bit deeper than that so because trauma has occurred in that area, you can be more susceptible to the pain but it doesn't necessarily work exactly like that. When you have pain, your brain receives a signal so (excuse the bad drawing of the brain but..) your brain receives a signal and it interprets pain and if you have had pain, a pattern of pain, repetitive pattern, there's actually a pathway that is created in the brain that is receiving pain so the more pain your brain is receiving, the more that pathway of pain is created in the brain. So a pathway would be like basically whenever you do something repetitively, you're creating a pathway in the brain. Let's say this is a pathway right? So when you do something over and over and over again, it's like adding more cement to a road making the pathway bigger, thicker and wider so every time you do something, every time you feel pain or you do movement you feel pain, this pathway is getting bigger and bigger and your body is getting used to that stimulus or that pain you feel. So even when the physical body has removed pain, so say you do Back Pain Relief4Life and the structural issues are relieved.
There's no more trauma, we've broken down the scar tissue, everything feels better, you still might actually receive a pain signal from your brain or in your brain. So that takes time to break down that pattern, and that's actually what Back Pain Relief4Life is about, it's breaking down that pattern of pain and then restructuring the body so there is more strength, more nutrients to the injured area, more blood flow.
Also, what is important to understand is Lack of Sleep severely affects the brain, lack of sleep is connected with back pain. So if your emotions are off balance, it's connected with back pain and that's connected directly with sleep. There's been a lot of research done on that.
Lack of Oxygen in the brain, so there's not having enough oxygen in the brain in the body is going to cause back pain. So just moving around in general, exercise and getting blood flowing is gonna help eliminate back pain.
Lack of Serotonin and Dopamine, so those are the feel good chemicals in the brain. Some people do have a chemical imbalance, we can call them imbalances, they're not really imbalances, they're just you're a unique person so you have whatever chemicals you have in your brain compared to somebody else. It might be an imbalance but no one has a real imbalance. There's certain things that can be done to increase the level of serotonin and dopamine. For example exercise is going to be one of them and that is going to help you get release those feel good chemicals. There's certain things that will help reduce them which is going to be things like alcohol and we've done videos before like how alcohol is connected with back pain so if you're reducing serotonin and dopamine, you're going to have more back pain as well as tightening the muscles from alcohol. So drug use and stuff like that will reduce serotonin and dopamine, people who are more susceptible to less serotonin and dopamine production to brain want to stay away from any type of drugs cause you're going to feel back pain and move more towards exercise, healthier living. Not that anybody should do drugs but there's certain people that are more susceptible with back pain when they do those things.
Lack of vitamins and minerals, so not getting enough nutrients to the body and the brain will cause your body to be deficient and you can feel back pain just from those issues along which vitamins and minerals would also include water dehydration.
Again the Pain Pathway like I spoke about, we want to break that down. It's typically when there is a pain pathway, you might have a stress or trigger that causes you to tighten up around the back and that is all coming from the brain, that is unconscious. Watch yourself when you have back pain or neck pain or tightness somewhere, think about it. Connect your mind and see if you are holding tension in your body. This happens with everybody all the time. I do it myself, if I find myself in a stressful situation, I analyze what I am feeling and then I realized 'Whoa I was just holding tightness on my lower back for no reason at all' and that tightness led the pain and so what I might have to do is reset myself okay, relax my brain, relax my mind, internal relax my muscles and all of the sudden the pain goes away in sometimes few short minutes, sometimes it takes a little bit longer but, what is very important is exercise portion of this. So you can actually break down the pattern of the brain by doing Back Pain Relief4Life and you are also going to not only help the brain, neuromuscularly connecting the body and the brain together as well as strengthening the muscles and the ligaments and everything that surrounds the pelvis, the hips, the spine, it even helps the knees, upper back and neck as well. So this is Ian Hart from Back Pain Relief4Life, just explaining to you the difference between the physical and the brain and how they connect with pain and how you can really help reduce your back pain with both of those incorporated and also doing Back Pain Relief4Life program that's gonna help tremendously with your overall physical and mental well being.”
