Sitting Disease Lower Back Pain

Table of Contents

Lower back pain remains a prevalent concern among adults worldwide, significantly affecting their quality of life and productivity. This condition, often associated with sedentary lifestyles, is challenging to treat.

ANF Therapy®️ is a revolutionary treatment approach that can effectively manage back pain with the help of ANF Devices by treating the underlying cause. This therapy aims to activate the body’s natural healing response. 

What Is Lower Back Pain?

Lower back pain is characterized by discomfort in the lumbar region of the spine. It can vary from mild, occasional aches to persistent, severe pain that affects mobility and daily activities. The causes of lower back pain are multifaceted, including muscle or ligament strain, disc herniation, arthritis, or spinal stenosis, among others. The rise of sedentary jobs and lifestyles has exacerbated this issue, increasing lower back pain across various demographics. 

The Anatomy of Lower Back

The lower back, or lumbar region, is a complex structure of interconnecting bones, joints, nerves, ligaments, and muscles, all working together to provide support, strength, and flexibility. However, this complexity also makes it susceptible to injury and pain. Lower back pain can stem from problems with any of these components, often resulting from strain, poor posture, or internal conditions such as disc degeneration.

Common Causes:

Lower back pain’s etiology is multifactorial, with common causes including but not limited to: 

  • Muscle or Ligament Strain: Heavy lifting or sudden awkward movements can strain back muscles and spinal ligaments.
  • Disc Injury: The discs between the vertebrae can be herniated or ruptured, leading to pain.
  • Arthritis: Osteoarthritis can affect the lower back. In some cases, arthritis in the spine can lead to a narrowing of the space around the spinal cord, a condition known as spinal stenosis.
  • Osteoporosis: Bones becoming porous and brittle can lead to vertebral fractures. 

Risk factors enhancing the likelihood of developing lower back pain include age, lack of exercise, excess body weight, diseases, smoking, occupational hazards, and psychological conditions. 

Signs and Symptoms:

Symptoms of lower back pain can range from a dull ache to a stabbing or shooting sensation. The pain may make it hard to move or stand up straight. Acute back pain comes on suddenly, often after an injury from sports or heavy lifting. Pain that lasts more than three months is considered chronic.  

The Concept of Sitting Disease and Its Link to Lower Back Pain

Sitting Disease refers to the cluster of health issues that arise from excessive sitting, particularly in the context of modern work environments. This condition is not a medically diagnosed disease per se but rather a health risk factor associated with a sedentary lifestyle. The primary concern is that prolonged periods of sitting can lead to numerous physical ailments, including significant impacts on lower back health. 

How Does Sitting Disease Affect Lower Back Pain?

The human body is designed for movement, and the lack thereof can lead to weakened back muscles, reduced flexibility, and strain on the spine. These conditions are precursors to lower back pain, highlighting the direct link between Sitting Disease and the discomfort experienced in the lumbar region. The mechanics of sitting, especially with poor posture, increases the pressure on the spinal discs, leading to accelerated wear and potentially chronic back conditions. 

Risk Factors for Sitting Disease:

Key risk factors for developing Sitting Disease-related lower back pain include job nature, lifestyle choices, and lack of physical activity. Preventative measures focus on reducing sedentary behaviour through regular breaks, standing desks, and incorporating physical activity into daily routines. Awareness and education on ergonomic practices are also crucial in mitigating the risks associated with prolonged sitting. 

Lower Back Pain Management With ANF Therapy®️

ANF Therapy®️ has emerged as a pioneering solution for pain management, particularly for individuals grappling with lower back pain. This non-invasive therapy aims to address pain at its root cause and initiates a natural healing process. Treatment of back pain due to sitting disease with ANF Therapy®️ involves the following steps: 

History:

First, the ANF Therapist will take a detailed history of your back pain. He will ask you about:

  • Your biodata
  • Severity of pain
  • Nature of back pain
  • Aggravating and relieving factors
  • Occupational history
  • Medical and surgical history
  • How much back pain has affected your routine

Physical Examination:

After the history, an ANF Therapist will perform a detailed physical examination and assess affected areas, structural abnormalities, changes in skin colour, hairy patches, and range of motion. 

Then, an ANF Therapist will examine relevant anatomical structures, including the gluteal nerves, sacroiliac joint, adductor and hamstring muscles, pelvic floor, psoas and quadratus lumborum muscles. It will also assess the gut, nervous, and lymphatic systems for signs of invisible inflammation. Further evaluations may include the kidneys, ovaries, neurological stress levels, lumbar spine, and gluteal muscles, among others.

Moreover, it will examine the nervous, cardiovascular, lymphatic, and musculoskeletal systems.

Application of ANF Devices:

After a detailed examination, an ANF Therapist will customize the ANF protocol for you. It will apply pain & inflammation, antioxidants, and MC and energy devices. These devices activate neuroreceptors that promote optimal communication between the nervous system and other organs of the body. This is how ANF Therapy®️ aims to activate the natural healing process of the body.  

Expected Outcomes:

ANF Therapy®️ aims to restore normal frequencies in damaged tissues and systems, mitigate inflammation and oxidative stress, and enhance the body’s natural healing processes.

Typically, patients experience noticeable effects within 10 to 60 minutes following the application of ANF Devices. The potential orthopaedic benefits of ANF Therapy®️ include a reduction in pain by up to 50% within the first 20 minutes, enhanced mobility and range of movement, improved tissue quality manifested by decreased oedema and increased resistance in muscle tissues or ligaments, diminished inflammation in musculoskeletal tissues, and overall improvements in strength and quality of life.

Follow Up:

Treatment of back pain with ANF Therapy®️ consists of multiple sessions. The number of sessions and treatment duration depends on the severity of your condition and the body’s response to the treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How do you treat sitting disease?

We treat sitting disease with the help of ANF Therapy®️ or Amino Neuro Frequency Therapy®️. This therapy uses ANF Devices charged with certain frequencies that activate the natural healing process of the body and treat the root cause of the problem by strengthening weakened neurological frequencies. 

How many hours of sitting is too much?

Sitting for more than 5 hours without standing or walking is considered as sitting too much. If you take breaks and walk during this period, it won’t affect you badly. However, if you sit for a longer time without walking or standing during your working hours, it may affect you badly.  

What happens if we sit for long hours?

Sitting for long hours exerts pressure on the muscles of your lower back, pelvis, and spinal vertebrae. If you sit for long hours, you might sit in a hunched or slouched position that can result in strain of ligaments and muscles. Moreover, cervical discs may get damaged or lose their cushioning effect due to improper posture and pressure. 

Can ANF Therapy®️ treat lower back pain?

Yes, ANF Therapy®️ has effectively managed thousands of chronic back pain patients. The reason behind its effectiveness is that it treats the root cause of problems instead of just treating symptoms. This frequency therapy aims to strengthen and activate the natural response of the body to heal the body from chronic inflammation and pain.
