Low Back Pain Chart 20x26
You might justifiably feel that the only thing worse than back pain is chronic back pain. Lower back vertebrae support your weight when you are sitting or standing. Therefore, the most comfortable position is lying down. Excessive bedrest can lead to muscle atrophy and more pain.
If only you could find one pill or an injection to relieve the pain. Unfortunately, with referred pain and a combination of neurological and musculoskeletal causes, treatment can be unrewarding. This poster offers greater insight into protecting healthy backs and the process of healing ailing ones.
Using the latest AAPS and ACP low backache guidelines, this visual and textual overview of the condition explains types of low back pain, causes, symptoms, treatment, management and prevention. The 20" x 26" (51 x 66 cm) examination-room anatomy poster depicts a human figure with pain, numbness and tingling radiating into the leg (radiculopathy). Sagittal view of lower spine is shown with tumor of the spinal cord, bone spur impinging on spinal nerves, sciatica, compression fractures, and herniated disc.
Anterior view of the lower spine and pelvis shows tumors, infections, degenerative diseases, ankylosing spondylitis, sacroiliitis, arthritis and intrapelvic mass. Correct postures and techniques to avoid low back pain are discussed. ©2008
