It is estimated that 28 million adults in the UK are living with chronic pain and research has shown that CBD is an effective method of pain relief to combat it. Back pain is among some of the most debilitating chronic pains that people are forced to live with every day with no prospect of recovery.
That’s because while back pain is exceedingly common, it is equally challenging to diagnose. We believe that’s why we’re seeing a growing number of people turning to CBD for back pain.
Back pain is also a personal experience for everyone. What may be mild back pain to one person can feel severe and overwhelming to another. That means the same condition can require completely different kinds and levels of treatment for different people, making it harder for doctors to treat with modern medicines.
This is another reason it’s becoming more common for people to turn to CBD for their back pain.
The specific source of back pain can also be challenging to identify, and there are many potential underlying causes of back pain:
- Problems may occur within anatomical structures, such as spinal nerve roots, lower back muscles, vertebral bones and joints, intervertebral discs, and/or organs in the abdominal cavity.
- In other cases, your nerves may send abnormal pain signals to your brain, resulting in neuropathic back pain.
- Back pain may also be influenced by psychosocial factors, such as stress, depression, and/or anxiety.
However, these are all conditions research has shown that CBD could help with.
