Alder We all know that physical and psychological abuse can be a terrifying thing to experience, in any relationship.

A comprehensive guide to the new science of treating lower back pain

Cathryn Jakobson Ramin’s back pain started when she was 16, on the day she flew off her horse and landed on her right hip. For the next four decades, Ramin says her back pain was like a small rodent nibbling at the base of her spine. The aching left her bedridden on some days and made it difficult to work, run a household, and raise her two boys. By 2008, after Ramin had exhausted what seemed like all her options, she elected to have a “minimally invasive” nerve decompression procedure.Read More

What I found surprised me: Many of these approaches really do seem to help, though often with modest effects. But when you compare even those small benefits with the harm we’re currently doing while medically “treating” back pain, the horror of the status quo becomes clear. “No one dies of low back pain,” one back pain expert, University of Amsterdam assistant professor Sidney Rubinstein, summed up, “but people are now dying from the treatment.” Mainstream medicine has failed people with chronic back pain Lower back pain is one of the top reasons peopleRead More

For example, when you compare people with the same MRI results showing the same back injury — bulging discs, say, or facet joint arthritis — some may experience terrible chronic pain while others report no pain at all. AndRead More

Researchers in this 2016 review of the research on exercise for chronic nonspecific low back pain summarized exercise’s range of benefits, including these pretty amazing findings: “Aerobic exercise for 20 min on a cycle ergometer at 70% peak oxygen uptake reduced the pain perception for more than 30 min for patients with [chronic low back pain].” “Improving the flexibility of the lumbar spine and hamstrings can significantly reduce [chronic low back pain] by 18.5%–58%.” “Core stabilization programs have been shown to significantly reduce [chronic low back pain] by 39%–76.8%, and a muscularRead More


How Borderline Personality Disorder Makes a Breakup Feel Like the End of the World

“You were the happiest kid,” my mom commented as we flipped through the pages of my fourth-grade diary. There was no doubt about that. Every entry was full of musings only a carefree child could have. But the cheerful anecdotes about playground politics, crushes and secret handshakes turned into emotional ramblings about the sudden betrayal by my friends. I wrote extensively about how they had started to ignore me, gossip behind my back and exclude me from our usual shenanigans. My stomach tightened when I saw the words “I WISHRead More


How Borderline Personality Disorder Makes a Breakup Feel Like the End of the World

I was confused and heartbroken because I remembered him telling me I was the “love of his life” just the week before. The next morning, he sent an apologetic text claiming he did love me and wanted us to stay together. I was elated yet doubtful he truly meant it. The thought drove me “crazy,” and I asked him repeatedly to be honest about his feelings for me. IRead More
