Why Back Pain Sucks More Than Johnny Depp’s The Lone Ranger
Remember Johnny Depp’s The Lone Ranger? You probably don’t because very few people claim to have watched it. This 2013 film, which completely miscast Johnny Depp as a Native American, was one of the greatest Hollywood flops of all times. It is certainly one of Disney’s biggest failures.
The movie got a rating of 31 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Well, nobody liked Johnny Depp wearing one of those ridiculous costumes and playing another over-the-top character. Yes, The Pirates of the Caribbean was great, really, as Depp found out, you can’t repeat the same act again and again.
The film did not even cover its marketing costs and sent Depp’s career on a precipitous decline. Depp is yet to recover from the failure, and at his age, it now looks likely that his career is over. His name is now toxic in Hollywood circles.
So, The Lone Ranger sucks, we can all agree on that. You know what else sucks? Back pain. In fact, if you’ve suffered from back pain in the past, which you would, given that 85 percent of all adults suffer from severe back pain for at least 4 or 5 days in their lives. It is rare to meet someone in their 40s, 50s or 60s, who has never had a back pain.
Yes, back pain sucks! It really does. Back pain can range from a dull, constant ache that eats at you, to a sharp, vicious pain, which makes it impossible to move. Back pain can start quickly, when you fall or lift something heavy. It doesn’t take long for it to get worse.
On most occasions, lower back pain goes away within a few weeks, but there is a strong possibility of the pain recurring within a year. Most people who recover from back pain tend to have it again sooner or later.
Back pain makes you tired, irritable, less active, less productive and creates a number of other problems. It causes you to use your body in different ways. It makes you limp, or sit differently from usual. The pain can spread to the other parts of the body as well. Back pain creates biochemical changes in the body and leads to mental health issues such as stress, anxiety and depression.
2 out of 3 adults take time off work because of back pain at some stage. Lower back pain is the second most common reason for people to visit a doctor, after common cold and flu. While headache is the most common type of pain, back pain comes a close second.
There are a number of people, ordinary men and women, who have had their working career cut short by back pain. Many now live with back pain 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all through the year. It is a reality that they have to deal with. Back pain is one of the leading reasons for people to claim disability benefits under Social Security.
It is certainly not easy to live with chronic back pain. What makes it worse is that many doctors recommend narcotics and other pain killers to ease the pain. The relief gained through this is only temporary, but it has serious consequences. Narcotics and pain killers are among the leading causes of depression in people.
Tens of thousands of people die of accidental overdose of common pain killers every year. The legendary musician Prince died recently of an accidental overdose of opioid fentanyl, which he was taking for his chronic pain.
