Millions of women around the world find that back pain is a constant thorn in their day to day lives. Simple everyday activities such as walking, exercising and bending over can become increasingly difficult because of this kind of pain. Here, cosmetic surgery specialists Bella Vou outlines some of the most common causes of back pain, including minor sprains, strains, weight gain and having large breasts.
Sprains and strains
As our bodies age, our joints and bones become weaker and sprains and injuries to our backs become increasingly common. Although minor sprains and injuries to the back are painful, most can heal over time.
However, having large breasts can cause long lasting pain and damage to the back that requires much more than time to recover properly. Clinical research has shown that around one million women nationwide suffer the painful and distressing side effects of having large breasts.
Women have large breasts can experience symptoms such as:
- Neck pain
- Numbness in the fingers
- Shortness of breath
Side effects of having large breasts
There are many side effects associated with having breasts that are too large. This is because there is not enough support from the surrounding muscles and the rest of the body. Oversized breasts can make it very difficult to maintain a good posture, which can lead to severe back pain and spinal deformity later in life.
Furthermore, many women feel very disappointed with their figures as a result of the size of their bust. It can cause them to have low self-esteem if they receive unwanted or unnecessary attention and are in constant discomfort. In turn, this can result in feelings of anxiety, embarrassment and depression.
However, it’s not all doom and gloom. There are many ways to effectively relieve back pain. For example, there are various over-the-counter medications that can reduce discomfort. There are also more permanent solutions, such as back and breast surgery.
As well as relieving severe back pain, there are many other benefits connected to having a surgical breast reduction, including:
- Having a more natural and youthful appearance
- Having breasts that are smaller, lighter and uplifted
- Not experiencing pain or discomfort during exercise and other day to day activities
- Being able to find suitable and better fitting clothing
- Improved self-confidence
If you are experiencing back pain as a result of having large breasts, then having a cosmetic procedure such as a breast reduction could be life changing. Breast reduction surgery can significantly enhance the way you look and feel by improving your self-confidence and effectively relieving severe back pain with permanent results.
