Finnish driver Kimi Raikkonen will race in the Singapore GP despite suffering a back problem that left him 13th on the grid, BBC Sport reported on September 21st. The article, “Singapore GP: Kimi Raikkonen expected to race despite back pain,” noted that usually driving frees up Raikkonen’s long-standing back problem, but he needed a pain-killing injection before qualifying after complaining of ‘very bad’ discomfort in final practice. Raikkonen commented, ‘It was good we drove in qualifying in the end but not the most nice. We will race and see what happens.’ (http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/formula1/24190884)

With this in mind, Yourwellness Magazine explored the different kinds of back pain, as well as ways to prevent them. According to Yourwellness Magazine, ‘Back pain is a common problem that affects most people at some point in their life. It usually feels like an ache, tension or stiffness in your back. The pain can be triggered by bad posture while sitting or standing, bending awkwardly, or lifting incorrectly. Back pain is not generally caused by a serious condition and, in most cases, it gets better within 12 weeks. It can usually be successfully treated by taking painkillers and keeping mobile.’ (http://www.yourwellness.com/topics/menu/health-a-z/information-of-back-pain/#sthash.TbsfYjKL.dpuf)

Yourwellness Magazine explained that although backache is most common in the lower back, it can be felt anywhere along the spine. Yourwellness Magazine noted that the different kinds of back pain include neck pain, whiplash, shoulder pain, frozen shoulder, ankylosing spondylitis, slipped disc and sciatica. Yourwellness Magazine commented that back pain sufferers should try to remain as active as possible and continue with daily activities, as being inactive for long periods is bad for the back. Yourwellness Magazine added that painkillers and hot or cold compression packs may help reduce the pain, while a positive mindset also aids a speedy recovery.
