This can be a tender topic.
Sometimes when people have been struggling with back pain for a while, it can start to affect their self-esteem.
Sometimes this is because they don’t feel as strong, powerful or accomplished as they used to.
Sometimes this is because they feel embarrassed that they can’t participate in sports, or play with their kids, or help their partner.
And sometimes it’s more tender. Back pain can affect the way that people feel attractive – or perhaps, less attractive than before.
It might be a simple reason such as not being able to do their favourite exercise, and their body is changing shape.
Or it might be more subtle, it’s about how they move. People can feel like they’re moving “like an old person”. They don’t feel as graceful or athletic as they used to.
People can feel self-conscious about having to move a certain way, or to sit a certain way.
It can also feel like they’ve lost their sponteneity. Like they’ve lost a bit of their spark.
