What is back pain?

Back pain is discomfort that can appear in any part of the back. The different parts of the back are the thoracic, cervical, or lumbar spine. 

Back pain can be chronic and is commonly related to spine-related problems, such as a ruptured or herniated disc, whiplash, osteoporosis, degenerative joint disease, and/or muscle or ligament sprain /strain. Generally, the pain can be acute, especially if it is ignored over a while. 

Back pain is also common after a fall or lifting heavy objects. It is essential to be careful about how you use your back during work or home activities.

Symptoms of back pain

Of all the types of back pain, the most frequent is lower back pain, known as lumbago. Some of the symptoms include:

  • Dull ache
  • Sharp shooting pain
  • Stabbing pain

With complex spine disorders, symptoms can include:

  • Numbness and tingling
  • Pain in the neck, low back, and arms
  • Radiating pain symptoms to the legs and feet in severe cases

Common Cause of Back Pain

Common causes of back pain include improper lifting, poor posture, lack of regular exercise,  ruptured disc, back joint dysfunction, arthritis, and muscle spasms. A stress fracture or disease rarely causes it. Even when you have minor back pain, it is highly recommended to see a chiropractor. Early treatment often prevents long-term problems.

Long Term Problems Due To Untreated Back Pain

Ignoring back pain may seem like the best option right now, but there is a risk that the frequency and severity of exacerbations will increase over time. There is also an increased risk of degenerative disc disease with symptoms left unchecked and untreated. In some cases, symptoms of back pain can be from cancer and other serious illnesses.

Back Pain Treatment

Treatment of low back pain can range from bed rest to surgery.

Among the standard therapeutic options are:

  • Manual spinal manipulation
  • Mobilization
  • Bed rest, especially when the pain is short-term
  • Spinal exercises
  • Traction
  • In severe cases, surgery

Suggestions For Pain Relief At Home

  • Pay close attention to your posture
  • Sleep on your back with a pillow under your knees or on your side with a pillow between your legs
