If you suffer from back pain, you’re not alone. “80 percent of Americans will experience an episode of low back pain at some time in their lives.” according to the UNC School of Medicine. This common condition makes life difficult for millions of people every day. “31 million Americans experience back pain at any given time”, American Chiropractic Association.
Back Pain is so common because it can be triggered by things we do in our everyday life. Pain can start after lifting too much weight, reaching, twisting or bending improperly. Forceful or awkward movements might trigger Back Pain as well. Today, prolonged sitting is a big reason the number of people dealing with this condition is on the rise.
You might experience Back Pain when you walk, lay down, stand up or sit too long. The pain may be very sudden with muscle spasms or cramps. Your back might be sore to the touch or tender. But Back Pain is not easily connected to medical signs that can be observed in an x-ray. So it’s possible to feel serious pain even though an x-ray shows no spinal abnormalities. Symptoms might not be physically detectable, but the pain is very real and it can be debilitating.
Back Pain Causes
Sprain or Strain
You can easily suffer a sprain or strain in your back during typical daily activity. Sprains occur when ligaments are stretched or torn. A strain is a stretch or a tear in muscle or tendon. The pain from both can be sharp or dull, a tingling feeling or burning sensation.
Vertebral Subluxation occurs when the spinal column is misaligned. The misaligned vertebrae creates interferences in your nervous system. These interferences can cause Back Pain along with many other possible negative effects in the body. Left untreated, Vertebral Subluxation may get worse and it can impair proper nerve functions.
If a discs in between spinal bones protrudes outside the normal radius it is a Herniated Disc. When fluid material in the center of a disc pushes through the hard covering a herniation occurs. The fluid impacting a nerve root creates pain and discomfort. Aging is a top reason for this condition as natural deterioration takes a toll on the discs in the spine. A Herniated Disc may also occur due to an injury.
