If you have been experiencing back pain, you are not alone. It's estimated that eight out of ten people will have this experience, and worldwide low back pain is the top cause of disability and is among the most frequent reasons why people miss work.
Back Pain is Common, But Not Always the Same
In most cases, back pain is not a sign of a serious condition, such as arthritis, fracture, infection, or cancer. Most often, the causes are mechanical, which means there is a good chance that treatment, such as chiropractic care, physical therapy, massage therapy, or sports therapy may be effective in reducing pain and limiting the recurrence of future flare-ups.
At Balanced Health Medical we apply a range of expertise in order to treat back and neck pain as well as many other conditions including headaches, sports injuries, and accident-related injuries.
Causes of Back Pain
Back pain often occurs due to problems with the spine, which is made up of joints and bones called vertebrae, ligaments that hold the bones and muscles together, and discs that provide the space and cushioning that the bones and joints need. A disruption of any of this may result in back pain and can occur anywhere along the spinal column including the lower back (lumbar spine, coccyx, and sacrum), middle back (thoracic spine, or the neck (cervical spine). Some of the reasons for back pain can stem from
- Muscle Strain
- Ligament Strain
- A Bulging, Ruptured, or Herniated Disc
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Compressed Nerves
- Dislocation or Fracture
A number of behaviors and circumstances can play a role in why you are in pain including
- A specific accident or fall
- Poor posture or sleeping position
- The Aging Process
- Heavy Lifting
- or other trauma
