Back Pain Treatment Doreen

What is back pain?

Back pain is an extremely common condition with up to 80% of the population experiencing back pain at some time during the lives. Although the underlying pathology of low back pain is usually not serious, with the vast majority of patients recovering within 6 weeks, it is a significant cause of pain in the community and can have a considerable impact on people’s day to day lives.

Back pain can originate from nerves, muscles, joints, bones or other structures in the spine. There are different types of back pain such as acute pain, chronic pain, and neuropathic pain.

Types of Back Pain

Acute pain can last up to six months or is pain that is directly related to tissue damage. The longer the pain goes for the more susceptible it is to developing into chronic pain. Acute back pain is often caused by a sudden injury, such as lifting a heavy object or taking a fall. It typically goes away on its own within a few days or weeks. However, if the pain is severe or persists for more than a few weeks, you may need further treatment.

Chronic back pain is defined as pain that persists for 12 weeks or longer, even after an initial injury or cause has been treated. Chronic back pain often requires a more comprehensive treatment approach than acute pain. Chronic pain can be due to an injury. Structural spine conditions such as degenerative disc disease can cause ongoing pain until successfully treated.

Chronic pain can be influenced by ongoing pain signal input to the nervous system, lack of exercise, person’s perception of the pain and depression and anxiety.

Types of acute back pain:

  • Strains: When the muscles and tendons in your back are stretched or torn, this is called a strain. Strains can be caused by lifting a heavy object, sudden movement, or poor posture.
  • Sprains: A sprain occurs when the ligaments in your back are stretched or torn. Like strains, sprains can be caused by lifting a heavy object, sudden movement, or poor posture.
  • Fractures: A fracture is a break in one of the bones in your back. fractures can be caused by car accidents, falls, or other high-impact trauma.
  • Dislocations: A dislocation occurs when the bones in your back are forced out of their normal position. Dislocations are usually caused by car accidents or falls.
  • Herniated discs: A herniated disc occurs when the cushioning between the bones in your spine is ruptured. This can be caused by degeneration of the discs, lifting a heavy object, or sudden movement.

Types of chronic back pain:

  • Failed back surgery syndrome
  • Chronic back pain without a clearly determined cause
  • Fibromyalgia

Neuropathic pain is usually unrelated to the original injury or condition and certain nerves send out pain messages to the brain even though there is no ongoing message.

Back pain treatment options include physical therapy, exercises, splints or braces and lifestyle changes. If your experiencing back pain call our clinic today and book in to see our professionals as soon as possible.
