Why You Should Never Take Back Pain Lightly
Wednesday, September 19, 2018

The backbone or your back would be the most important thing in your body right now. This is because whether you’re sitting lying down or standing while reading this you’re making full use of it. One cannot walk without it. Your back is one of the most complex parts of your body as well - a perfectly assembled jenga with a combination of bones (vertebrae), discs, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

These are all there basically to ensure balance, mobility and support for every organ and component of your body. Other than this the back’s muscles are also responsible for the protection of your spinal cord and the bundle of nerves that surround it. Any kind of stress that would leave its impact on you almost daily is dangerous. This ends up making the back susceptible to injury. This can be in many forms and most importantly it can also lead to severe pains and injuries like developing sciatica.

Genetic factors tend to play a critical role here too as they contribute to genetic spinal deterioration. This means the weakening of the spine due to genetic deformities. Statistically a back pain is considered to be the second most likely reason for your visit to a physician. This is especially true in the case of the United States. Almost 85 percent of the people that have visited a physician have claimed to have had some rather sharp back pain.

Types of Back Pain

There are two basic categories defined for classifying pain these categories are “acute” or “chronic”.
  • Acute - This is the kind of back pain that is commonly called sharp. It tends to last for short periods but with increasing or decreasing intensities. As a matter of fact, acute back pain can wake you up in the middle of the night with rude awakening.
  • Chronic- This is the kind of back pain which extends over durations of up to 12 weeks and is often defined as a seething, burning, irritating or deep rooted pain.
Chronic pain is usually a result of deterioration of the body over time. As the body ages it tends to get weaker and less composed. This obviously does not exclude the back. And the back being one of the most used parts of the body are subjected to a lot of wear and tear. Chronic pain has a variety of treatments and treatment schedules which can take a lot longer than expected. Alternatively, you can approach the issue with a set of conservative, nonoperative measures. These would not be able to last a long time but would be able to provide temporary relief. This relief is therefore able to allow you to sleep and function normally.

Treatments of Back Pain
  • Acute back pain treatment usually consists of a series of physical therapy session and in cases where people would need a little extra boos they are injected with epidural steroids. If these treatments fail, surgery may be offered.
  • Chronic back pain responds less well to physical therapy and epidural steroid injections but these treatments may still be indicated depending on the problem being treated.
