What You Need to Know About Back Pain

Back Pain and Orthopedic Care Options

What Causes Painful Back Pain?

Almost everyone will experience back pain at least once in their lifetimes. For others, they experience chronic pain that lasts a lifetime. The good news is that back pain can be treated effectively with chiropractic and physical therapy. Once your practitioner has diagnosed your health condition they’ll create a low back pain treatment by orthopedic and physical therapy plan for you.

If back pain is new to you and you can’t figure out a cause, here are some of the most common causes of back pain in humans.

Back Pain Due to Inactivity

Our early ancestors never sat in desks for eight or nine hours a day starting at a bright screen, then another two hours a day in commute, plus another four in front of the television. Yet that’s exactly what most of us do at least five days a week. The human body was designed to be standing up and moving around for a greater amount of the day. Today we no longer need to hunt and gather food, and now all that sitting is causing us to have sore backs.

Back Pain Due to Health Conditions

Many diseases and health conditions can place stress on our bodies. Many diabetics have sore backs due to inactivity and malfunctioning pancreases. There is a wide range of neurological disorders too, including MS, which can cause pain in the head, neck, and back. Even something temporary, such as influenza, can place stress on the back when you cough excessively for days on end.

Back Pain from Pregnancy

Pregnancy can also cause back pain, as women are now carrying around several extra pounds. All of the weight is placed on the lower back. Some of this weight even places stress on the bladder, kidneys, and bowels which further increases discomfort.

Back Pain from Injuries

We may want to brag about how we saved the game by leaping for the ball, but the truth is that most people injure their backs from bad falls. Even though winter ice conditions can be a hazard for people, most falls occur right at home. Spills land on floors and aren’t mopped up right away. People think they can get a ladder and clean the gutters or change a lightbulb. The next thing that happens is they fall and hurt their back.

As we age, we’re more susceptible to all types of injuries. You may wake up in the morning and have no idea why, but you need the best back pain remedy.

Even repetitive stress injuries can impact the back. Gardening, crafts, and even cooking can place stress on your back if you don’t change your motions or positions.

If you’re interested in low back pain treatment by orthopedic and physical therapy please give our clinic a call. We’ll first diagnose the cause of back pain, then work out the best back pain remedy and treatment plan for you. Yes, you may be getting older, but you can still live in comfort.
