Most people experience back pain at some point in their lives. It can range from mild muscular strain, to debilitating pain that completely disrupts your life. We have provided useful information about various spine conditions below. We have added them as a resource to our patients and the community. Please do not hesitate to give us a call if you have any question, or to schedule an appointment.
Most back pain manifests in 3 different ways;
- Cervical Pain; which can affect the neck, upper back, shoulders, and arms
- Thoracic Pain; which can affect the mid back, chest, and abdomen
- Lumbar/Sacral Pain; which can affect the low back, hips, buttock, legs, and feet
Over many years, our neck and back are subjected to repeated stresses and minor injuries. This may not cause pain right away; however, the wear and tear can add up. It can eventually result in degeneration of the spine. Most neck and back pain occur because of these degenerative changes. Generally, the overall condition of the spine determines how fast you recover from an injury. It also determines whether your pain will become a chronic problem.
Other issues, such as mental stress, and poor posture can lead to neck and back pain as well. If you carry all your stress in your neck or back, you are not alone. Many of us unknowingly place stress on our spine; which can cause these areas to become stiff, tight, and painful. This can also lead to unbalanced compensation and chronic issues with posture.
