Understanding Back Pain

& Back Injuries

 

The back supports much of the body’s weight, which makes it highly susceptible to injuries. A simple lifting of an object done improperly could result in a strain or hyperextension. When coupled with other conditions such as depression or stress, lower back pain can linger even longer.

Back strain can cause a disc in your spinal column to rupture or bulge, a condition known as a herniated disc. This bulging disc can then put pressure on a nerve leading to pain in other parts of your body, or even impairment of bodily functions.

As we age, our bone strength and muscle flexibility decreases. These conditions make it easier for an injury to occur. Conditions such as arthritis or osteoporosis can contribute to the weakening of the spine.

Additionally, the discs that act as cushions between the vertebrae lose fluid over time, and don’t protect the bones as well. Some of the causes of back pain brought about by a condition you were born with. Some of these include:
 

  • Spinal stenosis: A gradual narrowing of the tube in your spinal column that holds all of the nerves in your back.

  • Spondylitis: Chronic infections or inflammations that develop and cause stiffness in the joints of the spine.

  • Scoliosis: Abnormal curvature of the spine.
     

Other causes of back pain include:

  • Poor posture

  • Obesity

  • Viral infections

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Buildup of scar tissue from previous injuries

Treating Back Problems

If back pain is beginning to affect the quality of your life and keeping you from doing the things you love, we can help.

You will begin your visit with a consultation to talk about any factors that may be contributing to your condition including: your health history, physical activities, and the type of pain you are experiencing.

The doctor may perform a physical exam to monitor your range of motion. In cases of chronic pain, an x-ray, CT scan, or MRI may be necessary to seek out internal factors.  Once diagnosed, we can determine if stem cell therapy is a good fit for you.
