What Is Causing Your Lower Back Pain?
The spine within your back houses a vital part of your body –the nervous system. The nervous system controls the functioning of the rest of the body. There are approximately 30 nerves that run along the spine and extend to the other parts of the body. These nerves may become irritated, pinched, or inflamed and send pain to various areas of the body. Additionally, when these nerves are not functioning properly, the messages that are sent from the brain become disrupted and can affect your body’s ability to work properly.
Curious what may be causing nerve irritation? The three main causes of this irritation include trauma from an accident or fall, degeneration that happen in the bones or muscles surrounding the spine, or when the cushiony discs between the vertebrae bulge. When this bulging of the disc takes place, the disc is pinched by the vertebrae and is pushed out to one side. The disc then puts pressure on the nerves surrounding the spine and pain results. These discs can become damaged from injury or due to age and the center of the disc leaks out and the disc essentially flattens and causes the bones to rub against one another. When you experience bone degeneration, which include conditions such as osteoarthritis, bones spurs may appear and reduce your motion in the affected area. Lastly, when you experience trauma, it may be the result of overexerting when twisting or lifting, not just when you are in an accident.
Is Relief for Low Back Pain Possible?
There are several different treatment options that are traditionally used include medications, bed rest, exercises that target the area in pain, and surgery. These options don’t solve the problem that is causing your pain, but rather temporarily mask the symptoms of your pain. When you use treatments, such as exercises, you actually make the problem worse by overexerting the muscles. The other end of the treatment spectrum, bed rest, is also harmful and can result in your muscles weakening. Surgery is a very permanent option for treatment where bones are removed or transfused together. Many who choose surgery as a treatment option experience pain again a few years after the initial surgery and some end up in surgery again.
