What is Back Pain?
Back pain is a common condition that affects the lower part of your spine, specifically in the lumbar region. In most cases there are multiple causes for back pain and no single diagnosis can be made without further testing or examination. Commonly, people who experience back pain will have problems with their bones (osteoporosis), muscle spasms, and ligament sprains.
What are the Symptoms of Back Pain?
Back pain can come in many different forms and may present as a dull ache or as sharp shooting pains that interrupt your functioning daily life such as working, socializing with friends or family members for long periods of time, sleeping comfortably at night, walking, or even sitting at your desk for long periods of time.
How is Back Pain Diagnosed?
The most common way to diagnose a person with back pain is through an MRI scan that allows the doctor to identify what type of injury has occurred and whether it needs surgery or not. The other option would be x-rays which can show if there is a break in the spine but not as clear of an image about which part of your back needs treatment.
What Treatments are Available for Chronic Back Pain?
The first step to curing chronic pain would be identifying what type of condition it is, such as arthritis, sciatica, or bulging disks.
After identifying the condition, there are a variety of treatment options available to get them back on their feet. When it comes to surgery for chronic pain, doctors will typically only recommend this as a last resort because of its high risk and long recovery process.
There are many other treatments that can be done without surgery or medication such as physical therapy, chiropractic care, massage therapy, and acupuncture.
