Back Pain

Back Pain

Back pain is a common issue that can result from various factors. Some common causes of back pain include:

Muscle Strain: Overuse, poor posture, or lifting heavy objects improperly can strain the muscles and ligaments in the back.

Herniated Disc: The soft, gel-like centre of a spinal disc may protrude and irritate the nerves nearby.

Osteoarthritis: degenerative changes of the spine’s facet joints can lead to pain and stiffness.

Sciatica: Compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve, often causing pain radiating down the leg.

Spinal Stenosis: Narrowing of the spinal canal, putting pressure on the spinal cord and nerves.

Scoliosis: Abnormal curvature of the spine, which can lead to discomfort.

Musculoskeletal Issues: Conditions like fibromyalgia or myofascial pain syndrome can contribute to chronic back pain.

Lifestyle factors, such as lack of exercise, obesity, and poor ergonomics, can also play a role.

Management often involves rest, physical therapy, medications, and in some cases, surgical intervention.

It’s crucial to consult with a healthcare professional for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan based on the specific cause of the back pain.
