Common Injuries Causing Back Pain
The three most common areas that can cause low back pain are muscles, joints, and nerves. All three need to work together to keep the back healthy.
Muscular-related back pain can happen with everyday things like shoveling snow or bending too quickly. It can also happen with something more traumatic like a fall or a collision. When this happens the muscles often try to protect the area that has been strained.
Joint-related back pain can happen from a variety of conditions like arthritis or stenosis. When joints do not have enough space for the nerves to pass, or aren’t mobile enough to allow the muscles to move, it can also cause pain and dysfunction.
Nerve-related pain is often a culprit of either joints or muscular-related issues causing the nerves to not have enough space to move effectively. This can cause various issues, such as sciatica where nerves become inflamed and irritated.
Common Symptoms of Back Pain
- Aching or sharp pain on one or both sides of the lower back.
- Pain going down the leg.
- Difficulty walking or standing.
- Decreased ability to bend or sit.
- Stiffness throughout the lower back.
How to Treat Back Pain
Back pain is addressed at several different levels from muscular to nerve related injuries. The first step in treating your back pain is to identify the source of the pain. Using a combination of manual therapies, such as muscle and joint specific treatments, can help improve your pain.
Your physical therapist will also help you understand why this pain is happening based on your specific back injury to help improve your symptoms. The physical therapists at Pro Staff are experts in treating low back pain and will help you get back to your normal self.
Every back is different, so it is important to have a skilled physical therapist evaluate and treat any symptoms you may be having.
