Causes Of Back Pain
What is it that’s triggering your back pain? Whether you are an elite athlete, a weekend warrior, or somewhere in between, there is a strong chance that you will deal with back pain at some stage in your life. Why is that? Ironically, even everyday activities that you perform – whether jumping into your bed at night, slipping on your pair of shoes or sitting at the laptop – can affect your spine health. Most injuries are caused by sprains or strains, and such injuries are typically brought on by a new activity, an accident, or excessive lifting. Best to have the number of your Brisbane chiropractor on hand!
Here are some of the other major causes:
Ruptured Or Bulging Disks : Disks basically act as cushions between the vertebrae in the spine. At times the soft material inside these discs can rupture or bulge, and press on a nerve.
Osteoporosis : If your bone becomes brittle or porous, your spine’s vertebrae can form compression fractures, thus leading to severe back pain.
Spinal Stenosis : Did you know osteoarthritis can affect your lower back too? In some cases, arthritis prevalent in the spine can cause narrowing of the space all around the spinal cord. This condition is known as spinal stenosis.
Ligament Or Muscle Strain : Excessive heavy lifting may strain spinal ligaments and back muscles. Furthermore, if you are in bad physical condition, continuous strain on your back may lead to painful muscle spasms.
