Back Pain in Casper

The back is a broad term that covers a large area of the body. It is made up of many tendons, ligaments, discs, muscles, and bones. Without a solid understanding of these different parts, it can be complicated to locate and address the source of the pain. The following explains some of the most common issues and their identifying features. It also explains how chiropractic medicine can help to resolve them. This is a general guideline to help you in your quest for effective treatment, but we highly recommend that you seek a professional opinion to properly diagnose these issues.


Disc Bulges and Herniations

Disc bulges and herniations are conditions in which the outer edges of the discs, located between the vertebrae, are damaged. This causes the jelly-like center to bulge or be pushed out. This is a surprisingly common issue and it is often, but not always, very painful. Many people who have this condition feel nothing at all. The quality and intensity of it, for those who experience pain, depends on the type and position of the herniation. If the damaged disc is irritating a surrounding nerve, shooting or stabbing pain along with weakness in the legs is often severe.

It is important that this issue is properly identified and promptly treated to avoid further damage. A chiropractor in Fairlawn will thoroughly assess your back to determine the extent of the issue and the appropriate treatment to prevent worsening of the herniation, and provide relief from the associated pain.


Subluxations

Subluxation is a medical term describing a misalignment in the vertebral column. There are a wide variety of causes, including physical stress, trauma, and toxins. Subluxations are often quite painful and can disrupt normal movement. Subluxations are one of the most commonly overlooked contributors to back pain. Chiropractors are trained to identify and correct this issue using non-invasive adjustment techniques.


Muscular Sprains and Tendon or Ligament Strains

Strains and sprains most typically occur when we engage in tasks that our body is not accustomed to, or when we are involved in an accident. Lifting while twisting, or stretching past one's limits are common causes to strains and sprains of the back. These can be extremely painful and are often accompanied by swelling and bruising of the surrounding area. Strains and sprains in the back tend to involve changes to the alignment of the spine and typically respond well to chiropractic care.


Back pain is common, but not normal

There are a number of injuries, misalignments, and conditions that cause back pain. The back is complex and that is because it is required to absorb stress while moving.

  • Tendons, ligaments, discs, muscles, and bones make up the spine which surrounds and protects the spinal cord.
  • These can become irritated or damaged resulting in pain.

Sometimes it takes a severe trauma, but more commonly it is from minor repetitive stress, which causes the most damage.

  • This is why it may be hard to relate it to a particular event.
  • Now physical injury is not the only way to hurt your back.

Conditions such as obesity, arthritis, kidney stones, and urinary tract infections have been linked to lower back pain.

There are a lot of possibilities and this is why it is important to get it checked out as soon as you can and be proactive with your back pain.
