Understanding Back Pain: A Closer Look
Back pain is a multifaceted issue with various contributing factors. While aging is often associated with back pain, sudden and acute symptoms can also arise from falls, auto accidents, and injuries. Conversely, many individuals experience a gradual onset of pain resulting from repetitive stress, strain, or the wear-and-tear associated with everyday movements like bending, lifting, twisting, and maintaining poor posture.
Both the upper and lower back are susceptible to different spine conditions. Upper back pain, more likely stemming from muscle strains, spasms, joint degeneration, and compression fractures, differs from lower back pain, which may arise due to:
- Muscle strains
- Overuse injuries
- Herniated discs
- Misaligned vertebrae
- Spinal stenosis
- Degenerative disc disease
In cases of back pain, the underlying issue often involves pressure on the spinal nerves.
Accompanying Symptoms and Effective Treatment
Back pain is frequently accompanied by stiffness and limited spinal mobility. Pinched nerves can trigger pain and tingling sensations that radiate along nerve pathways, potentially leading to arm or leg discomfort.
In instances of severe nerve damage, numbness and muscle weakness in the affected area may occur. This can lead to difficulties in walking or performing daily tasks such as writing or grasping objects.
At Jenkins Chiropractic, we offer comprehensive care for back pain. Dr. Sean Jenkins conducts a thorough musculoskeletal assessment to identify the source of your pain. He delves into your medical history, symptoms, pain triggers, and factors that exacerbate or alleviate your discomfort.
