Back Pain by Seilish

Back Pain

The back is without doubt the most important part of human body. It comprises of muscles, nerves, bones and various soft tissues. Every movement of a human body depends on it. The lower back carries most of the body weight and undergoes many stresses. As it is crucial for every movement of the body, it is vulnerable to various pains and injuries ranging from mild to severe.

Every person experiences back pain at least once in life. Improper body posture, herniated disk where disk material presses on a nerve, lifting heavy weights, changes in spine due to aging, dislocation of vertebrae, narrowing of space around the spinal cord and nerve roots due arthritis and bone growth, spinal tumor, damage of bones, back muscles and ligaments- all these can cause back pain. Sometimes, an accumulation of stress leads to back pain. At times, the exact cause of the pain is unknown. Hence, it is very important to seek expert help when you experience back pain. In most cases, back pain can be prevented by simple home treatment. Proper body mechanics can treat back pain within a few days or weeks and restore it to normal condition. Even though self-treatment takes several weeks to restore your back you will experience improvement within a few days. In case the pain doesn’t decrease in a few days, you must take an expert’s opinion to avoid serious conditions later. You may want to seek medical help when the pain is severe and constant, particularly while sleeping, spreads to legs and causes fever, acute bladder problems, loss of weight, abdominal pain, weakness of both legs and so on.

Chiropractic treatment has been best known for treating back pain since its introduction in 1895. Chiropractors believe that the nervous system can be affected by biochemical and structural imbalances. As our nervous system is closely related to the spine, chiropractors discover and restore spinal disorder through chiropractic treatments. Spinal manipulation is ideal for the early treatment of certain types of back pain.

The best part of this treatment is that chiropractors do not use drugs. Nevertheless, they may recommend patients to physicians when required. As chiropractors identify the disorder first and restore proper spinal structure accordingly, this treatment lowers pressure on highly sensitive neurological tissue. Thus health of the patient improves tremendously. Because of this advantage, patients seeking chiropractic treatment for back pain is on the rise.

Chiropractic treatment for back pain has evolved over time. Hence it would be useful to update yourself about the new concepts and techniques related to chiropractic.
