Do You Have Back Pain?

A back pain injury can be caused by a broad range of factors. Car accidents, workplace injuries, sports, slip and falls and spinal medical conditions can all be the root causes of back pain injury. Common back injuries include muscle strains, muscle sprain, herniated disc, bulging disc and degenerative disc disease. Back strains in Parker CO occur when there is an injury to the tendons or muscles. The tendons or muscles are torn or twisted. A back strain occurs when the ligaments are torn. Typically the pain from back strain and back sprain worsens with movement, and there are muscle spasms and a decreased range of motion of the joint. It’s often difficult to walk, bend or stand straight.

With a herniated disc, the inner gel of the spinal disc actually seeps out into the spinal canal and can irritate the spinal components, such as nerves and tendons. A herniated disc often presents with pain in the lower back. If the disc material impinges on the sciatic nerve, sciatica can develop. Sciatica pain often presents with pain in the lower back which radiates to the buttocks and legs. The lumbar discs span from L1 to L6. When weakened, they can begin to bulge and cause numbness and tingling in the legs, lower back pain, muscle spasm and muscle weakness.

Other conditions like spinal stenosis and hip bursitis can also result in back pain. Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the spinal canal, which increases compression of the spine’s components. Hip bursitis causes swelling and pain in the joints of the hip, which can radiate to the lower back.

The back is an intricate structure of bone, nerves and muscle, which are supported by cartilage, tendons, and ligaments, and fed by a network of blood vessels and nerves. In addition, the lumbar back region bears much of the body’s weight during physical activities, such as lifting, walking and running. Just the typical daily routine can cause back sprain and back strain.
