Chronic Back Pain or Lower Back Pain, or Spine Pain – You don’t have to live with it!
There are many different types of back pain – from a dull, persistent ache to sharp, sudden spikes of pain – that can make it hard to move or be comfortable while at rest. Back pain is often triggered by an incident such as lifting something to heavy or a fall and can then get worse over time.
Your risk for back pain rises as you get older. Being in poor physical shape, having excess weight, and stress can also contribute to back pain.
Many people with back pain are experiencing mechanical problems involving the interaction of the muscles and nerves in their back and their spine. These can be caused by a breakdown of the spinal discs, spasms, muscle tension, pinched nerves and ruptured discs.
The back and spine are the frame upon which the rest of the body rests. So, when something is out of balance in your back, it can quickly lead to other problems in other parts of your body, including headaches, neck aches, tingling or numbness in the arms and legs, and other symptoms. Fortunately, back pain responds very well to IDD Therapy® treatment. To read a more extensive sheet on back pain, view this information provided by the NIH’s Institute of Neurological Disorders.
