You may have picked up your morning newspaper a million times the same way. You may have picked up your purse a hundred times today. You simply bend at the waist, keeping your legs straight, and pick up that simple item you need. But, today, your back hurts. It hurts badly, and now you don’t know what to do.
There is so much about the back that most people take for granted. Most people don’t give the back the full respect it deserves. Half of all people are clueless about the proper way to bend to prevent back pain. Our entire system relies on the back. So, it is best to keep it healthy. What appears to be a simple, uncomfortable, twist could be years of moving the wrong way. When the back finally reacts to years of mistreatment, it can be bad.
This scenario is more common than one would think. Back pain is a serious condition that affects millions. Sometimes when the person least expects it. Specialists say that 8 in 10 people will have back pain in their life. There are unlimited causes for back pain and depending on the location and the problem; there are just as many ways to treat it.
Back muscles are divided into a few separate groups. There are the extrinsic muscles, which are usually associated with the upper back. This muscle group typically is responsible for arms, neck, shoulder, and head movements. Then, there are the intrinsic muscles that work movements of the spinal cord and vertebrae. Each person’s back is different so the exact separation where one begins and the other ends will be different each time. However, there are general rules on what muscles take the heaviest beatings for each movement. There are also a few sub categories which deal with the depth of the layers of muscles. Generally speaking, when someone has back pain, it will begin in the muscle layers. Be that as it may, it is not recommended that you diagnose yourself. There are layers of nerves, ligaments, tendons, and bones that could also be the cause. There are even conditions that cause pain with no known origin of the pain.
The first thing you want to do is contact a health care specialist at the immediate notice of pain. This health care specialist can vary because there are a lot of options available to people today. In addition to that, back pain is a very complex process if one is searching for the exact cause. There are general practitioners who cover all types of pain. There are chiropractors who deal mainly with the spine. There are spine specialists, orthopedic surgeons, Neurologists, alternative practitioners, holistic doctors, and musculoskeletal doctors. With all the options, how will you know what to choose? The answer depends on the severity and location of the pain.
Did the pain start after an accident? Did the pain start at work? Did the pain start after completing a specific task? These are all questions you want to answer and tell your medical professional as you begin your journey to recovery.
