Treatment For Back Pain

 

Back pain sufferers know that whether it is a dull ache or a sharp and pain, it’s debilitating. We assume back pain is more common as you get older, however, as much as 80% of the population will experience back problems in their lifetime – regardless of their age.

 

Back pain may occur from a strain or other structural problems. Muscles and ligaments are strained with improper lifting techniques and sudden, awkward movements. A structural problem has several origins:

 

  • Ruptured discs
  • Sciatica
  • Arthritis
  • Abnormal curvature of the spine
  • Osteoporosis

Back pain can manifest as acute pain or chronic pain. Acute pain lasts less than 3-6 months and is often a result of a strain.

 

How to Get Rid of Back Pain

Chronic pain can cause ongoing discomfort usually from a structural condition. It is important to identify the form of back pain you are experiencing to find the solution that will get you back to living pain-free.
