Post-traumatic stress is one of the major problems that prevent many people from doing work and other important daily tasks. Back pain - can affect the upper, middle, or lower back.

The human body is made up of a complex structure of muscles, ligaments, tendons, and bones that work together to support the body and enable us to function. Thus, pain is one of the leading causes of disability worldwide, and according to research, an estimated 31 million Americans experience less pain every year.

DEFINITION

Back pain can begin at the lower part of the neck and reach the pelvis and sacrum.

Back pain is a symptom of pain in the upper, middle, and lower spine - around the muscles and ligaments. Low back pain may be associated with the lumbar spine, discs in between the vertebrae, ligaments near the spinal cord and nerves, lumbar muscles, internal abdomen, pelvis, and skin around the lumbar region.

This can be related to trauma, activity, and some illnesses. Back pain can affect people of all ages for different reasons. With age, people are more likely to develop lower back pain due to factors such as previous occupation and degenerative disc disease.

SYMPTOMS

Back pain depends on the area and structures that have irritated and affected the brain. At Bergenfield Physical Therapy, we believe that back pain is associated with a lack of function. Back pain can be painful, dull, and sometimes even cause anxiety. Sometimes back pain can cause numbness and tingling in the legs - in this case; medical attention is needed. The pain often goes away without treatment.

The main symptom of back pain is pain somewhere on the back, and sometimes on the buttocks and legs. Some back problems can cause pain in other parts of the body, depending on the nerves involved.

CAUSES

The human back is made up of muscles, ligaments, tendons, discs, and bones that work together to support the body and allow us to move. However, there are many different causes of back pain. This could be due to functional or structural damage; such as muscle spasms, muscle disruption, muscle weakness, core discomfort, arthritis, disc stiffness, disc herniation, and many other issues that are checked by Bergenfield Physical Therapy during the first consultation. Other reasons:

  • Developmental dysfunctions
