The various causes of back pain

Back pain is an inevitable phenomenon that we have to face in our lives, sooner or later. Even if you are not sleepers stacker or loader, not a woman, in the hands of a lot of day-pound bags, not the Amateur gardener working in the garden the property of the spring sowing period, not an athlete weight lifting pain can't be avoided anyway. Only a miracle, it seems, of sitting, not straining the whole day in front of the computer, there is practically no load, but the end of the day starts the pain, lower back discomfort occurs in the neck, the shoulder area and shoulders. What's the problem? Why is there no reason for the back pain?

Why back pain how to treat

Shock wave therapy is one of the most effective treatment for back pain of different origin. The main advantage of this technique is considered to be fast, pain-syndrome. Only 4-5 sessions, then forget about the problem. We offer you to see how the treatment of back pain with shock wave therapy in the medical centres of Moscow.

In fact, the reason for the back pain a lot. The first was anatomical. The core design a lot of links, when upright, is very fragile: a longitudinal (compressive) and transverse load. Strictly vertical, it can only be the state of the voltage, if the goal is to tie strings, then pull them to the web simple, the strings to let go — an uncertain curve.

Something like this reminds of the spine: perform the role of the Central core, this remarkable bio-design of the human body, and the role of the tightening of the fibres finally the back muscles. Now imagine that the rod is still in place, the body, the internal organs, so poor fibers-the muscles have to withstand not only the weight, the spine, the rod, but the weight of the whole body, constantly.

Unwittingly came to the conclusion that you are indeed the creator of was conceived first Homo erectus, because "the fee for bipedalism" is pretty cumbersome. Open any medical reference, see "diseases of the musculoskeletal system" to check.

The most common cause of back pain

However, it is true to conclude that if your back hurts, then it's certainly something seriously sick is not worth it. More than 80% of the back pain may occur periodically, for the following reasons:

  • a muscle strain due to physical exertion
  • prolonged exposure of the spine in the same position while sleeping, sitting at the computer, transport, etc.
  • hypothermia in the back, to before the draft, the air-conditioning when they leave the warm room to the cold fresh air, cold bath.
  • old previously acquired, as well as poorly healed injuries (sprain, bruise)

A lot less back pain due to very severe diseases. What could be the reason? They are diverse, not always associated with damage to the spinal segments, and the resulting diseases.

Sometimes a person in some kind of a sick body, pain radiating back, for example:

  • when the kidney patients, the pain radiates to the lower back
  • gynecological diseases, in women, the pain radiates to the lumbosacralis
  • the presence in the cancer pain radiation to certain parts of the back

Therefore, before the treatment of back pain first, you must determine the real reason to conduct a thorough diagnosis of the presence of other possible diseases.

Chronic back pain


Always be careful that the chronic pain that is present almost always in remission. It's possible that I could be such diseases:

  1. Lower back pain arising from degenerative changes in the tissues of the spinal disc
  2. Scoliosis — curvature leading to disk displacement, and the damage to them nerve root
  3. The herniated disc to access the drive, the core of the spinal cord, or (even worse), the direction of the spinal cord
  4. Spondylolisthesis — slip of the upper vertebra lower as a consequence of deformation, the legs, the spine, the spine will be like a ladder, exposed rubber with
  5. Bechterew's disease (spondylitis), inflammation of, ligaments, joints, the immobility. Primarily affects men. The risk of this rare disease, the continuous development of the gradual recording of backbone to turn the internal organs: lungs, kidneys, heart, blood vessels, organs of the vision.
  6. The cancerous tumors in the spine may be primary, but most often occurs in the form of metastases to other organs. The percentage of the total number of caused by approximately one percent.
  7. Spinal infection tuberculosis, osteomyelitis, syphilis, and other diseases as a cause of the pain is extremely rare (0.01%)
  8. Compression fracture — a disease, unfortunately, relatively common (4%). The youth occurs mainly in athletes because of excessive loads, and injuries in the elderly— because it is the phenomenon due to which the vertebrae are more resistant to the own weight of the person.
  9. Muscle pain is a chronic due to permanent cooling, inflammation of muscle tissue

In all cases, after the treatment the pain and inflammation you need to treat the underlying disease that caused the pain.

The type of back pain: causes, treatment

The effective pain relief in back:

  1. Physiotherapy (exercises for back pain)
  2. Laser MLS (after the 2 sessions, the pain goes away)
  3. To me (a special treatment that relieves the pain immediately, but it should be like 2 or 3 times.)

The pain can be determine in advance its cause, and prescribe the appropriate treatment.

Acute pain (lumbago) — for the following reasons:

  1. Complications of scoliosis — nerve the result of disc displacement
  2. Osteohondroznye deformation of the vertebrae with compression of the nerve root herniated disks
  3. Spondylolisthesis and other diseases
  4. Trauma, injuries resulting from drops in this case, it may be not only conservative but also surgical treatment.
  5. The diseases of the internal organs.

The diagnosis plays a major role in determining the back pain:

Sharp pain can be due to:

  • kidney stones
  • exacerbations of intestinal diseases
  • the inflammation of the ureter
  • rupture of the cyst, the women, as well as other diseases

Girdle pain is a very serious sign that such possible diseases:

  • pyelonephritis
  • the aggravation of pancreatitis
  • stones in the gallbladder
  • myocardial infarction
  • rupture of the esophagus
  • an aneurysm in the lower aorta.

If you have back pain, the blades, it could mean:

  • neuro-muscular myopathy, paralysis of the adjoining muscles to the blade that the development of the so-called "winged" scapula
  • osteomyelitis developed after open injuries
  • benign tumors, malignant sarcoma of the blades
  • myocardial infarction
  • thoracic aortic aneurysm

Pain under left shoulder blade sharp is also very disturbing, because it indicates such diseases:

  • myocardial infarction
  • perforated ulcer of the stomach
  • cold.

Sharp pain in the upper part of the back:

  • pneumothorax (penetration of light)
  • pleurisy (accumulation of fluid in the lungs)
  • cancer of the lung, bronchus
  • attack of cholecystitis, the pain is concentrated below the ribs on the right side of the epigastric region, but the effect is wide: the right scapula, shoulder, the hand, the left side of the sternum
  • the attack of acute pancreatitis, the pain is experienced below the left shoulder blade on left of chest heart

Such a stunning diagnosis according to only one thing: if you have back pain, sharp pain, pressure, without delay, to the physician self-treatment is unacceptable.

Acute pain (sciatica) — sharp dagger, the pain in the lumbosacralis (sciatica), often radiates to the buttocks, legs can be due to:

  • pinched sciatic nerve arising from degenerative disc disease, hernia, and displacement of the intervertebral disc, spinal stenosis
  • the inflammation of the sciatic nerve as a result of hypothermia
  • spasm of the piriformis muscle
  • infectious diseases, tumors
  • late pregnancy

Treatment of acute pain caused by progressive diseases of the spine, such as scoliosis, osteochondrosis and other, as well as complications, should be carried out under the generally accepted scheme:

First medical treatment for elimination of acute pain, inflammation:

  • pain, non-steroidal or steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, muscle relaxants

Then, of course, the drug improves brain functioning, nervous system, circulatory system

After that, the direct cause manage the pain osteochondrosis, hernia, spondylosis and other diseases:

  • the restoration of the destroyed bone tissue protect
  • physical therapy, massage, physiotherapy

In the most severe cases, to eliminate the trap, use of surgery, however, this rarely occurs.

Excruciating pain — most commonly in the lower back may be caused from the following reasons:

  1. Lumbosacralis osteochondrosis, spondylosis, and other spinal pathology in the chronic phase
  2. The inflammation of the lumbar muscles (myositis)
  3. Adnexitis (inflammation of the appendix) in women)
  4. Heavy physical activity
  5. Long awkward pose
  6. An old injury, often grumpy "weather"

In all cases, the treatment differential. Combine the herbs in folk medicine. For example:

  • muscle pain is well treated with hot, dry weather, tie the dog's hair
  • when adnexitis long used a decoction of the special multi-ingredient herbal

Pain in athletes due to overvoltage can occur due to over-training, weight lifting, sharp turns, inclinations, the strain, which becomes, hard. In this case, the treatment of simple exercises, relaxation, stretching the muscles:

  1. I have to sleep on the couch on his side, tucked under his head, between his legs on the pillow
  2. Then the ground up, hugging her knees, pulling them into his chest
  3. Lying on his side, stretch out your legs at right angles to the body, rest the hand to the back of the head, tilt the head to the stomach
  4. Then, maintaining the lateral position, back straight, bend the upper leg, the knee, pull it closer to the stomach. Upper hand in the rear, lower the head under. Now try both the shoulder blades, the knee of the bent leg to touch the floor

Treatment may be supplemented, after workout, after the rubbing, gels, ointments, massage is also very relaxing pulled muscles relaxes pain.

A summary of the above, we can draw the following conclusions:

  1. Treatment of acute pain should be done only by the doctor from the moment of the event. Don't do it yourself diagnosis.
  2. Ask for help as quickly as possible, because the possible hazardous to your health, but maybe life cause.
  3. The chronic pain, the nature of which you already know, can be treated at home using, as the pharmaceutical industry and folk medicine. However, the control of the doctor still have to have, as well as the designation of a special physiotherapy procedures, massage, physiotherapy treatment and other treatments.

Health, and you may find that the pain of life will be less!
