Getting Rid Of The Chronic Back Pain

Back pain also known as “dorsalgia” is pain experienced in the back that normally originates from the muscles, nerves, bones, joints or other structures in the
spine. Back pain is one of the most common medical problems, affecting 80% people at some point during their lives.

Neck pain (or cervicalgia) is a common problem, with two-thirds of the population having neck pain at some point in their lives.

Back pain can have many underlying reasons, but often no specific cause will be found and the pain will stop. The most common causes of back and neck pains are:

·
Disease or injury to the muscles, bones, and/or nerves of the spine.

·
Pain arising from the discs themselves called discogenic pain

·
Pain from bulging discs compressing exiting nerve roots or radicular pain, which can
lead to sciatica from the back or pain radiating down from the neck to one or
both arms.

·
Normal pregnancy can cause back pain in many ways, including stretching ligaments
within the pelvis, irritating nerves, and straining the low back.

·
Pain from arthritis of the facet joints – the joints that hold the spine in alignment, also called facet joint syndrome

·
Pain from bony compression of the nerves of the spine called spinal stenosis
