Back Pain

Our spinal disk (Inter Vertebral Disc) is like a jelly donut, with a softer center encased within a tougher exterior. A herniated disk (also referred as slipped disc) occurs when some of the softer “jelly” pushes out through a crack in the tougher exterior.

A herniated disk can irritate nearby nerves and result in pain, numbness or weakness in an arm or leg.

 

Disc herniation is usually due to age related degeneration, although trauma, lifting injuries and straining may also contribute to the problem.

Osteoarthritis is a condition in which the cartilage that protects and cushions the joints breaks down over time. Eventually, the bones-formerly separated by the cartilage-rub against each other, resulting in damage to the tissue and underlying bone and causing painful joint symptoms.

When osteoarthritis affects the small joints in the spine, it can lead to back pain.

Osteoarthritis in other joints, such as the hips, can cause us to limp or to change the way we walk. This can also lead to back pain.

Acute back pain comes on suddenly and usually lasts from a few days to a few weeks (maximum up to six weeks). Most cases of Acute Back pain will clear up in a few days without medical attention, although recurrence after a first attack is common.

Yes.

Doing regular exercise can help to reduce and relieve back pain, and even prevent it from returning. There’s a whole range of physical activities to keep our back healthy. Research suggests that exercise may help if you have back pain that lasts for longer than six weeks. You may be able to try:

  • walking
  • yoga
  • swimming
  • cycling
  • hydrotherapy (exercises in water)

(Note: Exercises should be undertaken only after consulting with your Physician)

Yes. The wrong mattress can be a reason for causing back pain. Lack of support from a mattress reinforces poor sleeping posture, strains muscles and does not help keep the spine in alignment, all of which contribute to low back pain.

 

Recent studies show that a medium-firm mattress greatly improves the sleep quality in people suffering from chronic lower back pain. A mattress that provides both comfort and back support helps reduce low back pain, allowing the structures in the spine to really rest and rejuvenate during the night.

Yes. The chances are more for obese people with big tummy to get back pain. Overweight people invariably adopt a very poor posture .They carry their excess weight in front of them, which throws their backs into an uncomfortable hollow. This overstretches certain spinal ligaments and reduces the diameter of the foramina (holes) through which the spinal nerves emerge, increasing the risk of nerve root compression.

Pregnant women are also prone to backache because they carry the weight of their babies in front of them. This forces their spines into a painful backward bend. Exactly the same is true for a obese person with big tummy.
