Back Pain

Back pain is simply described as any pain felt along your back. It can range from aching, stabbing, or radiating pain, and is often made worse by movement or exertion. You may experience upper, middle or lower back pain anytime in your life.

Back pain is one of the most common forms of chronic pain. This is no surprise, given the major role your back plays in everything you do. It’s also why there are several kinds of back pain and even more potential causes.

What causes back pain?

  • Strains, as a result of overexertion, awkward movements, injuries or muscle spasms
  • Medical conditions, including sciatica, ruptured or bulging discs, scoliosis, stenosis, arthritis, and osteoporosis
  • Risk factors, such as bad posture/ergonomics, poor health, heavy lifting, or a general lack of movement
  • Rare but serious complications, like cancer or infections of the spine

How to treat back pain

There are several home remedies that can potentially relieve back pain, including applying hot or cold packs, stretching, yoga, low-impact exercise, and over-the-counter pain medications. Consult with your provider before starting an exercise regimen.

Smart lifestyle choices and habits can help prevent back pain, including maintaining good posture, lifting heavier items with your legs instead of your back, and refraining from being too sedentary on a daily basis (make time to move).

If home remedies do not provide adequate relief, Twin Cities Pain Clinic offers a wide variety of options for treating back pain.
