Each year millions of people complain of back pain. It is fast becoming a real problem for the sufferer, their family, and the economy. When back pain strikes and becomes a chronic problem, the individual’s work suffers too. Often times the person requires additional time off work due to unmanageable pain, doctor’s appointments, and lack of adequate sleep.

Strain

Many people harm their back by not lifting items properly or by overusing their back when they are not accustomed to using the back muscles. Even bending over for an extended period of time doing gardening or cleaning can strain back muscles if you are not used to that kind of back exercise. This type of back pain is referred to as acute pain because it usually clears up in less than 6 weeks. If it lasts longer than 12 weeks, it is called chronic pain. Exercising your core, abdomen, and back muscles will strengthen your back to aid in preventing this from happening in the future.

Herniated disc

The spinal column is made up of bones called vertebrae. In between each vertebra is a small circular disc which is made up of a rubbery soft substance. The discs serve as “shock absorbers”, but if they get damaged or break down due to an injury or even old age, then the disc may bulge out. This is referred to as a herniated disc. Once the disc is pushed out (herniated) it can cause severe pain.

Pain after spine surgery

Some people still experience pain after a back surgery. One explanation for this is what is referred to as epidural fibrosis. Epridural firbosis occurs when a spine surgery results in painful scar tissue. Normally scar tissue does not cause pain because tissue does not have any nerves attached to it, but if the scar tissues rests on the nerve, then pain follows.
