Back pain affects approximately 80% of Americans at one point in their lives. back pain is considered the second most common reason people choose to visit the chiropractor's office. The back hosts the most used joints in our body, which are the hip joints. Not just that, but when there is a problem with muscles or nerves in the back, there is a tremendous amount of pain that can impact a person's everyday life. back pain can be the result of many different situations and activities, including.
Heavy lifting, awkward movements, muscle spasms, bulging discs, herniated discs, sciatica, osteoarthritis, scoliosis, osteoporosis, aging, anxiety, smoking, sedentary lifestyle, strenuous activity, pregnancy, sprained ligaments, ruptured disks, strained muscles, poor posture, stress, and obesity.
Back pain may also originate from an injury to the sciatic nerve, which extends from the back through the buttocks and into one or both leg. A lumbar herniated disc, on the other hand, may also occur during an auto accident and may result in severe back pain. This happens when a disc in the back herniates and pinches the contiguous nerve root. This condition can cause people to experience severe back pain, extremity weakness, numbness in the upper thighs, and even loss of bladder or bowel control among other symptoms.
