Why Does Your Back Hurt? + What To Do About It

Why Does Your Back Hurt? + What To Do About It

Why Does Your Back Hurt?

Most of us, experience back pain due to incorrect posture or longer duration of sitting.

Sometimes you may experience back pain because of exertion - you spent the entire day doing the same kind of job or maybe you bent in a wrong manner while picking up your child. However, the actual cause of your spinal agony may not be very clear, but it pays to be aware of the possible reasons that can cause backache. It is good to consult a doctor if your back pain is consistent and recurrent.

Here are few of the causes:

1. The position of your pelvis

The pelvis consists of three bones that can shift depending on which muscles become weak or stiff. This brings about a pull in the muscle of the lower back, resulting in severe strain to this area. You should consult a physiotherapist for suggestions regarding the best exercises for strengthening your pelvic area.

2. Weak abdominal muscles

A cause of your back pain can be weak stomach muscles. Abdominal muscles play an important role in balancing out the constant bending that your back muscles perform. When you've weak abdominal muscles, your spine is not able to maintain proper balance, resulting in severe stress on the spinal column.

3. Disc injuries

Located between the bones of your spine, discs perform the function of a shock absorber. Physical injury to these padded cushions can cause them to break open, leading to a condition known as herniated disc. This can then bring about pain in the back area.

Few precautions that can be taken for a hurting back. Despite the causes, there are certain precautions that you can take, which are:

  • Avoid sitting in a bad posture, that is, keep your back straight as much as you can. Pull and stretch your body in continual intervals to keep it relaxed.
  • Consult the right physician instead of doing exercise that can aggravate your pain.
  • Take a break from work and go for short walks, every couple of hours.

'consult'.

Probably you have congenital or infantile hemiparesis, or maybe hemiparetic type of cerebral palsy. If such is the case, exercise and physiotherapy are of utmost importance. If muscle spasm is too much, centrally acting muscle relaxants are needed.

I have pain in my wrist. I've been to two Orthos, have taken Xray and done Sonography but havent found any issues. I have gone through some physiotherapy sessions too, but to no avail. It only pains when I bend my hand backwards beyond a certain degree. I can still live with it, but just wondering what it could be and what can I do to cure it. My guess is that I may have some deficiency like calcium, etc.

Hi, This is Dr Akshay from Fortis Hospital, New Delhi. My guess is that it could be tendinitis or some soft tissue problems. I would ask you to wear a wrist brace for about 3-4 weeks , do some ultrasonics or laser therapy and come back to me if it doesn't improve.

Hi lybrate-user it appears to me that you are attributing the back pain to your surgery .which might be partly true in your case because after uterus removal the centre of gravity changes and you are guarding your abdomen now .a good physiotherapy and rehab workup with posture management will do wonders .or else see a good pain physician for some help.

Hi, I have severe pain in left leg starting from back till toes. What should be done to cure the pain?
Hi lybrate-user, I have seen your question stating" severe pain in left leg starting from back till toes" on observing your profile sanya. Female 43 years 10 months 5.4 feet 80 kgs I observed that for your height 5.4 your weight should be in the range of 49 kg to 60 kgs which is slightly more. I must say here, as the age reaches in females due to various reasons ie low calcium levels and weight can affect legs and back. I suggest please get your vitamin d checked! I also guess its symptom of sciatica usaually this occur after 40s. Acupuncture works better for both sciatica and weight loss too including many acute and chronic conditions.

I am a patient of rheumatoid arthritis suffering for last 7-8 years, now 62 years old (male). For pain relieving, some doctors have suggested cold compress, some others, hot compress. I am a little bit confused. Although, I am comfortable with cold compress, my sister, now 60, a patient of RA, prefers hot compress. I want to know what is the correct procedure. Pl help. S.

There is no evidence that either of them is more hramful or beneficial than others. Some people give logic of cold compress over hot Ra joints. But, I don't think besides giving a temporary relief it has any long term implications. So you can choose what you like Regards
