Hi doctors, I am having pain in my back since 3 weeks, pain is very mild. It occurs at intervals and it is relieved a bit when I lie down and does not disturb my sleep. Since 2 days I am feeling a bit pressure there, like something is pressing there from inside. This feeling of pressure increases sometimes for a few seconds and goes away. Please suggest me what this could be. I am 16 years old.

Cartilage is a fine, rubbery elastic tissue that acts as cushion between the bones in the joint spaces. It is a connective tissue and enables the joints to move freely and smoothly. It acts as a shock absorber and reduces the friction between the joints. This cartilage could either be damaged as a result of injury or degeneration as part of normal ageing process. Either of this causes friction during joint movement, causing painful, stiff movements and in some cases, even swelling of the joint spaces.
There is also a covering around the joints known as synovium. When there is a cartilage damage, this synovium is irritated, leading to increased secretion of synovial fluid, which can cause swelling in joints. There is also reduction in the range of motion of the affected joint.
Most commonly affected joints include knees, hips, shoulders, elbows and ankles. Other than degeneration that happens with ageing, cartilage damage is mainly caused by injury or trauma including fall/impact, joint dislocation, infection, ligament tear, meniscus tear, and inflammation (gout, arthritis, etc.)
Age and trauma are the main reasons for cartilage damage.
Direct blow: A heavy blow directly to any joint leads to damage (accident, sports injury, etc.).
Ageing: With constant wear and tear, joints that are under constant stress are prone for damage.
Obesity: This is also a common cause leading to chronic inflammation and breakdown of the joints.
Limited mobility: For whatever reasons (including sedentary lifestyle), lack of movement can cause cartilage damage.
The presenting symptoms of a person with any affected joint would be pain, discomfort and stiffness with movement. In addition to history and physical examination, MRI and arthroscopy can be used to confirm the diagnosis.
Start with a conservative approach and gradually switch to more advanced treatments. Conservative approach includes a combination of pain killers, steroid injections, and exercise (at a clinic or at home). If these do not work, the following surgical options are available:
Debridement: The affected cartilage is smoothened and the loose edges are removed to prevent rubbing and irritation. It is done using a shaver.
Marrow Stimulation: Using the marrow cells, more cartilage production is stimulated. Using tiny drills, holes are drilled to form a blood clot, which triggers formation of new cartilage.
Mosaicplasty: In areas of localized damage, healthy cartilage from an unaffected area is placed.
Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation: Cartilage that is grown in a lab for one to three months are placed into the knee or affected joint to allow for healthy tissue growth.
Back pain is a very common and largely uncomfortable symptom of daily life. It affects a lot of people, and the cause can vary from neurological to orthopaedic. The related problems that back pain can cause include pain along your spine extending to your other muscles, impairment of movement, or difficulty carrying about daily tasks like walking or lifting objects.
• If you have pain that seems to travel outward from your back to your legs and maybe even your arms, you may have a slipped disc. This disease is not too infrequent, especially among older people. It is caused when a vertebra leaves its rightful anatomical place and settles somewhere else impairing normal bodily functions. Since this is a disorder of both the spine and the skeletal system, you can see either a spine specialist or an orthopaedic for a remedy.
• If you have a persistent pain in your buttocks or your legs that do not go away even after persistent effort, and if you get slight relief every time you lean your whole body forward, you may have spinal stenosis. It is the constricting of the spinal canal at the base, which causes severe pain and discomfort. This condition may be caused by either age or genetic factors and is an ailment of the spine. Therefore, you should visit a spine surgeon for a cure.
• If you have pain that originates in the buttocks but has spread to the whole leg in such proportions that normal walking and standing have become difficult, you may have sciatica. This is a nerve disorder wherein a herniated disc puts pressure on a nerve until there is persistent pain surrounding the nerve. This condition is a nerve problem, and hence visiting a neurologist will offer the perfect solution.
Leg pain has become an indispensable part of the daily millennial's life, thanks to sedentary lifestyles and poor ergonomics. If left untreated, it can give rise to such chronic pain that you may become permanently unable to stand up. Therefore, you need to visit a doctor as soon as symptoms show. Watch out for the symptoms above and visit a specialist accordingly.
