Is it fresh injury or you have that problem since long. Right now, apply ice 5 times daily for 19 minutes each time. Don't throw anything for a month. Give rest to that part so that it heals.

Dear lybrate-user, The weakness from this viral attack has left a deep mark. You need to improve your immunity and detox, especially lymphatic drainage with qualified therapy. You can contact personally for more details. In the mean while, begin Meru (spinal) Yoga and simple streching exercises while sitting on your work chair to get some relief. Eat foods rich in proteins and minerals. Millet (Jowari, bajari, ragi etc), green leafy veggies best options. Regards.

What are the common causes of Back Pain?

Doctor Of Physical Therapy (DPT), Bachelor of Physical Therapy
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
What are the common causes of Back Pain?

What are the common causes of back pain?

Back pain can be caused by one or combination of several factors.
Some of these are:

Muscle or ligament sprain
This can occur due to poor posture, repeated heavy lifting, sudden awkward movement.

Bulging or herniated disc (slipped disc)
Discs are like cushions between our spinal verbrae which absorb shock. Due to repeated stress or sudden awkward force the disc material can bulge or protrude and press on nerve. Bulging discs may not painful and pain is mostly when it presses or irritates a nerve coming out of the spine.
Problems of the disc are called spondylosis.
Cervical spondylosis (neck area)
Thoracic spondylosis (upper and mid back area)
Lumbar spondylosis (low back area)

Arthritis
Osteoarthritis (degeneration of joints in the spine) can occur due to excessive stress on spine and also as we age.

Osteoporosis
This causes thinning and weakening of the bones in the spine.
The bone density and calcium is low and the risk of fractures is higher in people having osteoporosis.

Deformities of the spine
Abnormal curvature of the spine from birth or developed later in life can cause back pain.
Scoliosis, kyphosis etc.

It is very important to find the cause of the pain as treatment approaches are different depending on the problem. Knowing the root cause helps to create awareness that can prevent it from recurring.
