Most people at one point in their life or are currently suffering from back pain. The back pain can range anywhere from mild to severe. Back pain is the number one reason people miss work and the second most common reason people visit their doctor. Most of the time, back pain is not serious and is not caused by a serious medical condition.
Back pain is usually not a medical emergency. But if your symptoms are persistent and they are coupled with other bodily changes, fever, swelling, heat or redness, it’s time to schedule an appointment with a back pain specialist at KureSmart Pain Management in Dover, DE.
Types of back pain
Upper and Middle Back Pain – Most upper and middle back pain is caused by poor posture. People with desk jobs or who slouch a lot tend to sit with a rounded back with shoulders hunched forward. This position can cause too much strain on your back muscles. This kind of pain can also be caused by lifting heavy items or carrying them incorrectly, injury causing muscle strain or Scoliosis.
Lower Back Pain – Lower back pain is a very widespread and very hard to diagnose and therefore, treat. Most people have most likely experience lower back pain at some point in their life. It can be a pain that comes on gradually or one that is sharp and sudden below the waist. The common cause of lower back pain is muscle strain from pushing or pulling or carrying heavy loads improperly. Other causes for lower back pain may include a pinched nerve, herniated disc, spinal stenosis, osteoarthritis and spondylolisthesis, where one vertebra slides over another. Rare cases of lower back pain may be caused by bacterial infections or tumors.
Pain in Spine – Pain in the spine can be isolated to one of the following regions, or present in several or all of them: Cervical (neck region), Thorastic (middle back), Lumbar (lower back), Sacral (hip/pelvic area).
