At KureSmart Pain Management in Kent Island, MD, back pain is a common complaint among our patients. The spine, located in your back, is made up of a pillar of bones called vertebrae. The vertebrae are held together by muscles and ligaments. The most common cause of back pain is a strain to those muscles or ligaments.
Most people who suffer from back pain will first visit their primary care physician seeking treatment. If your back pain is resistant to that initial treatment, it might be time to visit the back pain specialists at KureSmart Pain Management in Kent Island, MD
Types of Back Pain
Middle and Upper Back Pain – Poor posture is the culprit to most upper and middle back pain. Years of sitting with a rounded back with shoulders hunched forward can cause too much strain on your back muscles. In today’s time, it’s hard to have a job that doesn’t involve sitting at a computer where it’s easy to adopt bad habits of sitting like this. It can also be caused by improper carrying and lifting of heavy items, trauma or injury causing muscle strain, or Scoliosis. In order to treat your upper and middle back pain (mid-back pain), our Kent Island, MD back pain specialists will need to pinpoint the cause of your back pain.
Lower Back Pain – Lower back pain is very widespread and very hard to diagnose and therefore, treat. Everyone has most likely experienced 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 of 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), Thoracic (middle back), Lumbar (lower back), Sacral (hip/pelvic area). As with all back pain, pain in the spine can only be treated when the cause of the pain is discovered. The back pain specialists at KureSmart Pain Management Kent Island, MD are here to help you locate the cause and treat your pain in the spine.
