Back pain can affect anyone at any age for a number of reasons. It can range from a minor dull pain to debilitating pain that makes it hard to move. While no one is immune from suffering from back pain, there are several factors that increase your risk of suffering from back pain including getting older, being overweight, genetics, jobs involving heavy lifting, being out of shape, certain diseases and smoking. KureSmart Pain Management in Laurel, MD is home to a team of experts who specialize in back pain management. Common conditions we see that cause back pain are herniated discs, spinal stenosis, disc displacement, and degenerative disc disease. Our team can help you find relief from your back pain.
Types of Back Pain
- Upper and Middle Back Pain – Though not as common as lower back pain, upper and middle back pain can be just as debilitating. Most upper and middle back pain results from muscle strain or injury, poor posture or conditions such as a herniated disc. In order to treat your upper and middle back pain (mid-back pain), our Laurel, MD back pain specialists will need to pin-point the cause of your back pain.
- Lower Back Pain – Lower back pain is more widespread and much harder to to diagnose and treat. 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 common causes for lower back pain may include a 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). As with all back pain, pain in the spine can only treated when the cause of the pain is discovered. The back pain specialists at KureSmart Pain Management in Laurel, MD are here to help you locate the cause and treat your pain in the spine.
