Back Pain Overview
Back pain can present through multiple disorders and diseases of the tissues in the neck, head, and back. Back pain can dramatically affect daily activities, range of motion, and the ability to perform simple tasks without pain.
At SpineCare, we are dedicated to providing patients with the back pain relief that they need. We treat patients with pain over all areas of the back, and work with individuals to limit pain and help them resume normal activity and function.
Types of Back Pain
At SpineCare, we evaluate and treat patients who experience a variety of different back pains. Some of the most common types of back pain include:
- Upper or mid-back pain– this type of back pain affects the area of the spine that is designed to be strong and provide us with stability. Because this portion of the spine offers a great deal of stability for the body’s structure, this portion of the spine does not usually develop spinal disorders such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or degenerative disc disease. Typically the most common cause of upper back pain is due to muscular irritation or joint dysfunction.
- Lower back pain– lower back pain can result from injury to muscles, ligaments, and joints, pressure on nerve roots, and compression fractures. Pain can result from small amounts of force placed on the spine due to the area of the spine that is affected.
- Cervical pain– cervical pain is also known as neck pain. It is typically caused from degenerative disc disease, whiplash, neck strain, herniated discs, or pinched nerves. As an individual ages, cervical pain can also be present through osteoarthritis and spinal stenosis. The neck is generally at risk for injuries and strains, and can result in pain.
