Back Pain Information
Back pain or a backache is one of the most common ailments treated by physicians. An estimated 30 million Americans suffer with chronic lower back pain. Nearly four out of five people will suffer from some sort of back pain during their lifetime. While most acute lumbar pain injuries resolve spontaneously over a few weeks, many back injuries result in long-term chronic disabling pain. For most of these cases, the exact cause of the pain cannot be found. Many people with back pain even have normal X-ray MRI examinations.
Causes of Back Pain
Back pain or backaches have a variety of causes including muscle pain or strains, sprained ligaments, facet joint arthritis (degenerative joint disease or osteoarthritis), osteoporosis, vertebral compression fractures, lumbar disc bulges or disc herniations, degenerative disc disease, pinched lumbar nerves or nerve compression, sciatica, or sacroiliitis. Back pain may also be a result of referral pain from other organs such as kidney disease or diseases of the pancreas. Rarely, back pain may be due to more serious diseases such as infections or even cancer that require aggressive evaluation and treatment by a physician.
People young and old can suffer from back pain
You don’t have to be old to develop back pain. Back pain occurs in people of all ages, young or old. Back pain may result from an injury or a gradual degeneration of the ligaments, joints, bones, and/or discs. While back pain can develop in anyone, certain groups are at higher risk such as the obese, smokers, pregnant women, or people performing heavy lifting, repetitive lifting, twisting, and bending as part of their work.
Prevention is the best way
Because back pain can be so difficult to treat, preventing back pain is your best hope. You can reduce your risk of developing back pain by losing excess weight. Every pound of weight loss reduces the cumulative impact of up to one ton per mile of walking. Stopping smoking, maintaining good body posture, conditioning of the core body and lower extremity muscles, and avoiding excessive fatigue at work or play are all ways to reduce your risk of back injury and subsequent back pain.

Back Pain Treatments
The usual treatments are often too much, frequently too dangerous and rarely enough. The standard treatments for back pain are over-the-counter prescription narcotic and non-narcotic medication, rest, physical therapy, steroid injections, and traction. As most patients who suffer with this type of pain soon realize, these back pain treatments are usually not sufficient and many, especially the oral medications, are associated with serious side effects such as sedation, nausea, constipation, and even addiction. Extended use of some over-the counter medications such as ibuprofen, naproxen, and acetaminophen may even result in stomach ulcers, kidney failure, heart failure, and liver failure. Many back pain sufferers often search for alternative solutions to the usual over-the-counter and prescription medications. Surgery may be required when the excruciating pain does not resolve or when severe nerve damage is evident. However, even with the best surgeon, back surgery is not always successful and in many cases, the patient’s condition worsens.
Sudden severe pain, especially in the chest, arms, or head, pain associated with fever, numbness or weakness, or pain in any area of the body that does not resolve after a couple of weeks, should always be evaluated by a physician to be certain that other medical conditions, including heart disease, stroke, infections, or even cancer is not the underlying cause of pain.
