Given below are some conditions that are linked
to back pain
  1. Muscle or ligament strain A muscle or ligament
    strain can result on lifting a heavy weight or
    from sudden movement. Poor physical fitness and
    poor health in general can also result in back
    pain
  2. Arthritis Osteoarthritis of the spine can also
    result in back pain. A narrowing of space around
    the spinal column can result in a condition
    called spinal stenosis

Given below are some conditions that are linked
to back pain
  1. Osteoporosis With increasing age, your bones
    become brittle. The spinal column is also subject
    to ageing. Sometimes a compression fracture from
    a fall/injury can result in severe pain
  2. Herniated disk Disk are nothing but soft tissues
    that act as cushions in between the bones of your
    spine. Sometimes these disks can degenerate or
    bulge out, leading to compression of the nerves
    that come out of your spinal column. This can
    lead to severe radiating pain or numbness in one
    or both your legs

How to treat back pain?
  • Unfortunately, there are numerous bogus products
    in the market that try to capitalize on the lack
    of patient knowledge as far as spine conditions
    are concerned. Using these products is actually
    causes more harm than benefit.

The treatment of back pain first begins with a
proper physical exam and trying to understand as
to why the back pain began in the first place.

Some tests that your orthopedic doctor would
order for back pain include
  1. A simple X-Ray
  2. CT or MRI to specifically look at the discs or
    ligaments
  3. Blood tests to rule out any infection
  4. Nerve studies to see specifically whether there
    is nerve root compression from the herniated disk

After a diagnosis is made, treatment of back pain
is usually by a combination of
  • Simple Medications
  • Ice, rest and heat and
  • Physical therapy

simple treatments completely fail. Most back pain
