COMMON CAUSES OF BACK PAIN:
There are many different forms of back pain, and a variety of back injuries that can cause pain, discomfort and disability. Some of the most common back conditions we see among our patients in Solihull and Birmingham include:
Spine arthritis - osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis is a progressive degenerative condition characterised by the gradual wearing down of spinal discs. Spinal arthritis often causes damage to the vertebral joints resulting in chronic pain, stiffness and limited mobility.
Disc Herniation/prolapse - sciatica
Within the spine are flexible disks that cushion your bones and absorb shock. When these disks are damaged, they may compress a nerve resulting in lower extremity numbness, pain, weakness or tingling.
If ligaments in your back and spine are stretched or torn due to sudden movement, this is know as a strain. In most cases, this injury causes severe pain in the damaged area With associated movement comprise.
There are small joints either side of your spine that go all the way up The spinal column, these facilitate movement and are known as facet joints. Like any of the joints in the body these can become irritated and inflamed causing severe pain and huge muscle spasms.
Sacroiliac joint pain
The sacroiliac joint of the joints that attach the spine to the pelvis. They are strong joints which are important for the transfer of forces from above and below. Like any joint in the body, these are also prone to pain and injury. Also, these joints are surrounded by dense network of ligaments which also become damaged and inflamed.
