Reason Behind Back Pain

Back Pain is the type of pain observed in the back region.  Back pain can affect people of all ages and it is most common among adults aged between 35 and 55 years. Back pain is mainly associated with the way bones, muscles and ligaments in the backs work together in good condition.
Pain in the lower back is due to the lumbar spine, the discs between the vertebrae, ligaments which are around the spinel discs, the spinal cord and muscles of the lower back. Pain in the upper back is due to disorders of the aorta, tumors in the chest, and spine inflammation.
The main symptom of back pain is, as the name suggests, an ache or pain anywhere on the back, and sometimes all the way down to the buttocks and legs. The following are some of the symptoms of back pain:
  • Weight loss
  • Fever
  • Swelling of the back
  • Persistent back pain
  • Pain down the legs
  • Numbness around the buttocks
What causes back pain?
Age: The first symptoms of back pain typically occur between the ages of 30 and 50. Back pain becomes more common with advancing age.
Fitness level: Back pain is very common among people who are not physically fit. Weak back and abdominal muscles will not properly support the spine.
Weight gain: Being overweight, obese, or quickly gaining significant amounts of weight can put stress on the back and lead to back pain.
Occupational risk factors: Having a job which requires heavy lifting, pushing or pulling, particularly when it involves twisting of the spine, can lead to injury and back pain. An inactive job or a desk job can also lead to back pain, especially if the person has poor posture or sits all day in a chair with poor back support.
Treatment for back pain depends on the patient's history and the severity of pain. The vast majority of back pain cases get better within six weeks without any kind of surgery and back pain exercises are always a part of a treatment plan.
Some of the common treatments include adequate amount of rest, heat and ice packs, proper medication and exercise related to lower back.
