Back Pain Treatment in Easton, MD

Believe it or not, after the common cold, back pain is the leading cause for doctor’s visits in the US. If back pain is left untreated it can gradually worsen over time, making it an even bigger issue than it was initially. If you have a back problem that is not going away, make sure that you see a back pain specialist — proper treatment in the initial stages of your condition might be the solution.

Back pain can come in many different forms. The back consists of multiple regions which all serve a variety of different functions. As a result, back pain can be caused by a range of different conditions. In order to understand the way the back functions more clearly, take a look at the three following sections of the back:

The lower back – This part of the back stretches from the bottom of the ribs to the pelvis.
The middle part of the back – This part goes from the lower part of the ribs to just below the shoulder blade (i.e. scapula)
The upper back – This area is above the scapula and mostly refers to the area around a person’s shoulders.

Considering that each part of the back protects different organs, pain in a specific part of the back can be caused by a problem in the organ itself. As a result, when you feel back pain, it’s very important to see a qualified professional for assistance.

Seeking Appropriate Back Pain Relief

Take a look at the different types of pain that can occur in various regions of the back:

Acute pain

Acute pain can happen for a variety of reasons. If the muscles in your back are not in shape, it’s easier than you think to strain them or pull a tendon or a ligament. Activities as simple as cleaning or sweeping can cause you to sprain a back muscle, causing acute pain and making it problematic to perform the simplest possible movements. A range of different factors can increase the likelihood of developing sudden onset back pain. For instance, if you are a few extra pounds overweight or you are generally inactive, you might be more prone to developing acute back pain.

Another potential risk factor for acute pain in the back is osteoporosis. This condition usually occurs later in life and can affect individuals who haven’t had a sufficient intake of Calcium, weakening their bones and making them more prone to breakage. If you happen to have osteoporosis, your likelihood for developing a vertebral compression fracture is much higher. If you have acute pain in your back for several weeks, make sure to visit a professional before it turns into a chronic type of pain.

Lower back pain

Pain in this region of the back can occur for a wide variety of reasons which makes it a very common type of pain. While pain caused by a car accident or an injury is usually obvious, lower back pain can also be caused by misaligned vertebrae, chemical imbalances or even bad posture. Muscle spasms in this region are also relatively common in pregnant women.

Upper and mid-back pain

Pain that occurs in the middle part of your back is usually caused by poor posture or deformities in your spine that have not been treated in time. Pain in your neck can be a result of a hunched upper back and a sedentary lifestyle. On the other hand, pain that happens in the middle section of your back could be caused by scoliosis that has not been diagnosed at an earlier stage of your life.
