Back pain, also known as lumbar pain or sciatica is a common health problem. It can be caused by a variety of reasons and the root cause is often unknown, but there are several general categories of causes.
Despite the fact that ‘the backbone’ is called the ‘webs’ in biology, its existence is not well known by many. Our ancestors developed back muscles to help them bend, swing, and extend their limbs for hunting, playing, farming and all the other activities we have today. The spinal column of our ancestors is not something we know much about and very little is known about the development of back muscles in our current era.
Because of the shape of the spine, your muscles attach directly to your bones, which in turn attach to the natural ‘backbone’. The natural ‘backbone’ supports the main body structures of the spine, thus adding strength to the spine.
Muscles of the back provide support to the vertebrae and to the spinal column. They also help move parts of the body and are important for posture. However, muscles have limitations. Over time, they get used to what they are doing, and they become weak.
When you develop an injury, the muscles are stretched beyond their capacity and this can also be due to a pinched nerve or a herniated disc. If you injure one area, such as a muscle in the neck, the pain can radiate to other areas, especially if you have had problems in the past with back pain. Back pain may be caused by your neck pain is a combination of the two.
You might experience more pain when you perform unusual movements or when the bones of your spine are pushed to the sides. For example, if you develop a herniated disc and have slipped backward you will experience pain where the backside- of the disc meets the vertebrae. This could be anywhere from the buttocks down to the ankles, depending on where the disc is inserted.
In the case of the disc, it may be on the backside of the spine, the top or back, the sides, or on the front or lower part of the back. The area around the disc may be warm or cold, depending on whether it is inflamed. Lumbar pain, also known as sciatica, is pain that radiates down the leg to the ankle.
The sciatic nerve carries the pain, from the back, through the vertebrae, and into the spinal cord. The pain can radiate down the leg to the ankles or the feet or other areas of the body.
In the case of arthritis, the pain may be felt in the back and lower back, buttocks, and legs. Pain from arthritis may be sharp, dull, or sharp and dull, depending on which area of the body is affected. Sciatica may be associated with many problems, such as difficulty walking, back pain, stiffness, leg pain, or even difficulty climbing stairs.
In the case of osteoarthritis, the pain may be felt in the knees, hips, and spine and can spread through the whole body. This type of arthritis is one of the most common types of arthritis.
In the case of patellar subluxation, the pain is felt at the kneecap or the center of the knee. This can cause great pain in the kneecap or the center of the knee, or it can lead to knee pain.
