What is Back Pain?

B

ack pain, however severe, is experienced by millions of people annually. Sometimes it’s nothing more than aching from sleeping in an awkward position, and sometimes it is far more serious and requires surgery to correct it. There are a multitude of reasons as to why you may be feeling pain in your back. Many people believe that back pain is just a part of aging, but quite frankly, that may not be the cause of the problem at all. It’s no secret that the human body deteriorates with age, but the back pain you may be feeling isn’t your entire back or spine decomposing or breaking down. However, since your spine makes up the greater portion of your body, and literally holds the posture and form of the abdomen, shoulder, and neck, any small part of the spine that is damaged can easily cause severe pain. There are so many different parts of the spine that keep the body moving and comfortable, and it is extremely important that these parts move fluently. Each section of your back, from your lower spine to nerves and cartilage in between the vertebrae, can each cause dozens of different sensations, from tingling to numbness to weakness to pain. Getting these issues looked at immediately is detrimental to your health.

Back problems can often be hereditary. However, sometimes back pain comes from activities and strenuous actions that a person chooses to make, such as playing sports. These activities may ultimately cause problems to occur with the spine. Professional athletes are among the highest risk, considering their extreme levels of activity. Professional football players make a living hitting, falling, diving, and literally running their bodies into the ground. They do these things because it is their job, but consequently, over time these actions can have long term effects on the body. These activities cause strain, pressure, and injuries to certain parts of the body. With the back and spine being a major part of the human body, any of these strenuous activities can do extreme long term damage to the spine as well as to other areas of the body.
