Back Pain & Treatment
ABOUT BACK PAIN
Lower back pain and back pain in general results in millions of dollars of lost work and untold suffering every day. There are many factors that can be responsible for back pain. Improper sitting or lifting, overexertion, trauma, or inherited spinal abnormalities may contribute the reason for your pain or suffering.
Many of the pain-sensing nerves of the spine are in the facet joints, the two interlocking "fingers" at the back of each spinal bone. The normally smooth surfaces on which these joints glide, can become rough, irritated, and inflamed. Surgical treatment often involves removing these facet joints, exposing the spinal cord.
Another cause of lower back pain can be a bulging or herniated disc putting pressure on the spinal cord or nearby nerve root. The result is often numbness, tingling, or pain down the leg. Cutting away the herniated disc tissue can permanently alter its ability to separate and cushion the adjacent bones. This rarely addresses the underlying structural causes of the problem.
