There are many back pain causes - however, identifying causes is vital to the long term resolution of the problem, and your doctor or Chartered Physiotherapist will help you figure that out. More often than not the underlying problem has been present for some time before the pain evolves, or the problem is aggravated by a stressful movement or situation resulting in pain. In my experience there are five primary causes of mechanical back pain. Poor posture Injuries and accidents Stress Ageing. Medical conditions 1. Posture: Each part of the body was designed to be in a specific position. However, even if we start off with perfect posture, modern day living and the requirements of our work environments often mitigate against us and favour poor posture.
Do you have burning lower back pain and can't quite figure out what's causing it? If you're like many people, you have this at least occasionally and you're tired of it. That means that if you can eliminate the causes of the burning pain, you will likely be able to stop getting the pain in your lower back and that can mean good news for you. So, before you can look for an effective treatment, you need to identify the cause of your pain. There are many common causes and you may relate to one of these. Another Round of an Inflamed Sciatic Nerve The term a pinched sciatic nerve is all too familiar with many back pain sufferers and this certainly provides you with burning lower back pain.
Sciatic nerve pain is painful; the sciatic nerve is the largest and longest nerve in the human body. Sciatic nerve pain can usually be felt from the lower back and through to the lower leg behind the knee. So what causes sciatica? Herniated discs will usually cause sciatic pain. The disc will press directly on the nerve, and if the nerve becomes inflamed or irritated in any way sciatic pain can result. There are also other reasons for sciatic nerve pain, bones, muscles, tumors and other injuries. Sciatic nerve pain usually feels like tingling from the lower back as well as a painful burning sensation, even numbness. Sciatica related pain can also make walking hard.
Imagine floating on a peaceful lake in a canoe. Now imagine being in that same canoe with a cannon. Yes, a cannon. What do you think would happen if you fired that cannon? I'm sure you'd imagine the outcome wouldn't be good. Mainly because there's not a lot of support offered by the canoe. It's also the reason why many of us get back injuries. We're trying to fire a cannon off a canoe. Now there may not be much you can do for the canoe but you can work on stabilizing your spine so you can prevent back injuries. How do you stabilize your spine to prevent injuries? The first thing you must do is focus on strengthening your core muscles. Most people immediately think of doing crunches when they hear this.
The onset of back pains are usually triggered by the use of an uncomfortable mattress-usually a lumpy one. If you are using an old mattress with numerous lumps protruding, you are more likely to have countless sleepless nights due to this. However, there are also newly purchased mattresses that just do not provide the right comfort we need. If you are one of those who are close to banging their head for spending more than a thousand dollars for an uncomfortable mattress, there is hope for you still. You can always purchase a mattress topper. A mattress topper hides the imperfections of your primary mattress. True to its name, you place it on top of your mattress.
