Types of Back Pain
Back pain is generally felt in one of three areas, the upper back, the middle back and the lower back.
Upper Back Pain
The upper and mid back consists of the thoracic spine, which is generally stable and strong. Because of the strong structure of the upper back, it is less likely to be injured. But, while upper back pain is less common than other types of back pain, it can result from problems like disc issues and strains.
Middle Back Pain
The middle back is also known as the thoracic spine, which like the upper back, is not as prone to injury or disc issues as the neck or the lower back. However, the thoracic spine does still consist of discs between the vertebrae, which can be damaged and lead to pain.
Lower Back Pain
The lower back is also referred to as the lumbar spine. The lumbar spine is more flexible than the thoracic spine, and therefore more prone to injury. The lumbar spine also supports a lot of your upper body weight, which can enhance the damage caused by poor body mechanics, accidents, and strains.
Causes of Back Pain – From Your Kissimmee Chiropractor
The spine is a complex structure of bone, discs, nerves, muscles and ligaments. Because of its complexity, there are a lot of things that can go wrong and lead to pain and discomfort. As your Kissinger chiropractor, we have seen a variety of causes for back pain, including:
Strains and Sprains
The soft tissues that support your spine, like muscles and ligaments, can sustain damage in a variety of ways. Auto accidents, sports accidents, workplace accidents and other events can pull and tear, leading to pain, discomfort and inflammation.
The discs in-between the vertebrae can bulge or herniate, putting pressure on nerves in your spine. They can also lose moisture, therefore providing less cushion between bones. Disc issues may result from injuries or from disease.
When one of the nerves in your spine is pinched, it can lead to unpleasant sensations like shooting pains, numbness, loss of sensation, etc.
