BACKPAIN CAUSES, DIGANOSIS, SOLUTIONS, REMEDIES.
One of the most common reasons for patients seeking emergency care is back discomfort. Both adult and juvenile populations may have a variety of etiologies (the science of determining the causes and origins of any disease).Back pain or lower back pain is an issue that can last from childhood through age, giving rise to considerable levels of disability. Due to injury, poor activity, wrong sitting posture or medical condition, it causes severe back pain. It can have a harmful effect on people of all ages, but especially in the case of older people, it converts to lower back pain. Lower back pain may be linked to the lumbar spine. The lumbar spine consists of 5 disks L1 TO L5 which connect to S1, the first disk of the hip.
The human back is a complex structure of muscles, ligaments (fiber connective tissues that connect bones to bones), tendons (fiber connective tissues that connect muscles to bones), disks and bones which help us to move around by working together and supporting each other. The problem with these components is called back pain & some times it remains unclear. Damage can be done by strain, medical conditions and poor posture.
Reasons for Backpain.
There are certain reasons for backpain. Some of them are mentioned below;
One of the strongest reasons for back pain is strain, tension or injury. Frequent causes of back pain are mentioned below.
a-muscles or ligaments that have been strained.
b–spasm of the muscles.
c–injuries, fractures, or falls caused by muscular tension.
Strains or spasms can occur as a result of the following activities.
i–lifting something incorrectly.
ii–lifting something too heavy
iii–making an abrupt and uncomfortable movement.
A number of structural problems may also result in back pain.
- Ruptured discs: Disks cushion each vertebra in the spine. When a disc ruptures, it puts more pressure on a nerve, causing back discomfort.
- Bulging discs: A bulging disc can put immense pressure on a nerve in the same manner as a ruptured disc does.
- Sciatica: A bulging or herniated disc presses on the nerves in the buttock and down the back of the leg, causing an acute and shooting pain.
- Kidney problems. Back pain can also be caused by kidney stones or other issues.
Movement & poor posture.
When using computers, adopting a slumped seating position might lead to increasing back and shoulder difficulties over time. Poor daily activities or postures are also causes of back pain.Such as,
-muscular strain caused by coughing or sneezing.
-Overstretching is a term used to describe when someone overextends themselves.
-bending in an unnatural manner or for long periods of time.
–Long periods of standing or sitting.
–bending the neck forward, as when driving or working on a computer.
-prolonged periods of driving without stopping, even when not crouched
–sleeping on a mattress that does not provide adequate body support and does not maintain the spine straight.
Back pain solutions
Back pain can be relieved with simple stretches.
-Don’t stretch cold muscles on the first walk or do some 5 minutes to warm up your muscles.

In a nutshell, back pain is a very severe and painful disease which continues at every age and becomes very dangerous at senior age. It can not be resolved completely, but it can be metigated by doing physical exercise as recommended by physicians and physiotherapists. It also needs a positive attitude, right sitting posture, consistent exercise & mental counselling too.
Do not lift and twist at the same time. Your bed must be spine comfort so that your spine will be straight. Primary care must be adopted to resolve the matters. If there are any red flags, an MRI and XRAY should be performed; otherwise, they should not.While adopting some of the precautions, back pain could be controlled and managed to live a healthy life.
