    BACKACHE DESCRIPTION

    ACUTE & CHRONIC LOWER BACK PAIN

    Nearly 80 percent of adults are affected by back pain at some point in their lives, most often in the lower back. It can be either acute or chronic. Acute pain starts suddenly and is usually the result of misusing the body in some way. Aches and pain in the lower back can be a chronic problem. Chronic backache keeps recurring and can be brought on by almost any movement, for no particular reason. It is one of the most common reasons for hospitalization in the United States. A variety of problems in the muscles, tendons, bones, ligaments, or an underlying organ, such as the kidney, may cause backaches. Attempting to move or lift heavy objects is said to be the primary cause of back problems in the United States sometimes because of damage done to a spinal disk.

    For many years, it was assumed that back pain was usually the result of spinal degeneration or injury, especially damage to the inter-vertebral disks, These are structures located between the vertebrae that act as cushions. Each disk consists of a tough, fibrous outer layer surrounding a soft interior, which is what provides the cushioning. With the ordinary wear and tear of living, the disks show signs of aging and may be injured. When a disk begins to degenerate, a strain - even something as small as a sneeze - can cause the disk to rupture, or herniate, allowing the soft interior material to protrude out of the disk and press against the spinal cord. This situation is sometimes erroneously referred to as a "slipped disk".

    A herniated disk, prolapsed disk, and slipped disk are all names for the same problem, and are usually found in the lumbar region of the back (the lower back). A herniated disk can result in severe intermittent or constant back pain, particularly if it presses on the sciatic nerves and causes a condition known as sciatica. The sciatic nerves are responsible for transmitting all signals from the lower body. They are the longest nerves in the body and any pressure on them, typically by a disk protruding from the vertebrae, results in a shooting pain, usually in the leg and foot. Some people experience debilitating numbness that renders them almost incapable of walking; others experience only a tingling sensation in the toes or numbness of the foot or leg. Infrequently, if the lower part of the spinal cord is inflamed, people may experience loss of bladder or bowel control.

    It is difficult to pinpoint disk disease as the cause of most cases of back pain. That is because most adults past the age of 40 - whether they experience back pain or not - can be shown to have some degree of disk degeneration. In most instances, disk degeneration and even herniation do not produce any symptoms.

    Simple muscle strain is another leading cause of back pain. Although symptoms may come on suddenly and can be acutely painful, this is actually a problem that develops over a long period of time. When the muscles contract, lactic and pyruvic acids are produced as by products of muscular activity. It is the presence of lactic acid in the muscles that produces the familiar sensation of muscle fatigue following strenuous activity. If high levels of these acidic byproducts accumulate in the muscles, they cause irritation that can eventually turn into pain and interfere with the normal conduction of electrical impulses in the muscle tissue. This results in a phenomenon called delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS).

    Fibrositis, a rather ill-defined soreness of the neck, trunk, and shoulders caused by inflammation of connective tissue, may also account for a number of backaches. This usually happens in older people and is thought more likely to occur because of stress, tension, allergies, or fibromyalgia rather than from any particular injury.

    Lumbago is a folk term for muscle pain in the lower back, near the pelvis.

    Backaches during pregnancy are commonplace. The abdominal muscles stretch because the uterus is getting bigger and the back muscles are becoming shorter and tighter. Coupled with this, your spine has to support the additional weight, so your posture may change and backaches can result.

    Most cases of back pain also have an important psychological component, usually a deep-seated emotional or stress-related problem. Other contributors can include poor posture, improper footwear and walking habits, improper lifting, straining, calcium deficiency, slouching when sitting, and sleeping on a mattress that is too soft. Kidney, bladder, and prostate problems, female pelvic disorders, and even constipation may produce back pain. Chronic conditions that can cause back pain include arthritis, rheumatism, bone disease, and abnormal curvature of the spine. Fractures are rarely the cause of back pain.

    Because the great majority of back pain cannot be explained - and is not due to protruding disks, arthritis, osteoporosis, poor posture, or any other discernable illness - it is always advisable to take back problems seriously and have them checked out.





    BACKACHE FREQUENT SIGNS & SYMPTOMS

    COMMON COMPLAINTS

  • Chronic or acute pain.
  • Muscle fatigue.
  • Stiffness.
  • Numbness and/or tingling in limbs.
  • Swelling.
  • Spinal subluxation.
  • Pain radiating into legs.
  • Sudden loss of urinary and/or bowel incontinence, difficulty moving and/or weakness of leg, pain and/or numbness are signs of spinal cord nerve damage. Do not move and call for medical assistance.





  • BACKACHE CAUSES

    MUSCLE STRAIN

  • The leading cause of back pain is simple muscle strain. Although symptoms may come on suddenly and can be acutely painful, this is actually a problem that develops over a long period of time. When muscles contract, lactic acid and pyruvic acid are produced as byproducts of muscular activity. It is the presence of lactic acid in the muscles that produces the familiar sensation of muscle fatigue following strenuous activity. If high levels of these acidic byproducts accumulate in the muscles, they cause irritation that can eventually turn into pain and interfere with the normal conduction of electrical impulses in the muscle tissue. This results in a condition called delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS). Problems with acidic build-up are often made worse by dehydration.

  • BONE & SPINAL DAMAGE

  • Intra-vertebral disk damage, degenerative disk, injury, wear, and strain. Herniation, prolapse, or rupture of disk.
  • Arthritis. Facet arthritis.
  • Rheumatism.
  • Bone disease. Spondylosis, Spondylolithesis.
  • Spinal instability or spinal stenosis.
  • Calcium deficiency resulting in Osteoporosis.
  • Abnormal curvature of the spine (scoliosis or kyphosis).
  • Spinal infections and tumors.
  • Fractures, although rarely the cause of back pain.

  • The above conditions can also sometimes lead to spinal nerve compression, giving accompanying symptoms of pain, numbness and or weakness in the lower limbs. Often this might be brought on by walking (neurogenic claudication) and relieved by resting or sitting down. Sometimes the pain might be sharp and unbearable (sciatica).

    STRUCTURAL STRESSES

  • Psychological, emotional or stress-related problem.
  • Poor posture.
  • Improper footwear.
  • Walking habits.
  • Improper lifting.
  • Straining.
  • Slouching when sitting.
  • Sleeping on a mattress that is too soft.

  • CONTRIBUTING HEALTH ISSUES

  • Constipation.
  • Kidney, bladder, prostate problems and female pelvic disorders.
  • Female reproductive disorders or problems. Some women experience lower back pain just prior to their menstrual period.
  • Pregnancy and labor. Some women, when they begin labor, will have a nagging lower backache that comes and goes with regularity. If a woman is expecting a baby in a posterior position (baby is head down, facing toward mother's pubic bone instead of her backbone), back labor is a frequent occurrence. It can be very intense back pain due to the pressure of the baby's skull pressing against the tailbone.

    BACKACHE CONVENTIONAL & ALTERNATIVE TREATMENTS

    IDENTIFYING YOUR PAIN

    HEAD & NECK PAIN

    The most common origins of head and neck pain are neurogenic (nerve root compression, peripheral neuropathy, herpetic neuralgia), soft tissue pain (cervical strain, myofascial pain), musculoskeletal pain (degenerative joint disease, fracture, neoplasm, degenerative disk disease), or sympathetic pain. Depending on pain origin, there are different treatment options.

    UPPER BACK & THORACIC PAIN

    Although upper back pain and thoracic pain are not very common spinal disorders, they tend to result in significant discomfort and pain. Thoracic pain may be caused by internal organ pathology (lung cancer, esophageal disorders, heart disorders), referral pain (cardiac angina, cholecistitis), muscular irritation (myofascial pain), joint dysfunction of thoracic cage and upper back, pain from herniated or degenerated disk, nerve pain (intercostal neuralgia, herpes zoster), pain from osteoporotic vertebra body collapse.

    LOW BACK PAIN

    Low back pain originates from any of four major structures: bone (degenerative joint disease, spinal stenos, facet arthropathy, metastatic malignancy), lumbar disk (herniated nucleus pulposus, degenerated ruptured disk), musculoskeletal system (muscles and ligaments strain, muscular spasm), and nerves (neuropatic pain).

    One of the most difficult types of pain to treat is post-surgical arachnoiditis (failed back surgery syndrome). Up to 85-percent of patients with low back pain cannot be given a definitive diagnosis because of the poor association among symptoms, pathologic findings and imaging results.

    BACKACHE DIAGNOSIS

    In most cases, a back problem can be diagnosed by a health care practitioner from the information given by the patient. An accurate medical history and physical examination would help localize the cause of backache. Additional tests may help further define problems. Usually X-rays and Magnetic Reasonance Imaging (MRI) can help provide various images of the spine. Other radiological investigations like the computerized tomography (CT) scan or bone scans may be required in certain circumstances. Occasionally some other tests might be needed, e.g. HLAB27 for ankylosing spondylitis.

    Chiropractors usually perform a specially thorough examination and will observe the movement of the joints in the spine, pelvis, and hips; perform orthopaedic and muscle tests; and check to see if any nerves are trapped in the spine.

    Generally speaking, it is seldom necessary to take X-rays, scans or blood tests in order to rule out more serious underlying causes of back pain

    BACKACHE TREATMENTS

    MUSCLE WEAKNESS & DISK DEGENERATION

    In most cases of back pain, the cause is either weak back or abdominal muscles or degeneration of the disks that cushion the vertebrae. In addition, bad posture, inactivity, drafts, stress, poor nutrition and obesity can all be contributing factors in back pain.

    The first signs of a weak back are aching shoulders, tense neck muscles and a heavy feeling in the head. If the muscles are truly overloaded, they will go into spasm. Painful as it may be, a spasm is actually helpful because it forces you to stop what you are doing and so prevents more damage. With age, the disks lose moisture and elasticity. This may leave them vulnerable to herniation (prolapse), which puts pressure on the nerves that extend from the spinal cord. Depending on the location of the prolapse, the result may be numbness, tingling and pain in the arms or legs, as well as back pain.

    Exercises to stretch and strengthen the muscles are the key to preventing back problems. Activity is beneficial. Stay active in your life within the limits of your pain. Avoid stooping, bending, lifting and sitting on low chairs. Rest and sleep lying on a firm, flat surface, if possible. Most backaches usually go away in a couple of days.

    herbal compress for back pain

    AN HERBAL COMPRESS FOR BACK PAIN

    When back pain strikes, relieve it with an herbal compress. Soak a towel in hot Bay Laurel or Lavender tea. Place it on top of the affected area and cover with a linen cloth. To intensify the heat treatment, put a hydrocolator or hot water bottle over the towel.


    BACKACHE FIRST-AID - WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR BACK PAIN AT HOME

    Apply ice or a cold compress immediately after an injury to reduce pain, swelling and muscle inflammation. Afterward, switch to heat to enhance circulation, further ease pain and relax tense muscles. Warm baths, particularly whirlpool baths, and massage are also helpful in keeping muscles supple.

    ICE MASSAGE FOR PAIN & SWELLING

    Cold reduces pain sensitivity and ensures fast reduction of the swelling. Place a few ice cubes in a linen bag and ask your partner or a friend to massage the painful areas.

    AN EXCELLENT BACK STRETCH

    The Cat Stretch is one of the most effective exercises you can do to keep your back flexible. Kneel on all fours with your hands shoulder-width apart. Slowly arch your back, placing your chin on your chest (see above). You should feel a gentle stretch in your back muscles; stop if you feel any pain. Hold for 5 seconds. Next, raise your head and press your stomach down toward the floor, making the small of your back concave. Hold for 5 seconds. Repeat the sequence. Perform this exercise for 5 minutes each day. Yoga often provides a low impact, stretching exercises that may be beneficial for some prone to back problems.

  • WILLOW BARK FOR PAIN

    White Willow Bark (Salix alba) was the basis for the synthesis of aspirin. It contains salicin and related compounds. It has been used for more than 2,000 years to relieve aches and pains of all sorts. Today, with the rise in popularity of natural medicine, White Willow is being used by more people as an alternative to aspirin. Aspirin is a synthetic derivative of White Willow Bark. White Willow is being used by more peoople as a safer, natural alternative to aspirin. White Willow Bark is an analgesic, anodyne, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, diaphoretic, and fever reducer. It is used to treat tendonitis, bursitis, headaches, osteoarthritis, dysmenorrhea, rheumatoid arthritis, back pain, toothache, and menstrual cramps. White Willow also works well in soothing a sore throat and reducing the fever and headache associated with upper respiratory tract infections and influenza, and it is easier on the stomach than aspirin.

    Willow bark contains salicylic acid, an active ingredient found in aspirin. White Willow comes in various forms and is an ingredient in many products. A tea made from 1 teaspoon (1 to 2 grams) of White Willow Bark per 1 cup of boiling water. Drink 1 cup three times daily. Tinctures and dry extracts are also available and should be taken in a dose that provides 120 to 240 mg of salicin a day. For other formulations, read and follow product label directions.

    White Willow, if taken over a long period of time, like aspirin, can cause stomach irritation and even bleeding ulcers. Do not give to children due to the risk of Reyeís syndrome. Also, people with aspirin allergies, bleeding disorders, ulcers, kidney disease, liver disease, or diabetes should refrain from using this herb. It is possible that White Willow will interact adversely with alcohol, blood thinners, other anti-inflammatories, methotrexate, metoclopramide, phenytoin, probenecid, spironolactone, and valproate. Safety in pregnant or nursing women is unknown. Do not use willow bark if you have allergies to aspirin or if you are on blood thinners. Always consult with your health care provider or midwife before taking any supplement or using any herbal therapy if you are pregnant, using other medications or have allergies to certain drugs or plant groups.

    HOMEOPATHY FOR BACK PAIN

    Rhus Toxicodendron 30C helps with back pain caused by psychological stress. Consider consulting a health care practitioner familiar with homeopathic medicine for a specific recommendation and dosage for your particular situation.

    Rhus Tox ( Rhus toxicodendron ) is a homeopathic medicine available in a 30C potency. Homeopathic treatments are for pain in joints and ligaments. Portable, convenient and easy to use Homeopathic medicines should be taken regularly to be most effective. The are available in a new clikpak that is well-suited to a busy lifestyle. The pillules are smaller and easier to take than tablets. They can even be dissolved in warm water if preferred. Their sucrose coating and small lactose core means they taste better. To use, press base twice to release two pillules into cap. Unscrew cap and without touching pillules tip them into mouth. Pillules to be sucked or chewed and taken between meals. Suggested dosage for adults and children are 2 pillules every 2 hours for the first 6 doses, then 4 times daily for up to 5 days or until symptoms improve.

    IMPROVING YOUR BACK

  • PHYSICAL THERAPY BACK SCHOOL: If you have chronic back problems, ask your health care provider to refer you to a physical therapist or a back school. These specialized programs, often organized by health insurance companies, teach simple strengthening and stretching exercises that everyone can perform to counteract the unilateral stress on the spine. They also often provide additional information on an overall fitness program to complement the back exercises.

  • SWIMMING: Swimming is probably the best form of exercise for people who suffer from back pain. The water supports your weight, so you do not put stress on your muscles, In addition, this activity uses muscles in the back, abdomen, arms and legs, thus providing overall conditioning. However, avoid the breast stroke and the butterfly, which require arching your back.

  • DRY SWIMMING: If you cannot get to a swimming pool, try "dry swimming." Lie down on your back on a towel or exercise mat. Alternately raise your left arm and your right leg, making swimming movements for 2 seconds. Rest for the same length of time and repeat the same movement with your right arm and left leg. Perform this exercise for up to 10 minutes a day.


  • Extra Tip - To keep your spine aligned when you are sleeping, lie on your side and place one pillow under your head. Bend your knees and place another pillow between them.


    TREATMENT CONSIDERATIONS

    People seeking professional advice about back pain face a bewildering array of generalists and specialists to choose from. Complex back problems are rapidly becoming a sub-specialty. True specialists now focus on people with back problems only. For treatment of back pain, you can consult any of the following types of therapy and practitioners:
    • Acupuncture is performed by an experienced acupuncturist skilled in the ancient art of Chinese healing. This method can help reduce back muscle tension by making adjustments in the flow of Qi (energy) throughout the body. Acupuncture has been proven as an effective pain relief alternative therapy for many people and has the backing of the World Health Organization.

    • Chiropractors are licensed to perform spinal manipulation and may recommend nutritional and/or lifestyle changes. They primarily use high-velocity manipulations of the neck and back to correct problems. According to a 1994 report issued by the U.S. Agency for Health Care Policy and Research, spinal manipulation may the be most effective treatment for acute back pain. Misaligned vertebrae frequently trigger back pain. After a diagnosis is confirmed by x-rays, a chiropractor's skillful manipulation can realign the spine and alleviate the pain. Chiropractors are not medical physicians and therefore cannot prescribe drugs or perform surgery. A good chiropractor should be willing to recommend a medical practitioner if necessary.

    • Kinesiology can sometimes alleviate back problems. By testing muscle response, practitioners can pinpoint the origin of the pain and use various methods, including gentle manipulation, to treat it.

    • Magnet Therapy is gaining ground in some quarters. A magnetic mattress pad has been developed and some people have found relief from chronic back pain after sleeping on it for only a short time. Experiments have shown that magnet back support has proven useful for golfers.

    • Massage Therapists work with muscles and tendons, using different techniques like muscle kneading and compression to lessen tension in the muscles. This increases circulation and helps the body flush out cellular debris, which speeds tissue repair and aids in healing back problems.

    • Orthopedic Surgeons are medical physicians who prescribe medication (pain killers, muscle relaxers, anti-inflammatory drugs), bed rest, and physical therapy for some cases of back pain. Since these health care providers can perform surgery, they may be more likely to recommend it than other practitioners.

    • Osteopaths can prescribe drugs and perform surgery, but because of their philosophy of treatment, they often try manipulation or physical therapy first.

    • Physiatrists are also known as physicians of physical rehabilitation medicine, are medical practitioners who treat back pain by the use of various physical therapies, lifestyle changes, and the use of various physical therapies, lifestyle changes, and back braces, which promote healing by reducing the load on the spine. Physiatrists are not licensed to perform surgery and are less likely than other physicians to hospitalize their patients. They have a good record for treating back problems, including low back pain and herniated disks.

    • Physical Therapists specialize in improving joint and spine mobility and muscle strength. They are not medical physicians and are strictly limited to physical therapy.

    • Vertebroplasty, for vertebral compression fractures, has offered relief for some people, although it is still considered a new and experimental treatment. In this out-patient procedure, a needle inserted through the skin into the affected vertebra fills the vertebra with a cement-like substance called methylmethacrylate, and when this substance hardens (in about 15 to 20 minutes), it offers support to an otherwise weak part of the backbone.

  • There is a theory that backache may be caused by repressed rage. This may be something to consider pursuing with a psychiatrist or other mental health professional.

  • Bed rest makes little difference with sciatica. Both the long-term and short-term consequences of sciatica remain the same whether you observe complete rest or continue your usual routine.

  • With signs of rapidly progressive nerve damage (increasing weakness in a leg, or loss of bladder or bowel function), back surgery moves high on the list of options. It must also be considered when pain is unremitting or getting worse. Surgery always entails a degree of risk; there is always the chance of permanent damage and impaired mobility. According to U.S. government data, only 1 percent of those who suffer from back pain appear to benefit from surgery. Back surgery is useful only for problems in four broad categories:
    • 1. Disk displacement (a protruding or "slipped" disk).
      2. Painful (and abnormal) motion of one vertebra in relation to another.
      3. Narrowing of the spine around the spinal cord itself from over growth of bone (spinal stenosis).
      4. Some cases in which misalignment of one vertebra with another (spondylolisthesis) leads to pain.

  • In the past, removing a damaged disk and fusing a section of the spine was a major surgical procedure. Up to one year was required for recovery from this surgery. A new procedure, called Minimal Access Spinal Technologies (MAST) allows the operation to be performed through small incisions that do not even cut through muscle tissue. Someone who absolutely requires surgery should investigate this option. Recovery time is in the days-to-weeks range rather than months-to-years.

  • X-rays are often considered a routine part of back pain diagnosis, yet only a few back conditions show up on x-rays. If the pain is caused by muscle strain or herniated disk, the x-ray will do little to aid the diagnosis, since disks, muscles and ligaments are all soft tissues. X-ray exposure bears special hazards for pregnant women.

  • With the new imaging procedures such as computerized tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), disks can be seen. However, it is noted that 20 to 30 percent of people with back pain have herniated disks that are not the source of their discomfort. If these disks show up during imaging procedures, a person may end up having surgery for a condition that, while present, is not really the cause of his or her pain.

  • If pain comes after lifting something heavy, after coughing, or after unusually heavy exercise, and the pain prevents you from moving or shoots down one leg, you may have a herniated disk.

  • Epidemiological studies in the United States, as well as studies of smoking and non-smoking pairs of twins in Scandinavia, have shown that smoking aggravates problems in the disks.

  • Numerous studies have shown that people with lower back pain who are treated at chiropractic clinics recover faster, and at less cost, and end up with less pain and more mobility than those treated in hospitals.

In fact, oil of wintergreen was once used to soften leather used in bookbinding. As a liniment, wintergreen is an important ingredient of the popular lotion to relieve overexerted muscles: Ben Gay. Pure oil of wintergreen can cause irritation and must be used cautiously. For external use only. It is poisonous except in very small amounts if ingested.
