"What is the cause of the birth year?" must be the most common question I have heard as a doctor in the past 20+ years. Simple enough question, problem is there is no easy answer.
The cause of lower back pain, or LBP to one condition, can not be defined. There are many causes of back pain. Some are simple and self-limiting stresses, while others are serious situations like a disk that causes nerve damage that requires immediate, specialized treatment. Here is a brief overview of 10 most common causes of lower back and leg pain.
Vertebral changes, or subluxations, occur when the lower back has undergone prolonged stool pressure or strain leading to vertebral joints. After failure, the muscles around tighten and the nerves may irritate. Subluxations are a key failure that heals of chiropractic treat. They can cause pain or be asymptomatic for a long time until they get worse in degenerative disorders. Various physical research, x-ray and computer-based diagnostics are often used to find subluxations.
2. Spine / Sprain
Spine and sprains on the lower back are caused by excessive muscle stress or sprain with either physical or imbalance. Smooth institutions will usually cause pain and / or stiffness within the back of the muscle. The contract of the muscle concerned worsens strains.
Mild strains can settle within a few days of rest. More serious strains / sprains as a result of difficult activities, such as sports, work, horticulture, car accidents and the like, involve widespread damage. When ligaments have been sprained, they usually become very painful in the movement of the affected area. Healing times can be much longer in these cases, as many months as possible. Soft strains can be easily treated at home while severe strains and sprains should be evaluated by a legitimate physician specializing in the vertebral column. If a sufficient infection builds up, the nerves on the lower back may affect myopathy or leg disease, which can cause injury. Body testing will usually be sufficient to accurately analyze. X-ray radiation should be performed in case of physical injury.
3. Facet Syndrome
The small joints in the back of the vertebra that allow movement are called facet joints. Due to the prolonged poor posture, last injury or over effort, the joint may develop arthritis. This infection in the joint causes deep pain in the lower back that is increased by sitting, covering the back and the effort. The diagnosis is made by body examination and confirmed by an X-ray.
4. Degenerative Disc Disease
This is a very common cause of back pain. With repeated twists, turns, lifts and last trauma such as damage to the truck or accident, the discs or the pad between the spine of the bones begin to lose water and worsen. As the disc gets worse, it reduces stress within the joints of the back and sometimes around the nerves that cause back pain and leg. X-ray and meningitis is diagnosed if the pain persists for 30 days.
Arthritis is inflammation of joints. There are many types of arthritis that affect the spine. The most common is osteoarthritis or OA. OA implies a failure of the surface of the joint, causing the team to lose normal motion. As the cartilage is thinner, bone clusters grow around the area to prevent the team from closing. OA is known as osteoarthritis because it is due to prolonged local stress, previous injury and repeated use. Sometimes the genetic development of the cartilage causes it to be too early. OA is diagnosed with the body test and confirmed by an X-Ray.
6. Herniated / bulging disc
The pads between the spinal cord can become weaker due to bodily injury or due to depletion of a disease disorder. The wavy outer layers allow the disc to bulge out sometimes at the touch of the surrounding spinal cord which causes pain in the legs or vasodilation. If the outer layer suffers from damage, the inner gelatinous material of the disc, called the kernel, can expel and irritate the nerves. Prophylaxis analysis can turn off physical examination, but detailed analysis for this cause of the lower back is only available with MRI or CT scanning.
7. Blood Drought
Pain that travels down the back, back to the thigh, the lower leg and the leg is called a vascular film. It is referred to as a large implant that comes from branches in the lower back to provide lower extremities. Blood disease is written off how far down the leg the pain goes. Blood disease can be caused by many diseases such as subluxation, tight muscles, strains, disc disease, inflammation or heartbeat, stroke or tumor. A detailed analysis is performed from body examination and MRI or CT scan of the lumbar spine.
The main opening, which expands the length of the lining of the spinal cord is called a central or spinal cord. Usually there is enough space for spinal and other structures to fit into this opening. Arthritis in spinal cord can cause the joints to expand and push in to reduce the size of the cut. Similarly, swelling discs can also scare the space that causes erections or tribulations. Pressure on the cord and the nerves causes back pain and / or pain in the legs, often worsened by standing and walking and relieving by sitting. This is a common cause of back pain in the elderly.
9. Cauda Equina Syndrome
Pressure on the lower nerves of the lower part of the tray and tray leads to intestinal and / or bladder obstruction. Symptoms can also cause damage around the anus. If you experience any of these symptoms, it is imperative that you have an exam and MRI right away at a hospital. These symptoms are beyond the scope of chiropractic, family doctors or orthopedic. Neurological evaluation is recommended. This condition can be caused by severe disc herniation, stenosis or tumors.
Both benign and malignant tumors are found in the spine and can cause lower back and leg pain. They may present themselves as a pain in the back or may cause pain to scratch the foot (sciatica) due to the presence of the nerve. Most tumors can be seen on x-ray and other images such as MRI and CT scanning. Initial diagnosis can be caused by back pain, which can not be reproduced in a medical examination by your doctor. Mechanical pain due to strain, disk and so on may be caused mechanically or caused. Back pain from organic diseases, such as tumors often, can not cause or worsen by mechanical methods. A history of unexpected weight loss, fatigue, anemia or pain that awakes you in the evening in conjunction with a normal psychological test is very suspicious.
As you can see, there are many reasons for lower back pain, ranging from simple, intrinsic to very serious and deadly diseases. Once the proper diagnosis has been made, appropriate treatment of back pain can be done.
