Common Causes of Back Pain

We commonly hear the following statements from people with back pain, “My Back Pain isn’t getting better and I’ve been told it might be a disc problem,” or “Won’t this just go away?” Symptoms like back pain are signs and signals from your body telling you to STOP and address the problem. Below are a few answers to those common questions:

“My Back Pain isn’t getting better, and I’ve been told it might be a disc problem.”

There are two types of Disc problems that can give someone back pain:

1. Bulging Discs are a common problem where a weakened area of the annulus (fibrous tissue) allows the softer jelly-like nucleus of the disc to bulge outward like a balloon. This outward bulging can put pressure on the nearby nerves. Bulging disc cases respond well to the treatment we provide in our office.

2. A Herniated or Ruptured Disc can be more serious. These types of problems can occur anywhere in the spine but are most commonly seen in the low back. This is when part of the jelly-like nucleus pushes out of the annulus and into the spinal canal. These injuries are usually due to trauma or long term degeneration.

“Given Time, won’t this back pain just go away?”

Given time it might just go away. It might also come back. If you avoid addressing back pain, it might may return with a vengeance! Untreated pain comes at a cost. Pain causes inflammation and inflammation leads to arthritis, not the other way around.
