What Is Causing Your Low Back Pain? THE IDEAL TREATMENT FOR LOW BACK PAIN

Do you suffer from an aching back? Whether it is a short-lived muscle spasm, or a long-term problem, your back is telling you something! Your spine is a complex structure made up of bones, muscles, discs, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. It is the hub of your nervous system where messages to and from your brain travel to different parts of your body. It is so complex, that it takes years for you to master the ability to stand up straight, walk, and run. As we age, it is very common to suffer aches and pains in the lower back, typically because of poor posture and prolonged sitting, or previous injuries; however aches and pains are a sign of underlying problems. Your spine relies on proper posture, alignment, strength, and coordination. When any one of these key areas doesn’t work right, strain and stress occurs on the spine, sparking inflammation and pain. Inflammation weakens the spinal muscles and legmuscles, causing difficulty with everyday activities. Getting up and down from the floor, squatting, standing for long periods, and even walking can become a problem. This can really affect your life and the longer the problempersists, themore long-termdamage can occur.

Quickly Relieve Low Back Pain. Most low back pain can easily be treated with physical therapy and without the need for surgery, or prolonged medication. Physical therapy can reduce inflammation, restore proper function, restore normal back strength and prevent future injury. Maintaining and building muscle strength is particularly important to getting you back to doing the things you love to do, without worrying about the pain. Not all low back pain is the same, so your treatment will be tailored to for your specific symptoms and condition. Once the examination is complete, your physical therapist will evaluate the results, identify the factors that have contributed to your specific back problem, and design an individualized treatment plan for your specific back problem. Our physical therapists have years of medical training and skills to thoroughly evaluate and pinpoint the cause of your back pain.

3 COMMON SPINE PROBLEM AREAS FINDING THE SOURCE TO BACK PAIN

Whether you have back pain, neck pain, or radiating arm / leg pain, we can help. Your spine must be flexible, strong, and healthy in order for you to maintain a pain free body. We ensure that you’ll achieve the best results for your back/neck pain with the Marketplace Physical Therapy & Wellness Center spine program.

UPPER SPINE Pain or injury here is often responsible for headaches to the scalp and face. This area helps with overall body balance and the ability to rotate the neck. Conditions involving the upper spine often present as limited motion and contribute to a forward head posture. As a result, this increases strain on the neck causing muscle pain and tension. In addition, weakness and pain to the shoulders, arms, hands, and fingers can be common. MID SPINE Pain or injuries here can cause limited motion and mid-back pain. The nerves exiting this area are responsible for digestion, heart and lung function. Limited motion here also increases the amount of strain on the lower spine. LOWER SPINE A common area of low back pain and radiating leg pain. This area can cause a significant amount of back pain because it is supposed to rotate with walking. Furthermore, this is a common area for disc herniation that can cause pain, numbness and tingling into the buttocks, thighs, legs or feet.

Tips For Wellness WHEN TO USE ICE & HEAT FOR PAIN RELIEF

When you’ve just sprained your ankle or pulled a muscle, all you want is some pain relief. If painkillers are handy, you probably pop a couple of them. If not, you ask for some ice... or was that heat instead? To sort out this confusion, let’s see what they really do. Both ice and heat relieve pain and help recovery. How to use ice Ice is useful when you want to reduce swelling. For example, your ankle balloons up after a sprain. This is because blood and fluid collect rapidly, making it both painful and stiff. At this point, an ice pack helps to close off those tiny vessels. The blood flow slows down. Small nerves become numb, so the pain reduces. The muscles also relax. The inflammatory reaction is slowed down. As a result, your ankle is less swollen and painful. Ice packs are very useful in bruises, strains and joint swellings. Use them for any acute swelling, over the first 24 to 48 hours (except back strains). Ice helps later too, while exercising the limb. Our friendly therapists can show you how tomakemovements less painful andmore flexible by using an ice pack just before or during exercise. How to make an ice pack Wrap a plastic bag of frozen peas or ice cubes in a thick cold wet towel. Place it on the injured part. Check after a few minutes to make sure the skin is not red, an early sign of frostbite. Generally, icing for 15 to 20 minutes is enough. Repeat every 2-4 hours. Our therapists will help use ice properly for healing and pain relief. How to use heat Heat packs, bottles or infra-red lamps can be very useful if you have a muscle spasm or 48 hours after injury. Icing a muscle spasm contracts the muscle fibers, so they would hurt intensely. On the other hand, heat improves the circulation, soothes and relaxes the muscles by carrying away toxins and bringing in healing oxygen. Heat can comfort a back or neck strain, especially if it has been persisting for some time. When you use a heat pack, wrap it in a towel and check the temperature so it doesn’t burn the skin. When not to use heat Don’t use heat if you have a painful, red or swollen joint. This increases circulation so that fluid collects, worsening the swelling and stretching or compressing the nerves and surrounding healthy tissue. This makes it still more painful. You’d be better off icing it.

When to use neither heat nor ice Whether you use hot or cold packs, be aware that you can damage your skin and deeper tissues by careless use. Don’t use it if you have an open or infected wound. If the circulation or sensation level is poor, as in diabetes, ice and heat could cause the skin to break down, get infected and worse. But in ordinary injuries, ice and heat provide inexpensive, non-toxic pain relief. Visit us for more help with using ice or heat. We’ll speed up your recovery and get you moving more easily.
