Back pain treatment
Back pain (dorsalgia) is a common complaint among patients, a common cause of seeking medical attention and temporary disability.
The source of back pain can be:
Reasons for the appearance
The causes of back pain are physiological conditions, for example, a heavy load, or pathological disorders, which signify some pathologies, in particular, of the spinal column. Back pain can be provoked by:
Often, all the above reasons are links of one chain – osteochondrosis – a chronic, degenerative – dystrophic disease of the spine.
Most of the causes of back pain in the early stages do not require complex medical treatment and do not carry the risks of a health hazard. But sometimes more serious treatment is necessary, in some cases even surgery.
Symptoms may vary, depending on which part of the spinal column has undergone changes or has been damaged. Characteristics of pain, in the presence of which it is necessary to immediately seek medical help, are:
With pathological back pain, digestion is most often disturbed, pelvic organs do not function correctly, and sudden severe weight loss is observed for no apparent reason.
Treatment of back pain is carried out only after finding out the causes of its occurrence. Often back pain is provoked by excessive physical activity or prolonged staying in the same position. In such cases, the pain goes away on its own with the elimination of the causative factor. But in some cases, the causes are much more serious, they need to be diagnosed as quickly as possible, and treatment should be carried out so as not to aggravate the disease.
Back pains are not specific and without a diagnosis, it is not possible to reliably identify the factors of their occurrence.
