WHAT IS A SPINE AND BACK PAIN?
The spine is the pillar of our body. It is built of 24 vertebrae, and between them are some intervertebral discs or discs that relieve pressure on the spine, reduce loads and allow it to move. Muscles and ligaments, abdominal and thigh muscles, and hip muscles are also important for smooth bending and rotation of the spine. The most sensitive parts of the spine are the cervical and lumbar parts because they are also the most mobile. That is why pains in these parts of the spine are the most common.
WHY SPINE AND BACK PAIN OCCURS?
Pain in the lower and upper back can occur due to various factors such as physical work with lifting, pulling, or pushing loads, unnatural body position during work, prolonged sitting, standing work, incorrect lying, less muscle strength, obesity, and the like. It is also possible that the pain in the lower or upper back is a combination of different causes. It is crucial to assess the intensity and duration of pain, and in case of severe or long-lasting pain, you should contact a doctor who will prescribe the appropriate treatment. Most doctors will recommend drug therapy or analgesic creams and rest, and after the pain stops, regular exercises to strengthen the spine.
