The back pain can be acute or chronic when it persists beyond 3 months. To relieve him, one must, of course, know the exact cause. Your doctor will do a thorough examination and a full examination before prescribing, if necessary, additional tests to confirm his diagnosis. He can then propose, if necessary, a suitable treatment. Back pain is often associated with poor postures, you will have to correct your daily habits: adopt the right positions in everyday life, exercise adapted to strengthen the back and abdominals, etc. In many cases, these preventive measures are sufficient to relieve back pain and to prevent it from reappearing.

WEAR OF THE JOINTS
In our daily movements, vertebral joints are subject to strong constraints. This is especially the case in the lumbar vertebrae, located at the bottom of the column and at the crossroads of many forces (pressure, weight, shear, etc.). It is especially the posterior (rear) joints that are most likely to suffer from our bad positions, the carrying of loads, etc. The cervical vertebrae are subject to lesser forces, but they are extremely mobile. At this level of the column, it is, therefore, the repeated and unsuitable movements that can damage the joints in the long term. This chronic wear can lead to progressive destruction of the cartilage located between each joint and create osteoarthritis (rheumatic degenerative damage), causing pain. Osteoarthritis is a common cause of back pain, especially after 40 years. The pains caused are rather muted and chronic, accentuated at night and during periods of prolonged immobility. They cause stiffness in the joints, particularly noticeable in the morning when waking up. Talk to our medical representative at Kennewick Chiropractic Injury Clinic to discuss your problems.
DISEASES THAT AFFECT THE JOINTS
Some rheumatic diseases can affect the spine. This is the case of ankylosing spondylitis, an autoimmune disease that is manifested by outbreaks of arthritis and inflammation of the tendons and ligaments. The lower spine and the sacroiliac joint are the preferred locations for this disease, which affects adolescents and young adults more frequently. It is characterized by chronic lower back pain and morning stiffness of the spine, which improves with movement. Another bone disease that can cause pain in the spine: osteoporosis. This condition, characterized by a decrease in bone density, can affect the entire skeleton. Spinal involvement affects women more than men, especially after menopause and falling estrogen levels.
Are you afraid that you are suffering from it?
Don’t worry, Kennewick Chiropractic Injury Clinic has the solution! Other deviations from the spine may be painful, the most common being scoliosis. This deformation occurs during growth, with no identifiable cause in the majority of cases. The vertebral column, which presents a natural curvature in the physiological state, can then deform in several directions, the most common being lateral deformation (leaning to the side). If scoliosis becomes painful, these pains are rheumatic, a kyphosis is a particular form of scoliosis. This attack corresponds to an exaggeration of the natural curvature of the column at the level of the dorsal vertebrae, causing a “curved back” impression. The cervical and lumbar parts adapting their own curvature to compensate for this malformation, multiple pains can appear at different levels of the spine.
Patients with spina bifida also face chronic back pain. This condition is related to a lack of closure of the neural tube during embryonic development, which then becomes the spinal canal containing the spinal cord. Such a diagnosis is usually made from birth. Spina bifida

Backache Of Neuralgic Origin
The pains of nervous origin correspond to “pinches” or “compressions”. These pains are the sign of a conflict in a nerve root or a very innervated ligament (such as the posterior ligament of the spine), caused by a herniated disc or osteoarthritic outgrowth. The nerve pinches at the osteoarthritic joints are described in the same way: during a movement, a sharp and lightning pain appears at the level of the nervous conflict and can radiate, as in the case of a hernia, towards the zoned concerned innervation.

Backache Of Muscular Origin
This is the infamous lumbago or “kidney tower”. It occurs suddenly in the lumbar region, after a false movement, and is accompanied by a sensation of “rupture”, “tearing” or “breakdown”. The pain is sudden, intense and paralyzing. Often, there is no particular damage to the joints or discs. There is a very significant inflammation of the muscles and ligaments around the spine. The pain is accentuated by coughing, sneezing, defecation. They are relieved when lying down, which often causes people suffering from lumbago to remain motionless. It is however recommended to move as much as possible, movement being the best treatment against lumbago.
