Back pain can be originated by two principal causes:
1. BODY STRUCTURAL ISSUE of the spine
We can have different types of spine’s structure modifications such as:
Spinal Issues can lead to the nerves compression due to a Bulging or Herniated Discs, a condition that can be permanent or temporary.
A Bulging Disc is a more common condition, often temporary, caused by overloading the lumbar spinal tract.
The overloading of the lumbar spinal tract can be prudeced by Functional cause ( overuse of musculoskeletal system ) or Structural cause ( reduction of “Shock absorber function” of the Spine).
The shock absorber function of the spine is built by two skeletal systems:
Modifications of the physiological curvatures compromise the shock absorber function of the spine itself.
In the same way, structural issues of the spinal discs ( disc dehydration, disc rupture ) can lead to the reduction of shock absorber function of the spine.
Herniated Disc is a less common condition of the bulging disc but with similar causes, even if with more effects on the spinal structure and back pain symptoms.
Increased stiffness of the back muscles is the most common cause of back pain.
This muscle stiffness can be treated with targeted sports therapy such as a Sports Massage.
Muscular imbalances can be assessed through a high-tech Postural Assessment to check all the forces distibution of our body with the ground.
2. BODY FUNCTIONAL ISSUES OF THE SPINE
Body functional issues of the spine they are caused by all our incorrect postural body behavior during our daily lifetime:
How to cure Back Pain
The first approach to cure back pain is to treat the symptoms.
Treating the symptoms of back pain is a short term therapy to reduce the pain and reestablish an adequate range of motion of the spine.
If we want a therapy with long term effects and reduced chances of back pain recidives, It is important tha the back pain treatments aims to treat and cure the root causes that have generated the back pain.
In fact even if we treat and cure the back pain symptoms ( pain, inflammation, soreness ) , it can come back again after a short time.
In conclusion, to tackle the problem of “Back Pain“, It is essential to consider and analyze all the possible causes that have produced it, as highlighted above.
It is important to treat both the causes and symptoms of your back pain as this is a key factor for a sports therapy with long term effect.
