Mechanical back pain: A global disability

About


Back pain has now become a topic of common parlance.


About 80% of the global population will experience back pain at some or other point of life.[1]


Mechanical Back Pain:
- Occurs between the ages of 30 and 50
- Is treatable by a medical professional
- May not require diagnosis
- Requires lab test or imaging in severe cases


Almost everyone is a victim to it. Evidently, the spinal cord does a lot of work for a human body. Not just the main structural support, but it helps humans to stand upright and allow flexible movement.



Symptoms


The most common symptoms of back pain include the following:
- Persistent ache or stiffness anywhere around the spine,
- Muscle ache
- Pain in the neck, middle, or lower back, especially after sitting or standing for long hours or strenuous activities
- Unable to stand straight without pain or muscle pull
- Pain while bending, lifting, standing, or walking
- If pain improves by reclining



Treatment


Self-care: Regular exercises, maintaining a healthy weight, quitting smoking, building muscle strength, and flexibility can help avoid back pain for a long period.


Medication: If the back pain is causing new bowel or bladder problems and is accompanied by fever and weight loss, it’s time to see a doctor as soon as possible. X-rays, MRI or CT scan, and EMG can help find the root cause of back pain. This can be accompanied by physiotherapy, medication, acupuncture, etc. Doctors might recommend nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, muscle relaxants to relieve the pain.
