Different Types of Back Pain Evaluated & Treated
Back pain is a broad term encompassing pain and dysfunction in the upper (cervical), middle (thoracic), and lower (lumbar) spine. Sometimes, an exact diagnosis or identifiable underlying cause is not clear; in these cases, a person can be said to have "idiopathic" back pain (but even these cases can respond to the chiropractic care NYC offers!).
When a specific diagnosis is deductible, our New York City chiropractor often finds the following:
- Muscle strains and spasms (either stand-alone or as compensatory guarding over an area of injury)
- Joint misalignment (e.g., facet joint lock, anterolisthesis, spondylosis)
- Disc herniation, disc bulge, or degenerative disc disease
- Nerve impingement (e.g., cervical or lumbar radiculopathy, sciatica)
Back pain often occurs with or due to another underlying condition, such as fibromyalgia or depression. It's also a common after-effect of an auto accident injury, sports injury, or personal injury (e.g., slip and fall).
Common Causes of Back Pain: What's Triggering Yours?
Factors which contribute to your back pain diagnosis can include both genetic and environmental considerations. Significant risk factors include:
- Poor posture
- Excessive sedentary behavior
- Heavy lifting, improper body mechanics, and repetitive movements (especially during work or sports)
- Age (especially over the age of 40)
- A prior history of back pain or back injury
