There are many causes and treatments for middle back pain. When lower middle back pain causes problems most people think the injuries may be caused by lifting items in the wrong way or slouching over a desk for hours on end. And it is true that these things can certainly cause lower back pain.
However, lifting a heavy weight or bad posture aren’t the only causes of lower back pain. One cause that is often overlooked is a kidney infection. Of course, not all lower back pain will be caused by a kidney infection but it should definitely be kept in mind. And if a back sufferer doesn’t recall injuring their back in any way then a kidney infection might be the problem.
That is why getting a diagnosis and subsequent treatment for the back pain early on is so important because if left untreated other problems might result from the delay in seeking medical help.
Another cause of neck and middle back pain is misalignment of the spine. Proper alignment of the spine is crucial not only for the back’s health but for your body health in general. A chiropractor will be able to help you with this – although you might have to sign up for a course of treatment.
Suffering with pinched nerves is another cause of back trouble and can be extremely painful. You may get a shooting pain from a pinched nerve when you move in a certain way. Sometimes it feels like a constant stabbing pain.
Generally the most common causes of lower back problems are muscle injuries of one sort or another. Whilst nerve injuries feel like stabbing, shooting pains, muscle injuries tend to give a throbbing pain.
Because muscle injuries to the lower back are fairly common, most people dose themselves up with pain-killer tablets, and hopefully after a few days the pain goes away. Heat wraps or a Tens machine can help to ease the pain. Exercise and stretching can sometimes help heal a painful lower back. Treatments for back pain will vary from person to person. What therapy works for one does not even touch the pain suffered by another.
