  • Pain in the back London

    Peace, Communication Design

    Back pain London is unfortunately something that most people will suffer from at some point in their life. The pain can vary from a general ache throughout the back to more acute pain in a specific area. It often has a relatively minor cause, such as bending the back, rather than the knees, when lifting, making an awkward movement or maintaining an uncomfortable posture for a long period etc. In some cases the person suffering from the back pain will never know what actually caused it. Generally with some gentle exercise and painkillers it disappears within three months with no further cause for concern.

    There are several lifestyle choices that affect the likelihood of a person suffering from back pain London. For example if someone is overweight, the extra weight puts additional pressure on their spine, leaving it more vulnerable to injury. A pregnant woman clearly has the same additional risk due to the added weight of the baby that she is carrying. Stress can add tension to a person's body, which means that the back muscles are not relaxed and are more likely to become painful. Finally, certain medication taken long term also weakens bones, which means the spine is more likely to get damaged or cause back pain.

    While some back pain London is very general and minor, there are several different types of back pain that can be experienced. The back has bones, muscles, nerves, tissue and joints that can all cause pain. This can make it very difficult to determine exactly where the pain is and equally problematic to identify the cause of the pain. Some of the medical conditions that can cause acute pain in the back include sciatica, frozen shoulder, whiplash and a slipped disc. These all need to be assessed by a doctor, in order that they can diagnose the problem and provide you with a treatment plan.

    So, in summary, the vast majority of people who suffer from back pain London will only experience a relatively minor pain that will not significantly affect their lifestyle and will recover with pain killers and gentle exercise within the next three months. However, there will of course be an unlucky few who suffer from a significant accident, or who have a more serious medical condition causing an acute back pain, such as sciatica, frozen shoulder or a slipped disc. In these cases they will need to be assessed by a doctor and, following diagnosis, a specific treatment plan will be provided.
