After a 12 hour shift my only complaint today is…My back hurts!!

How often do you say that? Back pain can really ruin a normal day and even worse an exciting event or holiday that you have been looking forward too.

I have a big weekend planned and I really hope it gets better, but what is causing it? At the moment all I know is that I want to get into bed and never leave!!

Working in general practice, the most common complaint that I came across was back pain, now most of you must of experienced back pain, it could have been a dull or sharp pain, it may come and go or may constantly be there, reminding you that you are restricted to what you can do.

Anyone can get back pain and unfortunately is more common as you get older.

The back is the surface that runs from neck, shoulders to the hips, it has large groups of muscles that help with the movement of the back and the neck. It is there to support your head and your body, and helps it move in all kinds of directions.

The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that runs down the centre of your back from the brain to just below your belly button, the nerves give instructions to feel and move. The nerves are protected by building blocks of bones. Between these building blocks are discs, which are like cushions, they allow you to move your spine and be flexible, and they also protect the building blocks from grinding against each other as you move.

Back pain can be because of damage to any of these structures.

Muscles can get strained, when your muscles are pulled or used in a way that you are not use to can cause spasms and tenderness. That is why it is important to strengthen your back muscles with regular exercise.

 

The discs, cushions can slip out of place, and press of the nerves, you may get shooting pain. The swelling in the disc will hopefully improve over time and it is important to exercise you back to help with the healing, some people may even need surgery to cut a small piece of the disc to stop it from pressing on the nerves.

As you get older the discs can wear down, this can cause the building blocks to rub against each other and cause arthritis. Arthritis is wear and tear of the bones.

There are many other causes of back pain and please feel free to ask me questions.  It is important that you seek help in times when your back pain causes:

–       change in feeling/numbness

–       problems or change when  weeing or going for a poo

–       weakness

Other reasons why you should see a doctor

–  You are over 50 or younger than 20

– Back stiffness last for longer than 45minutes in the morning

– History of cancer

– Unexplained weight loss

– Recent infection

– Pain that keeps you up at night

– You inject drugs through your veins

– Your immune system is  weak.

 

Otherwise, keep your back moving will help strengthen the muscles over time. I have found yoga the most helpful, it has helped me strengthen my back over time without putting too much strain on it.  I hope this will help slow down the aging process of my spine and keep my muscles strong and flexible!
