Back pain has reached epidemic proportions. In the U.S., it has become of the most common reasons for visiting a doctor’s office, and also the primary culprit for lost work days. Back pain may develop slowly and become chronic over time, or there may be a sudden onset following an incident, such as a car accident, sporting mishap, or even lifting a heavy object the wrong way. Tracking down the source of back pain can be tricky because it tends to be secondary or “referred pain,” meaning that the real problem frequently begins in some other area of the body. Usually, back pain originates in the spine. Spine Basics The human spine is complex. It consists of 24 moveable, ring-shaped bones called vertebrae, which are all connected by means of 144 joints. Between each vertebra is a cushiony disc that acts as a shock absorber and provides support. There are ligaments that connect the bones to one another, and cartilage to help the joints glide smoothly. Tendons connect the spine’s bones to surrounding muscles. Running straight down the center of the spinal column is a bundle of nervous tissue called the spinal cord, which allows communication between the brain and every other area of the body. When dysfunction occurs in one part of the spine, it tends to affect all the other parts. Back Pain Is Just The Messenger Pain is your body’s way of sending a message that something is amiss. If it weren’t for pain symptoms, you could do irreparable damage to yourself as you go about your daily activities. Pain relievers may temporarily silence the message that something is wrong, but that doesn’t mean the problem has gone away. Meanwhile, the pain relievers themselves can do tremendous harm. Aspirin, ibuprofen and acetaminophen have possible side effects ranging from mild stomach pain to ulcers, gastrointestinal bleeding, and liver failure. One goal of chiropractic is to alleviate pain by correcting the underlying cause, rather than merely masking symptoms with potentially harmful drugs.
