Pain and the Spine: Anatomy of a Back Problem

Pain and the Spine: Anatomy of a Back Problem

A Chiropractor Explains Your Pain

Why does it hurt so much when you try to go from sitting to standing? Why do you wake up in the morning with an aching back? What are those shooting pains running down your back to your leg? An aching back can take many forms, from neck stiffness to low back pain. Fortunately for Oviedo chiropractic clinic focuses on spine and posture careour patients here at Oviedo Family Chiropractic, we have a detailed understanding of all of them.

When we talk about the cervical, thoracic or lumbar spine, we are actually talking three different areas of the spinal column -- the neck area (cervical), the part that supports the upper body or thorax (thoracic), and the lower section that connects to the pelvis (lumbar). You can experience pain in any of these sections, especially if one of the fragile discs that support the vertebrae becomes dislodged or ruptured due to poor posture, a skeletal irregularity or an injury.

Cervical injuries such as whiplash can cause pain and stiffness in the neck, often accompanied by chronic headaches. These injuries are common in auto accident cases or contact sports. The thoracic vertebrae are also vulnerable to disc problems or degenerative conditions such as osteoarthritis. Osteoporosis in these vertebrae also leads to compression fractures. A disc herniation or pinched nerve in the lumbar region is a leading cause of low back pain. To make matters worse, if the sciatic nerve is affected you may experience pain, numbness and tingling in the legs associated with sciatica.
