Nobody is Immune from Spine Pain – Take Action

 

UW Medicine Orthopedics and Sports Medicine experts state up to 500,000 Americans exhibit symptoms of spinal stenosis because of spine degeneration.


Your spine is a row of 26 bones on your back that enables you to bend over and sit up straight. Your spine also helps protect your spinal cord from getting damaged. When you have spinal stenosis your spine is narrowed or obscured in at least one of three parts; space at the center of your spine, where the nerves bunch out of your spine (canals), or between the bones of your spine.


What this narrowing does is trigger unnatural pressure on your spinal cord and nerves and this is the culprit of your pain.


Who Generally Gets Spinal Stenosis?

Normally people that are over the age of 50 deal with this, younger people born with a narrow spine canal, or perhaps people that have had spine trauma.


Causes of Spinal Stenosis Are…


*Aging – A natural part of the aging process are symptoms that may trigger spinal back pain. Where the joints become swollen, the bands of tissue around the spine become less mobile, or where the surface of the bone gets larger, otherwise known as bone spurs.


*Genetics – Some people are born with circumstances that develop into spinal stenosis later on in life. Scoliosis is a trigger disease where the spine is curved.


*Arthritis – This condition is chronic and causes immobility over time. Both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis can be triggers for upper back pain.


*Other – Tumors, high levels of fluoride, injury, calcium deposits or Paget’s disease are also causes of spinal stenosis.


Issues with joints often progress with time. That makes treatment and diagnosis essential along with a pain management schedule that works for you with all your preferences, tolerances, and life situations. The sooner you take action with your spine pain the better.


So What’s the Spondylolisthesis Thesis?


WebMD specialists state that spondylolisthesis a condition where one of your back bones slides further down than the one below it. Usually this occurs in the lower back area and is often the trigger for a pinched nerve. The trouble with this condition is it can have no symptoms for years or it can be so severe you lose control of your bowels.
