Back Injuries

Muscle Strain

A muscle strain in the back is caused by an injury to the muscle or tendon. Back strains can happen due to twisting, pulling, or improper lifting. Chronic strains can also occur if the muscles and tendons are being overused repetitively.

Sprain

A back sprain is caused by stretching or tearing of a ligament. Most back sprain injuries result from falling or twisting, pushing the joint out of its usual position. Injury happens when the ligament is stretched outside the limits of its normal range of motion.

Back Conditions

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis, also known as wear and tear arthritis, is the most common form of arthritis and can affect certain joints, including the spine. The cartilage that is in the joint can lose elasticity, diminish, and become inflexible leading to pain.

Bulging & Ruptured Discs

Bulging discs usually happen when the soft tissue in the disc bulges and puts pressure on a nerve. A ruptured disc happens when a disc between vertebrae slip out of their usual place, it will lead to discomfort and pain. It is also possible that a disc will hit a nerve causing numbness unlike a bulging disc.

Cervical Radiculopathy

Cervical radiculopathy is often called a pinched nerve. It’s normally caused by a herniated disc or wear-and-tear changes in the spine. This is something that can develop suddenly or gradually.
