Sore Back? Stiff Joints? We Can Help!
If you have back pain, you are not alone. About 80 percent of adults experience lower back pain at some point in their lifetimes.
Men and women are equally affected by lower back pain, which can range from a dull, constant ache to a sudden, sharp sensation that leaves the person incapacitated.
Most lower back pain is acute which is short term and lasts a few days to a few weeks
Acute back pain is defined as a disruption in the components of the back (the spine, muscle, intervertebral discs, and nerves) and how they fit together and move.
Chronic back pain is defined as pain that persists for 12 weeks or longer, even after an initial injury or underlying cause of acute low back pain has been treated. About 20 percent of people affected by acute low back pain develop chronic low back pain with persistent symptoms in one year.
What causes lower back pain?
Lower Back Pain
Most lower back pain is associated with general degeneration of the spine associated with normal wear and tear that occurs in the joints, discs, and bones of the spine as people get older.
Other causes may come from:
• Sprains and strains
• Intervertebral disc degeneration
• Herniated or ruptured discs
• A traumatic injury
• Skeletal irregularities
What can I do for a sore back and stiff joints?
Stiff joints can be annoying at the best of times and massage therapy is a great way to get relief. Massage therapy helps to provide relief to the muscles and other soft tissues that are often reacting to a strain. Stress can come in the form of physical stress or other tension of the body from anxiety and other occupational stresses.
