In most cases of back pain the reason is that the muscles and ligaments have been overextended. In cases of back pain the pain does not radiate toward other parts of the human body. In the case of a disc hernia the nerves or the blood vessels are pressed upon by a dislocation of the disc. In cases like this the lower limbs will be affected because the blood flow to other parts of the body are affected because of the pressure on the blood vessels.
Types of back pains:
- Disc and spine pain
- Muscle and ligament stressed
- Back pain from accident
- After effects from spine surgery/back surgery
Acupuncture. Some people with low back pain report that acupuncture helps relieve their symptoms. The National Institutes of Health has found that acupuncture can be an effective treatment for some types of chronic pain. In acupuncture, the practitioner inserts sterilized stainless steel needles into the skin at specific points on the body.
If your back pain is caused by tense or overworked muscles, massage therapy may help loosen knotted muscles and promote relaxation.
