24 Aug Treating Back Pain that Moves Around
Figuring out what’s causing your back pain is difficult enough when it’s stationary. But what if your back pain moves around and impacts different areas of the spine over time? This article will focus on back pain that moves around and doesn’t stay in one spot. It can be extremely difficult to pinpoint and diagnose this type of pain, but here are a few tips.
Causes of Mobile Back Pain
Here are a few potential conditions that may be contributing to your moving back pain:
- Spinal Nerve Issues. Nerves are incredibly complex. They communicate pain and other sensory signals throughout the body. When a nerve is pinched or damaged, these signals can get crossed and pain can be the result.
- Bulging Discs. Whether from an acute injury or degenerative condition, herniated discs can mess with the nerves in the spine.
- Spinal Stenosis. Marked by a narrowing of the spinal canal, stenosis can pinch nerves and cause all sorts of irregularities along the spine.
Treating Mobile Back Pain with Spine Surgery
Successfully treating any type of back pain requires a clear diagnosis before anything else. If you start treating your back pain without knowing the underlying cause you are playing a guessing game that will waste time and ultimately cause you more pain. Depending on the cause of your back pain, you may benefit from conservative treatment options such as over-the-counter NSAIDs, injections, and physical therapy. More severe conditions (especially those involving the nerves in the spine) might require a minimally invasive surgical procedure.
