Back Pain

Back Pain

  • Physical Therapy in Islandia

Back pain is a common condition that many people suffer from. Although common, the severity and cause of back pain differ depending on the type that it is. At Spine & Sports Rehabilitation Pain Management, we offer physical therapy in Islandia that can help treat those who suffer from back pain.

There are many different types of back pain such as:

Muscle Spasm

A muscle spasm occurs when your back muscles are strained due to heavy lifting, bending over too fast, or sleeping in an uncomfortable position.

Trigger Points

Trigger points are tight spots in muscles that can spread pain throughout the body. Trigger points in back muscles can cause pain in the neck, legs, or feet when pressed.

Ligament Sprains

Ligaments are fibrous tissues that connect bone to bone. When a ligament in the back becomes strained, it creates pain outside of the area of the strain.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a condition where the cartilage and bone in the body break down. When this breakdown happens in the spine, it creates pain in the back, buttocks, and legs.

Herniated Discs

In order to protect the vertebrae from friction, impact, and other forces, they are cushioned by spinal discs. It is common that a disc can protrude from the spinal column and press on nerves that extend from the spinal cord to the legs. Herniated discs can create pain, numbness, and other discomforts.

Spinal Stenosis

When the space in the spinal cavity is tightened or compressed, it places pressure on the nerves that could lead to pain in the back.

If you believe you may be suffering from any of these conditions, we offer physical therapy in Islandia that can help you diagnose and treat your back pain.
