Back Pain That Doesn’t Heal.?
My name is Risma, I have a friend who is a target of violence to his parents, he is always beaten in the same place on the back almost every week, when his parents die, no one hits him but he always complains of back pain he says it feels the same as being affected punch usually. Already to the clinic the doctor said he was not sick. And that happens until now and sometimes he likes to fear himself if there is an interaction that he thinks is a form of wanting to hit him on the back. He also often has difficulty falling asleep because he always feels the same pain when his back is often hit first. What do you think of my doctor as having a trauma or something? Because I do not believe if it is related to the mystical things that are often talked about by people, how can I help him as a good friend, moreover he never wants to see a doctor again?
Hello Risma, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Back pain is pain that can be felt along the spine, from the base of the neck to the tailbone. Back pain is generally not a disorder or disease but is a symptom of various types of diseases. Pain in the back can be caused by various causes. Before finding out the cause of back pain due to psychological or psychological factors, it is necessary to find out first whether there are physical abnormalities.
Most back pain is harmless and arises because the muscles and surrounding tissues become tense due to factors of habit or daily activities, for example:
Incorrect body position when lifting, carrying, pressing, or pulling items, especially heavy items. For example when taking objects that are located below or on the floor Excessive stretching the body Do not warm up for example when exercising, due to injuries while exercising Improper sitting position Driving for a long time, or in a bent position without pauses Perform movements that are done repeatedly Generally injuries above can be disappear by itself without special handling, and usually will disappear if the habit is avoided. Anti-pain medications can reduce symptoms of mild back pain due to these factors.
But in addition to these behavioral factors, back pain can also be a symptom of a disease such as:
Injuries to the spine, such as falls, exposed to collisions and other trauma that cause damage to structures around the back such as the spine, muscles and so on. Infection or inflammation of the spine Abnormal spine structure can cause back pain. Examples are scoliosis and narrowing of the spinal cord nerve fibers of the spinal cord HNP (herniated Nucleus pulposus), which is the spinal cord that is pinched for some reason. To ensure that further investigation and further interviews are also needed, some supporting examinations can also be carried out if needed. For example, such as spinal X-rays, spinal MRI and so on. You can consult further with an orthopedic doctor to see if there are disturbed bone structures and surrounding tissue. Or if it is found that nerve involvement can then be referred or referred to a neurologist for further treatment.
Back pain can also be caused by psychological or psychological factors such as stress and depression. Abnormalities need to be considered if your friend has run an examination from a doctor, and the pain does not disappear with medication so it needs to think about this other factor, namely psychological factors. But before thinking of back pain that is due to psychological or psychological doctors need to find out by physical examination and supporting examinations to determine the cause.
