Pain In The Back After Exercise?
Night. A week ago I experienced back pain caused by falling and getting hit by a volleyball at the same time, and the pain is still often felt until now, even when on the move. Please the solution
Hello Dewi Aryani,
Pain in the back after exercise can occur due to the following things:
Contusio musculorum is an injury to the soft tissue under the skin and muscles due to collisions. Usually accompanied by swelling, bruising in the affected area, feels pain when pressed. Handling is done with a compress with ice (immediately after the incident) and then continued with a warm compress, avoid heavy activity, avoid collision again in the injured area.
Muscle strains or ligament sprain, muscles and ligaments stretch too much or tears occur. Symptoms that appear include a stiff back, pain, can be accompanied by swelling in the area that has a sprain / strain. Handling is done by limiting activities, not exercising for a while (1 week); if the incident is still new (<24 hours) can be directly compressed ice in the painful part, if it has been long can give a warm compress; avoid heavy lifting or activities that overload the back muscles for at least 4-6 weeks; You can take pain relievers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen, pain medications higher than that should be consulted directly to the doctor about their use.
The nucleus pulposus (HNP) herniation is usually caused by excessive and continuous overload of the spinal column, causing the bone bearing to be damaged and its central part to protrude so that it irritates the spinal cord. Symptoms experienced in addition to pain in the back is pain that radiates to the legs, the patient will have difficulty walking because of sharp pain that is felt. Diagnosis of HNP requires investigation such as spinal radiograph and MRI. Therapy includes the use of corsets to improve posture and help reduce the burden on the spine, administration of pain relievers, physiotherapy, and definitive measures of spinal surgery.
Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
