Pain In The Left Spine?
I’m 35 years old, I’ve been experiencing pain in the right spine for 3 days, I’ve been feeling it for 4 years, sometimes the pain goes away, when I apply the balm the pain goes away, but I’m afraid I have to use the balm too often, what’s the solution?
Hi Nurlely Nely,
Back pain as you are experiencing basically can be caused by disorders of the bones, joints, ligaments, discs (spinal pads), nerves, muscles, or organs around the back and waist. There are various possible causes of back pain, including:
Improper posture or body position while on the move, sitting, standing or lying down Muscle tension or muscle injury Excessive stretching of the muscles Sudden body movements or changes in body position Excessive weight Sciatica Osteoarthritis (pressure and irritation of the sciatic nerve) Bone deformities HNP/hernia nucleus pulposus (protrusion of the spinal cord) Spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spinal cord causing compression of the spinal cord) Osteoporosis Kidney disorders
Given the complaints have been going on for a long time, you should see a doctor so that they can be examined further to trace the cause. In addition to performing a physical examination, the doctor may recommend supporting tests such as X-Ray or CT Scan if needed for further analysis. Thus, the causes of complaints that arise can be identified and appropriate treatment given according to their basic conditions.
Suggestions you can do:
While on the move, or when sitting, standing or lying down, try to maintain the correct posture and position Limit physical activities that can strain the back such as bending over or lifting heavy weights Avoid sudden or sudden body movements If the pain bothers you can take over-the-counter medications pain relief such as paracetamol Warm or cold compresses can help reduce pain Avoid massaging or massaging the sore back Lose weight if excessive
