Spine Pain

Symptom – Are you experiencing Spine Pain?

Spine pain refers to discomfort, achiness, or sharp sensations in the back – more specifically at or around the spine.

What is causing your spine pain?

There are many reasons why you may be experiencing spine pain. A herniated disc, degenerative disc disease, arthritis, spinal stenosis, cervical radiculopathy, spondylolisthesis, and injury caused by an accident or a direct blow can all cause spine pain.

A herniated disc is the protrusion of the shock-absorbing discs in between each vertebra. It can cause pain and neural issues, radiating in other parts of the body – often the low back, buttocks, and legs. Degenerative disc disease is when the discs become worn down – or dehydrated – over time. This causes painful bone-on-bone contact. And it can also lead to a herniated disc.

Spinal stenosis is the narrowing the spinal canal. It creates pain and pressure on your spine and nerves. Cervical radiculopathy is a pinched nerve in the neck – causing pain. Spondylolisthesis, on the other hand, is the slippage of a vertebra out of its normal position.

Spine pain may also be caused by injury – such as a fracture, sprain, or strain. Pregnancy or arthritis may also cause pain or pressure to build in the spine.

How can I relieve my spine pain?

Like most injuries or pain conditions, it is important to get a proper diagnosis from your family doctor. They can help determine the exact cause and help you decide on an appropriate course of treatment.

Massage therapy can frequently help relieve spine pain and discomforts. Massage can alleviate soreness and tightness in muscles and tissues around the spine. It also promotes blood flow – bringing the necessary cells to help heal the affected area. Click the ‘BOOK NOW’ button below to book your next massage appointment.
