Back pain comes in many forms and can be caused by a number of things. Fortunately, for those suffering from back pain in Beaverton, there is hope. At HealthSource, one of our specialties is back pain treatment.
Common Causes of Back Pain
Back pain can be caused by many things, including:
- Sprains/Strains. Strains and sprains commonly occur as the result of repetitive motions, overuse and accidents. In some cases, sprains and strains are accompanied by joint injuries and/or tearing of ligaments or tendons. Typically, strains and sprains occur in situations where there is enough force to cause abnormal spinal function.
- Muscle Spasms. Muscle spasms may occur in any muscle in the body, but there are especially common in the lower back. They usually occur as the result of old or new injuries, and they can cause pain that varies greatly in intensity.
- Disc Injuries. Sudden severe trauma and years of forceful movements on the spine can lead to ruptured and degenerated discs. The discs, or the cushions between the vertebrae in your spine, can cause considerable pain when injured. Fortunately, these injuries can usually be treated non-surgically.
