Extreme Back Pain and Understanding How and When the System Breaks Down!

How Your Back Works and When the System Breaks Down

Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines.

—Robert H. Schuller

 

Let’s look at the spinal system—muscles, connective tissue, joints, bones, and nerves.

 

The spine is a very complex system and, to understand how it works, you need a basic comprehension of how its components work. No one component is more important than the other, as they all have to function and integrate properly in order to limit damage. The bones provide rigid support, while the muscles and connective tissue stabilize the joints, and the master system that controls all of the muscles is comprised of the nerves. All of these components have to work in a coordinated manner.

    • The lower back is made up of vertebrae, bones that are stacked one on top of the other.
    • In between each of the vertebrae is a disc, the cushion between the bones of your spine. The discs carries 70 percent to 80 percent of your body weight.

 

  • The ligaments are strong connective tissue that attaches the bones together.

 

  • Tendons are strong connective tissues attaching muscles to bones.

 

Any dysfunction of the above can lead to abnormal movement, wear and tear, or bony and soft tissue decay, thus leading to pain.
The back anatomy includes small nerves that control tiny muscles, holding your spine in alignment. The muscles control the joints, so it is very rare if you have an isolated nerve problem. When you have an injury or dysfunction of the spine via micro or macro trauma, the nerves that control the muscles do not fire properly. The muscles stop moving the joints of your spine, create joint misalignment or improper movement, and allow stagnation of fluid that lubricates your joints. The body slowly deteriorates—weeks, months, years pass, and potentially culminates into back pain or possible degenerative disc disease. This can set up a high probability category for disc herniations, disc bulges, nerve pain, muscles spasms, chronic pain, and impairment. As you see, it is a complicated system.

Check out my next blog and we will  take a look at different conditions that cause back pain.
