Back Pain

Back pain is subdivided into two categories, chronic and acute.

Chronic Back Pain

Chronic back pain is often localized in one specific area of the back, and it can spread to the upper shoulder region or travel to the legs. Its pain is usually a deep, burning sensation which can develop into tingling or numbness. Chronic pain often evolves from arthritis, previous injuries, or car wrecks and can make daily activities such as typing, opening the door, and even walking.

Acute Back Pain

Acute back pain is often felt in the lower back and ranges in severity. In most cases, it strikes the muscle in one area and causes immense pain. Contusions, torn muscles, or strained joints often lead to problems of the back and shoulder, decreased mobility, and muscle spasms. Often resulting from trauma or injury, acute back pain has no definitive cause but heals quicker than chronic pain, averaging 6-8 weeks.

Back and shoulder pain treatment

There are several things that can be done to treat yourself before approaching the doctor. The first, and most often overlooked, is rest. People often forget to make time for themselves in the “rush-rush” atmosphere of today, overloading themselves with chores from work, family, and outside organizations. Take a time out. Reevaluate the stress in your life and sort your priorities. You will be amazed at what a great night’s sleep can do.

Anti-inflammatory drugs

Anti-inflammatory drugs, such as Advil or Motrin have proven to be extremely useful in the reduction of swelling and pain, and muscle relaxants are also highly recommended, used to numb the area. The most effective form of treatment for shoulder and back pain is actually heat. Used to ease pain, minimize swelling, and even reduce spasms, heat therapy is vital to the improvement and maintenance of the upper back muscles. The massaging powers of the whirlpool or a steaming bath are the most effective, but heating pads have proven to have a dramatic impact and it can be applied for 4-6 hours.

Ice and heat to relieve pain

Many doctors recommend rotating ice packs and heat treatment to relieve shoulder pain and back pain. If you apply it correctly, ice can have a profound impact on your shoulder. It can ease the pain and minimize the recovery period.

Firstly, don’t place ice directly on the skin. Place it in between a thin cloth, use an ice pack, or even grab peas from the freezer. Keep ice on for no longer than 30 minutes. It may feel good, but if left on for an extended period of time it will retighten your muscle, feeling great while decreasing your flexibility. The best time to apply is directly before bedtime to calm the muscle and ensure a peaceful night’s sleep. Ice is highly recommended for people suffering from inflammation and overexertion from things such as golf, car accidents, and baseball.
