Lower Back Pain Arthritis Treatment
Few realize how vital a healthy back is until it’s too late. When something goes wrong with your back—whether the pain is localized to the upper, central, or lower region—it is highly advisable to get it taken care of quickly and effectively.
As we age, there are even more situations in which our backs can be dangerously affected. One such debilitating condition is arthritis of the back.
What is Arthritis?
Arthritis is inflammation of one or more joints, causing pain and stiffness that typically worsens with age. The most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Each type of arthritis occurs for various reasons, including wear and tear, underlying diseases, and infections. For some, it’s a minor annoyance, but it constitutes an immensely destructive, life-altering affliction for many others. It is a very common affliction, with millions of people in the United States alone suffering from it.
What Causes Arthritis?
As previously mentioned, arthritis can be caused by several factors, including—but not limited to—the following:
You can experience arthritis in many areas of the body. Commonly misunderstood to only impact one’s fingers or knees, in reality, it can also manifest in areas like the back. Spinal arthritis isn’t a type of arthritis—rather, it is a symptom of several types of arthritis manifesting simultaneously in the spine.
The most common type of arthritis in the back is osteoarthritis. If you or someone you know is experiencing pain in the back, they might be dealing with spinal arthritis. Examples of such pain include:
-Sharp or Intermittent pangs
-Stiffness, tenderness, and/or swelling
-Decreased range of motion
-Difficulty walkingMuscle pain
You don’t have to live with this kind of pain permanently. There is effective lower back pain arthritis treatment available.
