Did you know that more than 80 percent of Americans will experience some form of back pain in their lives?
As such, Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers is determined to help patients relieve themselves of this all-too-common, debilitating pain. Lower back pain can stem from so many different places that it is hard to blame one single event for the cause of the injury. In most cases, the injury occurs due to poor positioning, posture, and hinging movement over an extremely long period of time, and this improper movement can result in:
Bulging and herniated disks
Arthritis and disk degeneration disease
Strains and sprains
Still, lower back pain is not the only type of pain people experience. While not quite as common, middle back pain (or pain in the thoracic region) can cause serious problems if not treated correctly. This type of pain is often the result of either poor shoulder positioning or a pinched nerve and can cause one to experience a host of concerning symptoms, including:
Stiffness in the spine
Numbness in the arms, legs, chest, or stomach
Weakness in the extremities
Certain injuries associated with both low and middle back pain might require surgery to fix, but most times the pain can be treated non-surgically and will even fade away within 2-4 weeks. If you are currently experiencing a bout with bad back pain – or have previously and want to prevent another episode – please call an expert at Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers so we can help.
