Back Pain Treatment Sheffield
Have you been suffering with back pain on and off for years? Maybe you’re sick of having to adapt your lifestyle in case your back goes or you’re feeling like you have tried everything and nothing’s worked!
According to the Office for National Statistics, almost 31 million work days were lost in the UK in 2016 due to musculoskeletal problems including back pain. The costs attributable to low back pain in the UK are estimated at £12.3bn a year, with £1.6bn spent on treatment.
What are the causes of back pain?
The back is a complex area of ligaments, muscles, bones, fascia, nerves and is continuously working hard to support the rest of the body.
Back pain can have various triggers, including poor posture, incorrect lifting, weak muscles around the spine, reduced levels of exercise, obesity and stress. Back pain can also be caused by more serious conditions, but this is very rare.
Back pain that is not caused by a specific condition like Ankylosing Spondylitis or Disc problems is classed as ‘Non Specific Back Pain’. It is non specific because it’s caused by structures in the back rather than a serious problem. Non Specific Back Pain can cause a dull ache, sharp pain, stiffness, muscular spasm, sharp shooting pains and is nothing to worry about (in fact worrying can make it worse!).
