Back



Low Back Pain


The lower back bears most of the body’s weight and can be easily injured when you lift, reach, or twist. Pain in the lower back may come from the spine, back muscles, nerves, or other structures in the surrounding region. It may also radiate from problems in different regions, like the mid and upper back, a hernia in the groin, or issues in the ovaries/testicles. It may not be one action that causes pain in the back. Doing many things improperly over time, like sitting, standing, and lifting, may lead your back to be injured when you do something simple like bending down to pick up a dropped pencil.

Symptoms:

- A variety of symptoms may be felt
- Tingling or burning sensation
- Dull aching or sharp pain
- Weakness in legs or feet
- Pain may come on gradually or abruptly








Osteoarthritis


OA is the most common joint disorder. The cartilage (or cushioning) between bone joints wears away in this condition, leading to pain and stiffness. As the condition progresses, the cartilage dissipates and bone grinds on bone. Bony spurs usually form around the joint. OA most commonly affects the hands, feet, spine, and the weight-bearing joints like the hips and knees. The two types of OA are primary and secondary. Primary occurs with no incidence of injury or obvious cause. Secondary is due to another condition. Secondary OA is most commonly caused by metabolic conditions (i.e., acromegaly), problems in anatomy (i.e., being “bow-legged”), injury, and inflammatory disorders (i.e., septic arthritis).

Symptoms:

- Grating of the joint with motion
- Joint pain in rainy weather
- Joint swelling
- Limited movement
- Morning stiffness







Cervical Spine:


When mother told us to sit up straight, she wasn't lying. Major muscles that elevate the shoulder insert into the top cervical vertebra. Major blood supply that comes from the heart and goes to the brain runs underneath these muscles. Poor posture can cause headaches and the inability to get the arm in a comfortable position. If you are reading this right now, SIT UP!! Notice if your neck is bent backward or if your nose is sticking out farther that your chin! If so, it is time to change. A quick self check is to keep a compact mirror by your computer station and check your postural.

Eventually not taking care of these muscles can lead to the inability o turn your head to check mirrors when driving. Your therapist at DASH will teach you techniques to alleviate pain! Also you will need to know techniques to relieve pain during activities like driving, sleeping, computer work and more!
