Types of Back Pain

There are many different types of back pain, with different causes. Regaining full movement and to be free of pain are of paramount importance.


Your spine is the foundation of your body. It is made of solid blocks of bone known as vertebra, joined together by softer cartilage or discs which act as shock absorbers and maintain flexibility. Your back is reinforced by strong ligaments, surrounded by powerful muscles for support. It is, protecting your body itself, surprisingly difficult to damage your spine.


As we get older, wear and tear may contribute to back pain. The shock-absorbing pads or discs between the bones of the back can narrow with age and this can cause stiffness, pain and make it difficult to move. The most commonly known names for these conditions are terms such as sciatica and radiculopathy. Back pain can include pain in the upper, mid or lower back. It has been known to cause other conditions, in the shoulders and legs for example and this is called referred pain. Several types of muscular pain in the back region, be it in the upper back, mid back or low back can also be referred to as back pain. This includes pain that radiates from the ribs or between the shoulder blades which can be most uncomfortable.
