Age, fitness and other factors increase risks of back pain
Westood, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/07/2018 -- At some point in their lives, eight out of every 10 adults suffer from lower back pain. It's the major cause of job-related disabilities and one of the main reasons workers use sick days.
No one understands the complexities of the lower back better than the world-class team of specialists at Kayal Pain & Spine Center. These board-certified experts provide the finest pain management care for patients in Bergen County and beyond.
There are three types of back pain:
Acute: Typically lasts just a couple of days or a couple of weeks
Subacute: Lasts four to 12 weeks
Chronic: Lasts 12 weeks or longer
There are a number of factors that place someone at greater risk for lower back pain. These include: age (older people are more vulnerable), weight gain (obesity and a major weight gain over a short period of time), genetics, fitness level, occupation (jobs that involve heavy lifting, pushing and pulling and jobs that involve little or no physical activity) and mental health. These days, more and more children are at greater risk for lower back pain due to heavy backpacks. The Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons recommends that backpacks should not exceed 15 to 20 percent of a child's weight.
Mild back pain can usually be resolved with simple steps and treatments such as rest, massage, weight loss, exercise, ointments and medications. However, when back pain persists and is disabling, it's time to schedule an appointment at Kayal Pain & Spine Center.
