Is Back Pain Turning You Into a Zombie?

 

Walking stiffly? Moving slowly and deliberately? Moaning? These might be acceptable behaviors if you are brushing up on your Zombie impression for an upcoming Halloween party, but if you find yourself walking and moving and feeling like one of the walking dead it may be a cause of back pain and medications.

Back pain can impact your life 24/7, all year round. If you're one of the unlucky ones who is suffering with back pain, you are not alone. According to the American Chiropractic Association, 31 million Americans experience low back pain at any given time throughout the year. Also,back pain is the leading cause of disability worldwide.  According to the Global Burden of Disease, most cases of back pain are mechanical; i.e., they are not caused by serious medical conditions or diseases.

What Causes Back Pain?

Because the back is a complex structure of bones, joints and muscles, back pain can be caused by a myriad of conditions. Back pain can be caused by a sport or automobile accident injury, stress, weight gain, aging, or diseases of the internal organs (such as kidneys). Problems with the vertebral discs -- the soft tissue pads that separate and protect the individual bones of the spine -- is one of the most common causes of back pain.
