All you need to know:
Spinal problems are divided into two categories: wear and tear conditions & acute injuries. As the spine is so centrally connected to all other parts of the body, a problem with the spine can cause a variety of symptoms and affect a patient's ability to function on various levels.
Spinal problems and diseases can occur for a variety of reasons. It is likely that the cause of back pain in some sports is the constant muscle tension of the athlete, and the wrong movement during training․ In other cases, it is very likely that spinal problems occur for such simple reasons as sleeping in a bad position, sitting for a long time in the same position at work, or repetitive performing movements. And Spinal traumas can be caused by falling and twisting incidents, etc.
Below you can see several ways in which Spinal problems can occur:
- Irritation of the large nerve roots that go to the feet and hands
- Compression of the small nerves that exit the vertebrae
- The tension of the large muscles of the back
- Injury to the bones or ligaments in or around the spine.
So, if your reality is characterized by any of the above, you should be more attentive, and if you already notice that you have back or neck pain, etc., then you should consult a doctor.
