Back Injuries

Back injuries plague millions of Americans. Not all doctors can agree on the causes of back injuries as they can come from many sources. Heredity plays a role in some back injuries while external sources play the major role.

Back injuries are different than spinal cord injuries in that they are muscular in nature. Pulls, strains and chronically aggravated back muscles can cause those affected to turn to heating pads, ointments, over-the-counter medications and traditional medical help.

Some industries are more prone to back injuries than others. Sports, construction, retail, factory work and nursing are a few of the jobs that have an inordinate amount of back injuries. Weight, fitness and flexibility also play a role in the proneness to injury.

Causes of Back Injuries

Some of the common causes of back injuries include: force, repetition, posture and stress. Force includes any kind of heavy lifting such as for requirements of the job. Repetition or repetitive lifting can cause or aggravate injuries such as those from repetitive stress syndrome. Posture can play a roll for those with office jobs as it is common to slump at one's desk and sit in positions that are strenuous to one's back. Psychological and emotional stress plays a role by raising tensions and tightening up muscles that can lead to back pain.

Avoiding Back Injuries

Back injuries to some extent can be avoided. While one cannot avoid his or her own heredity or some conditions at the workplace, a person can take some steps to modify their lifestyle to avoid some injuries. Fitness plays a great role in avoiding back injuries. Walking or running inside or outside the gym can help many. Leg lifts, and other back exercises can also strengthen back muscles and help to avoid future injuries. Light weight lifting at the gymnasium can also help.

Paying attention to posture can also help avoid back injuries. Poor posture stresses the back leading to muscle fatigue and injury. Ergonomically designed chairs, desks, hand rests and other equipment at work or home can help prevent muscle strains and injury.

Lifting properly will also help avoid injury. "Lift with your legs" is an often-heralded reminder for those with back problems to use the power of your legs in order take the strain off your back when lifting. Listening to your body will also help. If you feel a twinge of pain, then discontinue what you're doing and find a better position, method or even ask for help in lifting. Many injuries occur because someone is too proud to ask for help.

Reduce the general emotional and psychological stress in your life. Many back injuries are simply the acting out of our stressful lives. Many a massage therapist will tell you that you hold your stress in your back muscles. By reducing our life stressors (and getting a massage), we can avoid back injuries and live a more calm and satisfying life, as well.
