Body Pain: Why It Often Traces Back To Your Spine

Last updated 7 years ago

We all get the usual aches and pains after a long day of hard work. But did you know that a lot of the pain you experience is a result of complications with your spine?

Your nerves travel through your spinal chord and give feeling to each part of your body. That means they tell your body when it is in pain and when you need to go to the hospital!

By visiting a spine center, you can learn how when everything is working normally, the impulses travel through your spinal chord with no problems.

But if your spine is out of alignment, or if there is a problem with the muscles surrounding it, then the nerves get irritated. Should there be an interruption of the signal, your brain will not be able to determine what your body wants, leading to possible pain, inflammation, and other unpleasant feelings.

  • Back pain is a common result of spinal chord miscommunication.
    • Your erector spinae can become strained, causing you to feel pain in your back.
    • The large root nerves can become irritated. These are the nerves that travel to your arms and legs, also leading to possible inflammation and pain.
  • The space between the discs in your spine can also be another source of pain. Bones, ligaments, and joints can break, putting you at risk for even greater pain.

But you don’t have to face this body pain alone. There are many ways to relief yourself of the pain caused by problems with your spine.
