Back Muscle Pain
Back muscle pain affects as many as 90 percent of adults at some point, and as many as half will have pain either intermittently or chronically. The majority of back pain is a result of the body's reaction to stress and tension. As the body responds to stress, the blood flow to the muscle tissue is reduced. This, in turn, causes oxygen deprivation in the muscle, which leads to muscle pain.
It is not uncommon for individuals to begin experiencing back muscle pain without realizing they have been tense or stressed. It may simply be a result of sitting in an awkward position too long, such as using a computer without proper ergonomics. It can also be a result of bending and lifting rather than using the leg muscles appropriately.
The back is a complexity of soft tissues, bones, joints, discs, and nerves. Getting the correct diagnosis is key to obtaining relief from back muscle pain. Be sure to see your healthcare provider if your back muscle pain continues after conservative treatment. Keep in mind that the amount of pain does not always indicate the amount of damage to muscle tissue.
If your back muscle pain is caused by injured or stressed muscle tissue, your doctor may include the use of ultrasound therapy such as MendMeShop Therapeutic Ultrasound as a treatment option. Many chiropractors and physical therapists use ultrasound to increase blood flow to the muscle tissue to enhance the healing process.
