How do you know if what you’re experiencing is migraine pain?
Dr. Timothy Dembowski, the founder of Atlanta Medical Clinic, begins by drawing a parallel with back pain: Someone might feel a low-back twinge after a Saturday filled with yard work – or suffer a couple of days of agony for no apparent reason.
Low back pain is one of the most common types of chronic pain, and is the largest cause of disability among those under 45 worldwide. Since back pain affects every facet of life, it comes as no surprise that more than half of people with back pain regularly report a significant problem with sleep, according to the European Spine Journal. What’s the problem with a lack of shut-eye, and how can you find rest and reduce back pain when sleeping?
Unless chronic neck pain is caused by an injury, the chances are that it is caused by poor posture. Because of the neck’s placement on the body, neck strain can come from the curvature of the spine below, and/or the tilt of the head above. Poor posture not only causes neck pain, but it can also lead to joint degeneration in the spine.
Annually, millions of people are affected by an incredibly painful and sometimes debilitating set of neurological symptoms known as sciatica. Considered lower-back-pain’s ugly step-sister, sciatica typically appears after damage, injury, or trauma to the lower spine. It results in radiating pain, numbness, tingling, burning, or weakness through the buttocks and hip and into either leg.
