Lower back issues are common for Americans. According to the National Institutes of Health, more than 80 percent of adult Americans will have some type of back pain in their lifetime. Most people will only experience mild to moderate pain. However, there may be some factors that cause you extreme lower back pain if you live in Union, New Jersey. Fortunately, you can find a physical therapy team to help you that’s right here in town.
Our team at Arrow Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation has been helping those in and around Union find the treatments they need for years. In the time we’ve been in business, we’ve learned a thing or two about treating each patient as an individual.
In our experience, every patient experiences injuries and medical conditions differently. This means trying to shove people into one-size-fits-all therapy plans just won’t work. For this reason, our team will always create a personalized therapy plan for our patients. We’ll also work with you through every step of your therapy process to ensure your plan is working effectively. One issue such plans from our Union clinic allow us to treat is extreme lower back pain.
Two factors that can cause extreme lower back pain in Union
Extreme back pain is a serious health concern in Union, and it can significantly interfere with your life. Luckily, most back issues typically result in low or moderate levels of pain. However, there are certain factors that may lead to higher levels of pain.
One factor that can lead to greater levels of back pain is a car accident. Car accidents are one of the most common ways people are injured in the U.S. These accidents cause so many injuries because of the tremendous forces they place on the body. When these forces act on your body, many types of back injuries can result. For instance, you may get torn back muscles from a car accident. You could also suffer a herniated disc or vertebral fracture, and any of these injuries can cause a high level of pain.
Sports injuries are a second factor that can lead to high levels of back pain. The back is vital to your ability to play most sports. However, it’s also one of the most commonly injured body structures among sports players. For example, contact sports like football and rugby can knock vertebrae out of alignment. This can result in nerve pinching that may lead to intense pain in your back. Like car accidents, sports can also cause herniated discs and muscle injuries that bring acute back pain.
