Weight Loss and Back Pain

Weight Loss and Back Pain

In society, we are surrounded by small, medium, and large bone structures. The structure of the muscles and bones play a part in how the body is framed as it matures. Weight factors are considered by bone structure also. For instance, a medium-bone woman at the height of 5”2 can weigh up to 135 without being overweight. A larger bone structured woman can weigh a few pounds more without tipping the scale.
Obesity however has taking over our country do to changes in feasting patterns, and the meals we eat. The damning changes include the FDA, which permits harmful additive food products, which the additives endorse, cravings. We see obesity in our future at higher scales than ever in our history. Why do you think 12 and 14 years old children are running around with large buttocks and breast? Ask FDA about the additives. The problem is these children take for granted the benefits, since down the road those buttocks and chest will balance with midriffs, thighs, and so on.
Now you can take those cans of beans off the shelves, sit around, and do nothing about your weight, however if you do not loose weight it can lead to serious back pain. Back pain is THE worst condition of all pain we can experience, yet the condition spreads out from a wide array of causes.
Back pain emerges from a chain of reactions, starting with the skeleton bones and moving to the skeletal muscles. Once the bones and muscles are targeted, the reactions carry on to collagen, calcium, phosphates, magnesium, joints, ligaments, tendons, cartilages, synovium, fibers, connective tissues, nerve roots, nerve endings, and gradually moves to the largest component within our body’s structure, known as the Central Nervous System. Now we have serious complications in the making.
The chain reactions affect our hormones, metabolic; weight bearing muscles and joints, and moves to deterioration. Now, the chain reaction may not occur in like order, yet in one fashion or the other each component of the body is affected over time.
Obesity increases the chain reaction. Back injuries alone can lead to obesity. For instance, if at one time you lift or catch a heavy object, person, etc, later down the road your back may fail, causing you enormous pain. The pain slows your actions, as well as causes emotional responses to produce symbolism messages, which can alter your life dramatically. You may feel helpless and continue life lying on your back, pitying your condition and failing to see how you can relieve your pain. Inactive muscles lead to obesity.
In view of the fact, we see that the muscles must have proper movement daily to avoid such problems. Exercise is the key that opens the door to healthy spines and closes the door to obesity. Stop fat in its track by working those muscles.
Emotions are powerful and tricky. You can stop the emotions from playing tricks on your mind by taking action now. If you have, a weight condition set a plan, and attempts to loose the measured weight at a scheduled interval. For instance, set your mind to loose five pounds by the end of the month. Once you loose the weight, you will notice a change in your spine, which includes reduced back pain. Set up a regimen of exercises that are suitable for you to achieve your goal.
Tip: Dance aerobics help you to burn fat quickly.
When you loose weight, it strengthens the muscles in your tummy and spinal column. The health advantage increases the chain reactions natural flow. Natural flow is achieved, since you reduce the amount of stress added to the joints and muscles. In view of the fact, you want to choose stretch exercises and workouts that do not overexert the joints, or muscles.

Threads of Bands and Back Pain

Threads of Bands and Back Pain

Inside the skeletal muscles rests some powerful elements, which include ligaments and tendons. The ligaments alone are muscular bands of stringy-like threads that produce collagen threads of muscle fiber. The fibers and threads of ligaments connect to the bones, which attach to the muscles. Collagen is essential, since it exists in the connective proteins found in muscle fibers, skin, tendons, bones, cartilages, connective tissues, etc, which collagen halts the flow of semi-solid proteins, which are transparent and rests beneath the cartilages and bones. (Gelatin) 
Ligaments join with the bones and joints, which in areas the fibers and bands of threaded-like elements will surround the joints. We get our strength from this action. Working with the ligaments are tough bands of connecting muscles that join with the bones. The inelastic bands and/or cords of tough fibers that join with the connective tissues and attach to the bones and muscles are known as tendons. Tendons can suffer tearing, which can also scar the muscles. Tendons provide us strength, power, resilience, and so forth.
Tendons join connective proteins, or collagen. The inelastic cords make up fiber proteins. Attached to tendons are joints and cartilages, which feed from the tendons and ligaments. Ligaments form a bond by connecting to the joints. The joints’ connective articulated junctions spread amid the bones. Within the connections, we get our ability to move, as well as our range of motion. (ROM) ROM is the level of joint is ability to move, which if range of motion is restricted; it causes swelling, inflammation, and pain. The back pain emerging from limited ROM can affect the joints, and the membrane known as synovium. This membrane is the joints’ liner and supplies antibodies. Antibodies are produced to ward off infections. The protein is manufactured via B cells, and acts through responses from the body of antigen. In short, if bacteria or virus is present the antibodies will kick in and ward the potential risks off. Now, if the antibodies do not kick in, it can lead to disorders of the synovium. We now have fluids that are not creating properly and are affecting the cartilages. Since the fluids are not responding, as it should, our body starts to avert the need to ward off infections.
Antigen is fluids that stimulate the production of antibodies. Now that we have problems emerging from ROM, etc, we can see that it moves to affect the cartilages. The problems outlined in this article not only cause back pain, but can also cause arthritic symptoms. Arthritic symptoms also cause back pain. Now that Range of Motion is interrupted, the smooth planes of the cartilages start to deteriorate. When deterioration sets up the cartilages will restrict range of motion. Deterioration also causes the cartilages to resist when weight-bearing joints are attempting to act. The cartilages are also sturdy elasticity tissues that form skeletal muscles and bones during the growth cycle. If the cartilages are disturbed, it can cause interruptions of the bursa. Bursa once more is a sac filled with fluid. The fluid in bursa assists the joints, bones, cartilages, synovium, etc, by reducing friction and minimizing risks. Bursa disorders cause swelling, and inflammation.

When bursa conditions are present, the pain will sometimes start at the lower back, and may continue to other areas. Symptoms, such as pain, fatigue, numbness, limited mobility, joint stiffness, fevers, swelling, and so on often emerge from bursa conditions.
In worst conditions muscle spasms, poor posture, skeletal deformity, edema, inflammation, and so on may arise.
Once the spinal canal, columns, etc are interrupted additional conditions follow that extend back pain to fractures.

The Outline of the Spine Defining Back Pain

The Outline of the Spine Defining Back Pain

Outline of the spine:
I believe that outlining the spine can help you see the elements that make up our person, as well as give us the ability to perform daily. The spine at the top includes two vertebras and separates by the cervical vertebrae. Between the joining vertebrae are disks and the associating nerve roots. Down toward the center back is the thoracic vertebrae, which below it is the body of the spine. Joining these elements below is the neuroformen, which is slightly higher than the disk that separates the two spines. Below the disk are the nerve roots and to the other side are the lumbar vertebrae. Below the nerve roots is the facet joints and almost adjacent is the pelvis. Below the joints is the sacrum, which adjacent is the sacroiliac joint. The coccyx sits at the bottom of the second vertebrae and completes the spinal column.
Having an outline of the spine can help one appreciate how the back is structured and to see areas that could lead to back pain.
As we look at the outline, it can help us to appreciate that the spine makes up elements that help us to move, bend, slope, and twist, which each movement can cause back injuries.
Within the structure of the spine, we have separate bones. The total count is “34,” which these bones connect with the spinal unit, facet joints, vertebral body, disks, spinal unit, and the facet joints at the lower section.
The coccyx alone makes up the fuse bones, which is around five or less. The bones rest at the base of the spine. The fuse bones are the tailbone in basic language and disable us, since the limb does not poise the spine. Rather the spine is our balance mechanism. Now, when we loose poise, it could cause falls.
The coccyx is at risk, since it could break and lead to coccygodynia. Coccygodynia is a back condition that causes serious pain.
How the coccyx is broke?
The coccyx can be broke when a car accident occurs. In addition, trauma impacts can break the coccyx, as well as falling backwards.
How can I tell if I have coccygodynia?
A stabbing pain often occurs in the back, which sometimes the pain is sharp. This is a clear indication that potential damage has occurred to the coccyx. If you have difficulty sitting, you may have coccygodynia also. If sitting is difficult, likely you will feel pressure at the right side. Sometimes bowel movement is difficult as well.
What should I do if these symptoms arise?
Ask your doctor to test you, using x-rays. If the x-ray is negative however, you may have only bruised your coccyx.
Additional fused bones climb the steps up the spine, making up another five bones. The sacrum meets in this area, which is a bone as well. The sacrum is a triangular-like bone at the lower back and joins with the hipbone on either side, forming the pelvis. The sacrum connects to the only area of the back limbs at the lower region. At the outer area of the pelvis rests the iliac bones. The larger bones connect to the joints known as sacroiliac. The joints are part of the hip ilium bones and the joints between the sacrum and the ilium.
The joints at this area shape similar to a horses saddle and interfaces the pelvis sides flanking between the pelvis and sacrum. Why are we discussing this area, since it really does not make up the spine? Because, this region is the single common section of the connective parts to the spine, where the lower back pain starts due to asymmetric, and deformity.

The Intermediary Cylindrical Girdle and Back Pain

The Intermediary Cylindrical Girdle and Back Pain

How the cylindrical girdle affects sacroiliac
The intermediary cylindrical girdle is the go-between for the sacroiliac. Since the sacroiliac does not have support, yet it permits a variety of turns and twists, it needs an intermediary to hold it up. The sacroiliac connects with the ilium and sacrum at the upper area of the hipbone or ilium and the joints between the ilium and sacrum. Now, if this girdle is interrupted it can cause a disease known as muscular dystrophy. The disease is crippling. MD is characterized by plodding waste of the skeletal muscles.
The Cylindrical girdle is also known as the pectoral girdle, and/or the shoulder girdle, which is a scheme of bones that support, paired frontal limbs, such as forelegs, arms, or fins. The bones also surround the stomach and gives support to the sacroiliac joints. The Cylindrical girdle helps us to raise the posture, or body keeping it erect while standing.
The cylindrical girdle connects to 12 areas of the back, i.e. 12 spinal columns. Attached to the 12 columns are the thoracic vertebrae. These ribs hold breathing space, leaving a gap within the body to promote breathing through a vacuum-like funnel that inflates into the respiratory organs in the vertebrae’s, or lungs.
The lungs is an air-breathing vertebrae that pairs spongy organs connected to the respiratory and sets within the rib cage, transferring oxygen into the bloodstreams and removing carbon dioxide as it travels. The thoracic vertebrae are a protective shield for the vital organs, as well as the backbone. In addition, the thoracic shields the lungs, liver, and heart.
The thoracic bones is connected to the channel ribs
At the spine is an elongated line of bones that is supported by the ribs. The thoracic ribs levers the bones. Along the channel are several ribs, which erect and extend to the joining front spine. This makes up nine ribs that lack mobility, yet another three ribs below these babies protects the nine and makes room for additional movement. Now we have potential back pain for real, since those joints are subject to wear and tear. Now between all of these medical terms, rest the joints, which often degenerate causing diseases, such as osteoarthritis due to frequent twisting, turning, etc. 
We can discuss a brief background of osteoarthritis to help you see where it leads. First, osteoarthritis is a form of arthritis that affects the back, since joints and cartilages gradually lose strength. The disease often hits middle-aged people, yet it could start early. Read the details above to learn why.
In addition, these joints could endure damage from injuries, vehicle accidents, brutal attacks, and so forth.
The joints mentioned enable us to turn side to side and in various directions, which is what causes the wear and tear.
The joints outlined also connect to the cervical spinal column. The cervical spinal column is the neck or cervix that relates or belongs to any sections of the body that bear a resemblance to the d├ęcolletage. The cervix rests at the d├ęcolletage, rather the neck of the womb. It consists of a narrow passage that leads to the vagina. The cervical spinal column has around seven spinal columns. Spines start to shrink forming smaller forms as they reach or near the cranium. Attached are near level joints that become wider and slightly incline in the direction of the higher section and to the facade region of the body.
The cervix can move in many directions. In addition, the cervical spine connects with the higher region of the cranium, thus providing support. These areas are of concern, since people often use their head to balance, which is what causes headaches to occur. Once the headaches start, one will often experience pain at the cervical and continues onto the lower region of the back. 

The Diagnosis behind Back Pain Continue

The Diagnosis behind Back Pain Continue

Brief Description:
The spine is made up of muscles, bones, and nerves... The spine is held together by disks, connective tissues, tendons, and ligaments. The elements combine to allow us to stand, yet tension is applied.
The lower back makes up the larger structure of bones and joints with the joints at the hips. Hip joints connect to the pelvis, joining with the elements listed above and with the vertebral column and finally connect to the sacrum. Larger bones join at the legs, which is where we get our support and strength to hold up the vertical column.
The bones thicken at the opposite side of the vertebral column, or spinal cord and continue up to the neck. Thicker joints start at this area and continue to join with thicker bones, which start to shrink and thin at the joints.
The larger group of bones is at the lower area and joins with the spine. At the small baseline and near the top structure these bones join and cause stress to the back. The legs are capable of moving, which additional stress is applied. The stress continues to the lumbar spinal disk. This disk is affected by the stress as well. To give you an example, if you were to pick up a 2000-pound object, you would have the same amount of stress applied if you would have sit down on the couch.
At the top region of the back, we have muscles as well, which are shorter and helps us to maneuver the arms, as well as the cranium. Now, if you consider the elements spoken of in this article, you may wonder how it can cause back pain. The fact, when pulling up a tight pair of khakis, or trousers it can generate unusual tension. The tension affects the lower and upper back, thus causing pain to arise. The reason behind this is that the higher muscles cannot counterweigh for the pressure group taking place at the lower region.
Back pain can emerge from the advantage we receive from the spinal column as well, such as the control over the body. The spine has a prime focus and that is to give us such control or advantage to stand, walk, run, and sit and so on. Due to this control we have however, if we were to pick up 20 pounds, it would be the same as applying around 200 pounds on the bones, muscles, and the spine.
Now, if you think about what I just said, you would see that as people we often take the spine for granted, yet the granted we take is present in the tendons, muscles, ligaments, etc, and because the stress we apply is greater than the spine can handle, injuries occur.
Sure, we all have to stand, sit, walk, move, and perform daily activities, yet as we do this we are applying stress to the spine, more so than we realize. In short, picking up a single cup of coffee is more weight than you realize.  
When one considers the spine, they must also consider weight, depth and the distance end to end. Since the spine is made up of small and large bones, as well as thin and thick bones and joints, the vertebras in all areas exert its own degree of force and set limits on the lower and upper back. . As you can see, the pressure we apply daily to the spine gradually builds and causes lower and upper back pain. We still must consider inappropriate bending however, since twice; the weight is applied when one lifts heavy objects and fails to bend properly.

Taking Action to Reduce Back Pain

Taking Action to Reduce Back Pain

The song, “My ankle bone is connected to my knee bone,’ comes to mind each time I write articles on back pain. Now I know why. Each bone within the structures of the skeletal muscles plays a vital part in our health. If any of these bones, muscles, tendons, etc are disturbed it can lead to serious back problems. Back problems include slipped herniated disks, broken back, fractures, and so on. Each condition is caused from a string of actions, activities, incorrect movement, overexertion, etc, which exceptions include disease.
Back pain is complex, since various aspects of the human makeup creates such pain. For instance, connective tissues can lead to serious back pain, quicker than bursa bruising. The baffling mechanisms behind back pain has lead scores of doctors off shore, since many struggle to see that the central nervous system alongside the spinal columns play a vital part in back pain creation.
According to statistics over a million people on a daily ricketier scale suffers either minor or severe back pain. About ½ or more of these people could have prevented back pain, and found relief without seeking medical treatment. The other half of this unstable, million scale may endure back pain for their course of their life, since they fail to use practicality in resolving the problem.
In some cases, such as a 1/3 of the ricketier scale of people, surgery is performed to correct the problems. Surgery often leads to major complications, including severe back pain. Go figure, yet surgical procedures are unhealthy and its history has proven this notion. Even if you damage a shoulder ligament or tendon, you can take measures to avert surgery and relieve your pain.
Did you know that loosing weight could reduce back pain? Obesity is spreading throughout the world and in every corner, thus adding pressure to the muscles, which lead to back pain. “Oh my feet are killing me,’ which is commonly heard. What this person fails to realize is that he/she may be overweight, wearing the wrong shoes, and overexerting the bearing joints. We can stop this pain in its track by wearing correct shoes, loosing weight, and remove excessive weight from the weight-bearing joints and muscles. The problem is more and more people are gaining weight, since our FDA has allowed additives in to meats, which promote cravings. Practicality tells us that organics is the way to stop FDA and meat manufacturers in their tracks, as well as stopping obesity to a large grade.
In view of the fact, you can graduate my dear “Sir Watson,” from elementary and move up to college.
How to relieve pain from slipped herniated disks?
You can choose the right way or the wrong way to relieve herniated disk damage. The wrong way can include alcoholism and drugs, which lead to bigger problems.
Ultimately, you can ignore the problem, continue adding weight and pressure to the area, and finally spend the rest of your life, lying down. On the other hand, you can learn how to lean and bend correctly, curl to relieve pain, loose weight (If applicable), wear correct fitting shoes, and so forth.
Did you know that curling up in a proper fetal position can reduce pain and agony at the back caused from herniated slipped disks? Well, get on your side and curl those knees up to your chest so you can find out for yourself. When you finish, let me know how you feel. When curling into a fetal position, place a cushion or pillow amid your knees and avoid folding tightly. Do not elevate the hips.

Synovial Joints and Back Pain

Synovial Joints and Back Pain

The synovial joints are made up of capsule ligaments, tendon sheath that is the liner of synovium, tendons, cartilages, and synovium. Fluids pass through these joints. The synovial joints connect with the bones, which structured scaffolds of the body joins with additional bones. The joints produce fluids, which lubricates them. The fluids contain itself within the capsules, which promote movement. Movement is limited by bone structures. Flexible sectors can also limit movement, as well as connective tissues and inelastic mechanisms.
When the synovial joints are interrupted, it affects the ligaments. The ligaments will limit movement of abnormal joints. Ligaments induce movement amid “two bones” that make it easy for a collection of muscles to contract, expand, and stimulate the nerves. The nerves expand to CNS. (Central Nervous System)
Bones attach to the muscles via tendons. Tendons are thin and stronger than the muscles, which the tendons permit the muscles to converge by pulling it through small openings. Bursa acts a servant to the joints and muscles, since it precludes friction from traveling amid the “two” progressing exteriors. Bursa is a sac filled with fluids, which if bursa rubs against another joint it causes inflammation. Bursitis can set in if rubbing causes inflammation and the sac fills with fluid. Bursitis usually targets the elbows and shoulder, yet the pain extends to the back. When the bursa fails, it can cause swelling, pain, fevers, and numbness, stiffness of the joints, fatigue, and limited mobility.
The human skeleton is made up of “206” bones. Inside the skeleton system is the cranium, jaw, collar bone (Clavicle), shoulder blade (Scapula), sternum, (breast bone) ribs, humerus, spine, radius, ulna, pelvis, carpals, (wrist bones) metacarpals, (palm bones) phalanges, finger bones, femur (Thigh bones), patella (knee cap), tibia (Shin bone), fibula, tarsals (ankle bone), metatarsals (Foot bone), and phalanges. (Toe bones)  
When the skeleton structure is interrupted, it can cause back pain. Most cases of back pain are treated with bed rest, foot elevation, ice packs, compression, and so on. Many diseases can cause back pain, which the cause is found in disruptive blood vessels, soft tissues, etc. The problem can lead to excessive bleeding, which slows the healing process.
R.I.C.E
R.I.C.E is a rule of structure one should keep in mind when treating back pain at home. If you have tension in the muscles, you can use this structure to reduce back pain. Rest is essential if you have tension in the muscles. Rest includes putting your feet up and relaxing the spinal column. Ice packs are used to relieve pain as well. You can wrap ice in a damp, soft cloth and apply it to the area. Keep the pack on the area up to fifteen minutes. You can place an ice pack on the injured region every hour. If you have injured your knee, then elevate the leg before applying your ice pack.
Rest and Ice packs starts R.I.C.E, which continues to compression. Compression reduces looseness of the muscles.
In addition, if blood escapes into injured blood vessels, you can compress the area to apply pressure. Avoid applying pressure surpassing the volume, which the blood from the arterial system needs room to flow smoothly.
Elevation involves keeping the leg a distance from the floor. You can elevate the legs to reduce lower back pain. Lie flat on the back and elevate the leg in a supporting chair. You can also place a pillow between the knees to reduce back pain.
Keep R.I.C.E. in mind when you have tension on the back, or have sustained an injury. However, if you injured your back or joints seek medical help immediately.
