Back Pain

Back pain is an unfortunately common condition with wide-ranging factors and possible root causes. This can range from the pain that is annoying but manageable to pain that is debilitating and disabling. 

There are a wide variety of conditions that can contribute to and cause back pain, such as Degenerative Disc Disease, Sciatica, Herniated Discs, and Annular Tears. 

These conditions affect the spine, which is made up of three sections:

  • Cervical Spine (neck)
  • Thoracic Spine (upper back)
  • Lumbar Spine (lower back)

Most of these issues develop in the lower back. The lower back typically takes on the most stress and significant load in everyday movement, lifting, sitting, and more.

Symptoms of Back Pain

Because such a wide range of conditions can cause back pain, symptoms of these conditions are wide-ranging as well. The following are some of the most typical symptoms:

  • Aching muscles
  • Shooting, burning, or stabbing sensation felt around the affected area of the back
  • Pain that radiates down the leg, typically only affecting one leg
  • Pain that worsens when bending, twisting, lifting, standing, or walking
  • Muscle tightness and spasms

It is recommended that patients reach out to their healthcare provider if their pain:

  • Has lasted longer than a few weeks
  • It is severe and does not improve with conservative care
  • Radiates down one or both legs, especially if it is felt below the knee and into the foot
  • This leads to weakness, numbness, or tingling in one or both legs

Patients who experience new bowel or bladder problems, back pain accompanied by a fever, or pain following a fall, accident, or another injury should seek immediate care.

Possible Causes

Causes of back pain include:

  • Muscle or ligament strain
  • Bulging or ruptured disc
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Herniated disc
  • Sciatica
  • Annular tear
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Neoplasm

A Common Root Cause of Back Conditions

Most adults over the age of 18 have developed annular tears, or will develop annular tears. These tears develop in almost everyone because they’re a natural part of our aging process. Many people with annular tears never feel any symptoms or pain. However, many other people will experience severe and debilitating pain as a result of these tears.  They often lead to many other conditions such as herniated discs, thinning discs, bulging discs, sciatica and degenerative discs, and these issues all lead to chronic low back pain. 

If someone receives treatment that does not address the leaky disc, the inflammation caused by the leak may persist after the treatment and the pain may not be relieved. 

The most common treatments for chronic low back pain, including Physical Therapy, Medication, Spinal Manipulation, Spinal Laminectomy, and Spinal Fusion, do not address the leaking disc.

 But there is another option that is designed to address annular tears and is known to provide long-lasting pain relief: the Discseel Procedure.

 The Discseel Procedure is a non-surgical, minimally invasive spine procedure that uses an orthobiologic injection to seal annular tears and relieve back and neck pain. This is the only procedure that has been designed to address annular tears and stop the leaking of the nucleus pulposus.

Whether your pain is caused by herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, or chronic lower back pain, the Discseel Procedure may be able to help you.  Contact us for a no-obligation consultation to find out if you’re a candidate for this revolutionary procedure!
