Back Pain Conditions That Mainly Affect Working Women

Causes of Back Pain

Let's discuss the causes of back pain:

The combination of demanding targets with long working hours with the vigorous demands of household chores takes a toll on woman's health. Women generally have a habit of ignoring their own health or their health issues. So, when a symptom like back pain is ignored for a long time then it is converted to chronic back pain.

Also, it is a fact that women of the age group 35 years and above are subject to the early degenerative changes. These degenerative changes lead to pain as the bones get weak and brittle. The back pain could be because of the strained muscles or the weak bones.

The question here is how do we understand that our bones are brittle? We should actually make an effort of going in for regular health checkup with a bone densitometry test to find out about our bone status.

Chronic Pain Prevention

Let us now understand the simple ways to prevent of chronic pain:

  • Exercise/Staying active
  • Eat right
  • Maintain a proper posture
  • Reduce stress
  • Go for a regular preventive health checkup

Pain Management

Chronic back pain treatment can be classified into 2 categories such as Non-invasive and Invasive methods.

Patients generally prefer the Non-invasive pain management which includes the following:

  • Pain medications
  • Exercise
  • Hot and cold packs
  • Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)

All these chronic back pain symptoms are preventable. However, with the inherent trait of ignorance about their own health associated with the busy lifestyle, women tend to ignore the problem till it gets worse.
