1. What are common causes of back pain?
Back pain is one of the most common ailments; approximately 80% of the adult population will develop a significant episode of back pain sometime during their life. Unlike most of them, 10% to 20% will develop into significant chronic and/or recurrent episodes of back pain. Wear and tear conditions, such as degenerative arthritis and degenerative disc disease, are some of the most common causes. Low back joint restrictions and/or sacroiliac joint restrictions are also a common cause of acute low back pain. Muscle pulls and tears may also cause low back pain, but usually, the symptoms of muscular causes are short-lived. Weak muscles, poor flexibility, and poor posture all aggravate underlying conditions and worsen symptoms. Uncommon causes of pain include infection, cancer, fractures, aneurysms, and/or internal organ problems.
2. Does smoking cause spine problems?
Yes. Blood vessels become smaller due to smoking as it restricts the flow of blood and oxygen and nutrients to the tissues which affect the discs. Smokers go through more pain due to increased use of narcotics and other pain controlling substances. Surgery success rate is much lower in smokers. Smoking causes not only painful spine problems but also heart disease, lung disease, vascular disease, and cancer etc.
3.What is the type of spine surgeries?
Tissues are removed which compress the nerves in the back of the body. During the surgery process, the surgeons remove parts of the bone that constricts the nerves in the spinal column. As the stability of the spine is sometimes affected, a procedure called spinal fusion is also done.
This of the most widely recommended type of spine surgery for spinal conditions caused by spondylolisthesis and stenosis. The surgery involves removing parts of the backbone, to relieve pressure on the spinal nerves. The surgery is usually performed in combination with spine fusion surgery when instability of spine is suspected.
Spinal disc replacement
The spinal disc is replaced by an artificial disc which is fixed between the vertebrae. This surgery permits continued spine mobility and can be done without spine fusion.
This procedure involves joining two vertebrae together to increase spine stability. This results in restricted movements and limits stretching of nerves.
It is a type of spine surgery that is used to treat the herniated disc. In a discectomy, all or part of the disc is removed.
