Types Of Back Pain

Back pain comes in different shapes and sizes. You can have severe back problems without a clear discernible cause...

Or you can have an abnormality in your back without any pain resulting from it.

So there are different types of back pain and associated back conditions or diseases. If you know which particular type of back pain is bothering you, you have taken the first step to solving your problems...

That is why we try to give you as much insight as possible. You will find info on the most important types of back pain and back conditions, like lower back pain, herniated discs or sciatica. By the way, these types of back pain all have acute and chronic versions.

But you will also find information about spondylolisthesis (a slipped / shifted vertebra in the back), as well as about scoliosis, kyphosis, lordosis and some more.

But maybe you are thinking: what good is knowing all that to me?...

...well, maybe more than you think. Because it will help you understand what goes on inside your body. And as soon as you understand what is going on inside your body that caused your troubles, it gets lots easier to think about what to do to solve your back troubles.

What's the point of undergoing surgery (if your doctors recommend this) when the problem is something completely different?

It is therefore important that you first find out what kind of back pain is troubling you.
