Types of back pain:-
In medical science there are two types of back pain:-
  • Nociceptive pain: - It is produced by "nociceptor" sensory fibers after an injury to a muscle, bone, joint and in skin. Common example of this kind of back pain is, back pain after a car accident, back pain after a surgery,
  • Neuropathy or neuropathic pain:- If there is any kind of damage in nerve tissue, then this kind of back pain raised. Sciatica, pain that travels from the spine down the arm is the common example of this kind of pain.
These both types of back pain are classified in lower back, middle back pain and simple back pain. Sudden onset low back pain is considered "simple low back pain". Simple back pain is raised because of over-stretch in a ligament or muscle.

Exercise to reduce pain:-
There are many treatments for removing back pain like exercise, yoga etc... exercise is a natural way to reduce back pain, but we should do it in right manner and for right time. Here, I am describing some exercise to reduce pain:-
  • - Lie on your back and then move ankles up and down for 10 times.
  • - Lie on your back and slowly bend and straighten knee. Repeat it for 10 times.
  • - Stand with weight even on both feet and raise heels up and down for 10 times.

Best treatment for Back pain:-
As we discussed above right exercises and yoga are good treatment, but sometime we can't get permanent relief from back pain with exercise. But physiotherapist treatment is the best way to reduce back pain. In physiotherapy, some special exercises are used for reducing back pain. Apart from exercise, some manual techniques are also applied. Some exercise is performed by machines, but it is very necessary to do them in right manner and for 10 to 30 minutes. Otherwise, it can create some major problems. So it is important to take proper advice and treatment. Do consult with the best physiotherapist like dynamic physiotherapist- physio treatment in Dublin. I also took help from physiotherapist when I got lower back pain. Physiotherapy treatment is the best for all kinds of pain like pain in shoulder, pain in back and pain in knee.
