Back-Chest Pains

Studies show that approximately one out of every 5 people has a back pain problem throughout their life. Back pain, which is mostly caused by muscle-related problems, can also be a harbinger of more serious diseases. Sedentary life, injuries, fibromyalgia, deformities such as hernia in the back spine, osteoporosis, scoliosis, tumors, degenerative diseases or reflected pain cause this.

The majority of back pain is due to the so-called sedentary lifestyle, regular sports and exercise not being a part of our lives. Poor posture, sitting for a long time at a desk/computer, lack of condition and weakness of the back muscles can cause pain.

Sports injuries, traffic accidents and similar injuries are the second most common cause of back pain. Pain can occur due to a wide range of injuries, from simple injuries such as crushing and stretching of the muscles to various fractures.

Fibromyalgia is a common disease that develops due to the living conditions of today’s societies, which can spread to the shoulder blades and shoulders and cause widespread body pain. The cause is not known for certain.

Herniated discs, which are the pads between the vertebrae, are more common in the neck and waist. Less frequently, a hernia may also occur in the back region.

Due to the decrease in mineral density in the bones, they become more easily broken. This fracture most often occurs in the vertebrae. These compression fractures in the vertebrae can cause back pain. Although it can be seen in both sexes, it is more common in women.

It is a group of diseases that originate from the connective tissues around the bones and joints and manifest themselves with bone-muscle-joint pain. Ankylosing spondylitis and some similar rheumatic diseases can also affect the spine and cause back pain.

Scoliosis of unknown cause is generally not a cause of pain. Moderate curvatures that do not require surgery may cause back pain with the addition of joint degeneration as age progresses.

Benign and malignant tumors originating from the bone or nerve structures of the spine can cause back pain, as well as breast, lung, prostate, etc. tumors by spreading to the spine and causing back pain. It is an important feature that it appears as night pain and does not go away with rest. It may also be accompanied by symptoms such as fever, weight loss, and malaise.

With age, disorders and calcifications occur in the joints and discs between the vertebrae. Discs may lose their liquid content and form cambering. These changes can cause back pain. These changes in joints, bones and discs can narrow the space available for the spinal cord, causing narrow canal and causing nerve pain.

Back pain can also occur due to ‘reflected pains’ originating from organs in various parts of the body, apart from the muscles and bones in the back region. In such cases, your back pain may actually be a harbinger of lung diseases, heart diseases, stomach problems and similar conditions. It could also be the other way around. In particular, excessive tension in the back muscles may spread to the chest area and may be felt as pain.
