man back pain 200x300 5 Ways to Protect Yourself When Throwing Out Your Back Throwing out your back is simply a term used to describe pain experienced in the lower back after a sudden twisting or bending movement – you cannot actually throw your back out in a literal sense.

When someone throws their back out, the most common symptom is feeling like something within the back is out of place and needs to be put back into it’s original position. This uncomfortable feeling most often is associated with some type of severe pain. The lower back is the most common area that feels pain when someone throws their back out.

Although some people may think that they have thrown their back out, it is important to get examined by a medical professional, since other more serious conditions can also cause severe back pain. Such causes include things like a herniated disc, muscle spasm, spinal arthritis, and pinched nerves.

Using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machines or computerized tomography (CT) scans will rarely show anything but an abnormality within the spine, not related to throwing out your back. Fortunately, there are several options to help relieve your back pain.

    Many people would be interested to know this especially sport persons. Many times the pain is ascribed to 'muscle pull' and is chronically neglected. As a spine practitioner, I have seen several patients ending up with serious complications requiring corrective surgery. Indeed, a guiding article, written in a succulent manner.
