Chronic back pain pressure points


What is chronic back pain ?

Chronic back pain is caused by long time muscular tension, which triggers pains by accumulated pain in muscle. Generally, back pain has 3 types. 


Back pain types

1.Zygapophysial joint back pain

2.Muscle/fascia back pain

3.Spondylosis deformans


1.Zygapophysial joint back pain

All kinds of back pain it occurs from zygapophysial joints called “zygapophysial joints back pain"

In chronic back pain case, zygapophysial joints distortion can be found.


2.Muscle/fascia back pain

Chronic back pain can be caused muscular tension, which is triggered by bad blood circulation. Most of the pain and stiffness occurs around the side of  erector muscle of spine but also buttocks and a bit away from spine.


3.Spondylosis deformans

Back pains cause by aging and distortion of tissue around spine. Its feature is the pains occur at first move like standing up, walking. After some moves, the pain will disappear or be lighter but keeping the same posture, the pains will appear or be stronger again. 

(If the pain comes from aging but if it is located around zygapophysial joints classified “zygapophysial joints back pain", and if it’s found in muscle or fascia classified “muscle/fascia back pain" )
