Muscle and Joint Pain

Muscle pain can commonly be felt in the upper back, lower back, neck and shoulders. Joint pain can affect one joint or more, and can be caused by arthritis, injury, overuse, bursitis (an inflammation or irritation of the bursa, a fluid-filled sac that acts like a grease to reduce friction) and other conditions. The knees, hips, spine and hands can also be affected by osteoarthritis.

MANAGING DIFFERENT TYPES OF BACK PAIN

Four out of five people will suffer from back pain at some point in their lives.59 There are countless causes of back pain, from regularly lifting children up to spending prolonged periods of time hunched over a laptop. When back pain occurs, the pain can be debilitating and cause real disruption to daily life.60

Upper back pain versus lower back pain

Back pain may occur in the upper back (the thoracic back – the part of the back where the ribs attach) or the lower back.61

Upper back pain can be felt in the top half of the back and in the shoulders. You may also experience neck pain. It can be caused by:62,63

  • damage to ligaments and tendons that have been overstretched. For example, during a vehicle accident or during a workout
  • stress and emotional tension that make muscles tighten and contract
  • poor posture that places additional stress on the spine and overloads the surrounding muscles and ligaments.

To relieve pain in the upper back, consider taking over-the-counter painkillers, such as paracetamol. You could also take an oral non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) or apply a topical NSAID.62,63

In contrast, lower back pain is felt at the base of the back. Lower back pain may be triggered by:61

  • lifting something too heavy
  • overstretching the lower back muscles
  • direct injury or trauma.

These can cause a sprain or strain in the lower back, leading to pain and sometimes muscle spasms. Excessive weight, poor posture and stress may also contribute to pain in the lower back.61 For lower back pain relief, try using over-the-counter painkillers or applying hot compression packs.59

Acute versus chronic back pain

Regardless of their location, back aches can be classified further as either acute or chronic, based on how long the pain lasts.59,61

Acute back pain is short-term, typically lasting from a few days to a few weeks. Symptoms range from shooting or stabbing pain to mild muscle aches, limited flexibility and range of motion, as well as inability to stand up straight.61

If the pain lasts for three months or more, it is considered chronic. The condition is often progressive, meaning it gets worse over time. The cause of chronic back pain can be hard to determine and usually requires treatment by a doctor or a pain specialist.61
