Myalgia  (Muscle Ache) and Lower Back Pain

Myalgia (Muscle Ache) and Lower Back Pain

What is Myalgia?
Myalgia is a general term for a symptom caused by a variety of disorders and medical conditions. It represents pain in a muscle or a group of muscles. Muscle aches and pains are common and can involve more than one muscle. Muscle pain also can involve ligaments, tendons, and fascia, the soft tissues that connect muscles, bones, and organs.

Myalgia can be triggered by many problems. Muscle pain is often related to tension, overuse, or muscle injury from exercise, sprains, strains, overexertion or physically-demanding work. The pain frequently involves specific muscles and starts during or just after the activity. Muscle pain also can be a symptom of other conditions affecting your whole body. Some viral infections and connective tissue disorders, such as lupus, may cause myalgia. Fibromyalgia (characterized by chronic widespread pain and allodynia, a heightened sensitivity to pressure) may cause tenderness in your muscles and surrounding soft tissue, sleep difficulties, fatigue, and headaches.

Similarly, back pain can have many different causes such as nerve irritation, disc herniation, bony encroachment, to name a few. However, one of the more common causes of low back pain (lumbar backache) includes lumbar strain. A lumbar strain is a stretch injury to the ligaments, tendons, and/or muscles of the low back. The stretching incident results in microscopic tears of varying degrees in these tissues. Lumbar strain is considered one of the most common causes of low back pain. The injury can occur because of overuse, improper use, or trauma. Soft-tissue injury is commonly classified as "acute" if it has been present for days to weeks. If the strain lasts longer than three months, it is referred to as "chronic." Lumbar strain most often occurs in people in their 40s, but it can happen at any age. The condition is characterized by localized discomfort in the low back area with onset after an event that mechanically stressed the lumbar tissues.
Lower Back Pain
What are the Symptoms associated with Myalgia and Lower Back Pain?
Pain, tenderness, swelling, redness or warmth are often present in the involved muscle groups.

How is myalgia and Lower Back Pain diagnosed?
During a physical examination, the doctor may find evidence of stiffness or inflamed and painful muscle groups in the affected area. Usually, X-ray imaging is helpful by excluding bone abnormalities in cases of lower back pain. The diagnosis of lumbar strain is based on the history of injury, the location of the pain, and exclusion of nervous system injury.

What is the typical treatment for myalgia and Lower Back Pain?

In both instances, patients often rest to avoid reinjury and acetaminophen or ibuprofen is recommended. Additionally, it is common apply ice for the first 24 - 72 hours of an injury to reduce pain and inflammation. After that, heat can feel more soothing. Gentle stretching exercises after a long rest period and massage can also helpful. Once the pain subsides, regular aerobic exercise can help restore proper muscle tone. Stretching and toning exercises help to feel better and stay pain-free. However, avoid high-impact aerobic activities and weight lifting when injured or while in pain.

Doctors may prescribe medication or physical therapy, or refer you to a specialized pain clinic.

The Ateevia Botanica PRIME Difference
Ateevia's PRIME Therapy utilizes plant extracts with known pharmacological activity as the successfully basis in the fight against the initiation of an inflammatory process. For example, lignans are plant hormones known as phytoestrogens. A phytoestrogen is a plant constituent that possesses estrogenic activity. Phytoestrogens are not precursors of human hormones, but rather they interact with human estrogen receptors to elicit various responses. Diets high in lignans have demonstrated in animals a direct anti-inflammatory effect due to its known antioxidant properties.

Investigations on the effects of plant lignans reveal that the isolated lignan derivatives contribute strongly to anti-inflammatory activity by intervening against inflammatory markers. Isolated pure lignans inhibit the production of major systemic markers of inflammation. These effects have been demonstrated in animals, healthy volunteers and in patients diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis. Furthermore, regular lignan intake can help retard the production of atherosclerosis by reducing inflammatory responses.

The term inflammation covers a complex series of reparative and protective responses to tissue injury, whether caused by infection, autoimmune stimuli or mechanical injury. Ateevia's PRIME offers an all natural, safe solution to the common ailment of inflammation-based pain. Containing plant substances serving as anti-inflammatory agents that can influence the earlier stages of inflammation, PRIME has become the go-to solution for so many in their goal to suppress inflammation, and a ubiquitous daily defense against pain. Try PRIME and witness its potent anti-inflammatory properties for yourself.
