Therapy for back problems in the OZMO

There are many causes of back pain. Wear and tear on the intervertebral discs seems to play a decisive role. An intervertebral disc consists of the inner soft nucleus (nucleus pulposus) and an outer fibrous ring (annulus fibrosus). The optimal combination of soft core and outer ring takes over the function of damping. However, in the course of life, the kernel dehydrates, i.e. it loses water and “shrinks” (a grape becomes a raisin). In the MRI, this disc appears black as a so-called “black disc”. Causes of this process are genetic factors, change in metabolism and external stresses. This also leads to the fact that some people get complaints very early, others later and still others not at all.

But back pain can also have other causes, which is why an orthopedic evaluation should always be the remedy of choice.
