Stomach and Back Pain

Do back pain and stomach pain go together? For many people, the answer is yes. This situation is rarely serious, but it can be difficult to live with: back pain is bad enough, but coupled with abdominal pain and intestinal distress it’s even worse. Missing work, being unable to enjoy meals with the family and not knowing what to do about the situation creates additional stress you just don’t need. Medication only relieves back pain temporarily, without addressing the underlying causes – so the pain returns again and again. But don’t despair! There’s a solution to your stomach and back pain that’s 100% safe and natural.

Back and Stomach Pain

Back pain is often caused by dysfunction of the facet joints (interlocking “fingers” on the back of each vertebra) or by degeneration such as bulging discs. Muscle strain is another common culprit. And while it may seem illogical that any of these should affect your abdomen or digestion, it actually makes sense when you understand how the back works.

Is your back pain related to your stomachache?
When any part of the spinal structure isn’t working properly, it affects the many nerves traveling along the spinal canal. These nerves carry instructions from the brain to every single part of your body. So if a bulging disc that causes lower back pain is pressing on a nerve that serves the stomach, for example, there’s an excellent chance that the stomach will also experience pain and function at a diminished capacity. The compressed nerves may affect the intestines also, creating digestive upset along with the stomachache. And when muscles in the back are strained, compensatory muscles in the front may become overworked as well, resulting in abdominal muscle pain.

Finally, from an emotional perspective, dealing with chronic back pain can cause stress and emotional turmoil, which often directly affects digestion.

More Serious Problems

The majority of people with back and stomach pain do not have a serious illness. However, if your abdominal pain is severe, it’s important to have it checked out, as it could be a sign of one or more of the following:

  • Kidney stones
  • Gall stones
  • Appendicitis
  • Diverticulitis

If your stomach and back pain is more typical, there’s hope for you as well. A natural approach to stomach and back pain relief is available.
