Can Hemorrhoids Cause Back Pain?

August 8, 2016 Uncategorized 0

Hemorrhoids are a condition in which the veins in the anal canal become swollen and stretched under pressure. Hemorrhoids can cause many problems including itching, bleeding, pain, possible prolapse, and difficulty having bowel movements. Because back pain is common, some people with hemorrhoids who also have back pain think the pain in their back is caused by hemorrhoids. However, hemorrhoids do not cause back pain. Lower back pain can arise from many factors including a compressed spine, back injury, trauma, or pregnancy due to the increased weight of the body, but hemorrhoids are not one of the contributing factors.

One of the main reasons hemorrhoid sufferers think that their back pain is caused by their hemorrhoids is because the two affected areas of the body are in close proximity to one another. The only things that separate the lower back from the anal area are layers of muscle that are responsible for stabilizing the spine to the pelvis.

Finding Relief From Hemorrhoids

One of the most common ways people believe they can get relief from hemorrhoids is surgery, which can be costly, require anesthesia or sedation, and comes with risks. However, surgery is not the only effective way to treat hemorrhoids. At HemRelief Hemorrhoid Centers, we offer a non-invasive and very effective treatment option called the Infrared Coagulation method. This is a non-invasive hemorrhoid treatment involving a procedure that takes just 15-20 minutes and features no cutting, anesthesia, or post treatment stay in a hospital.

About Infrared Coagulation Treatment

Infrared Coagulation is a safe, quick and easy procedure designed to reduce the size of hemorrhoids using electrolysis. This FDA-approved treatment delivers a very low, direct current to the hemorrhoid, causing a reaction in it. While some people experience immediate relief with IRC treatment, most people find that their hemorrhoids shrink away over a period of 7-10 days. There is no need for bowel preparation with IRC nor any anesthesia or surgery involved. And since there is no surgical cutting done, there is no healing period. You can simply return to your normal daily activities immediately following IRC treatment.
