Common Causes of Back Pain

Back pain is one of the most common medical conditions. More than 80% of the population will experience some sort of back pain during their lives, but there are many reasons why. The following are just a few possible causes for your discomfort.

  • Muscle strains: If you feel pain when picking up objects, you probably strained a muscle. Muscle strains often come from picking up heavy objects, especially if you lift them improperly. 
  • Arthritis: 23% of all adults have arthritis, a condition which causes chronic inflammation to your joints.
  • Bad posture: Many people slouch when sitting or standing. One of the easiest ways to reduce the chances of back pain occurring is to maintain good posture. 
  • Disc issues: Between your vertebrae, there are discs that help absorb the shock of movement. Discs can slip, bulge, or degenerate over time. 

Most people experience back pain as they get older, but other health issues and weight can contribute to pain. 

When Should I See a Doctor About My Back Pain? 

Most back pain will fade away within a few weeks. You can also take aspirin and do light exercises to help ease your pain. But if your pain persists or increases over time, it’s essential to seek medical attention. You should schedule a doctor’s appointment right away if you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms: 

  • Fever
  • Unexplained weight loss 
  • Loss of bladder or bowel control 
  • Numbness or tingling in one or both legs 

Back pain can be a sign of a more serious health condition, including cancer, so it’s important not to delay medical treatment. Similarly, if you were recently in an accident and are experiencing new back pain, you should speak with a doctor about the accident.

No matter your condition, our back doctors in Brandon, Florida, will do everything they can to help relieve your pain. 

Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery 

In traditional open surgeries, doctors create a large incision and cut tissue or muscles while operating on a patient. Conversely, doctors make a small incision, about the size of a stamp, and move tissue and muscles out of the way in minimally invasive surgeries. This makes surgery much less stress-inducing on the body. Some other benefits include shorter recovery time, increased accuracy, and less scarring.
