The Common Causes of Back Pain

Back pain is one of the most common forms of disability and causes many Americans to miss work every day. The majority of back pain will resolve with rest and conservative treatment. However, some back pain is sustained and can last for a month or even over three months. This pain is classified as a chronic condition.

There is a wide range of causes for back pain. Health factors such as obesity, stress, and aging are some common culprits. Additionally, some of the most common causes of back pain include: 

  • Pinched nerves from bone spurs or spinal stenosis
  • Bulging, degenerated, or herniated discs
  • Osteoarthritis in the spine or joints
  • Torn ligaments or tendons, such as rotator cuff tendinitis
  • Neck and back injuries, such as whiplash

The best way to identify the root of your pain is to consult a spine doctor.  

When You Should See a Spine Doctor

Back pain manifests on a spectrum of symptoms. Mild to moderate symptoms include muscle soreness, while more intense symptoms include shooting pain down the legs or numbness in the tailbone. Most back pain is classified as acute, meaning it will resolve with rest or conservative treatments. However, if your back pain lasts for weeks or months, it is probably caused by an underlying condition that needs to be addressed. In this scenario, it is important to see a spine doctor. 

Additionally, you should consult with a spine doctor if your back pain falls under any of the following conditions: 

  • It persists for more than two weeks
  • It causes pain, numbness, or tingling down one or both of your legs 
  • It is accompanied by a fever, bowel problems, or unexplained weight loss
  • It is the result of a bad fall or serious injury

If you have known genetic predispositions to back pain, you should seek medical attention at the onset of your pain. 

How a Spine Doctor Can Help You Conquer Your Back Pain

Consulting with a skilled spine doctor or orthopedic specialist is the best way to understand the underlying cause of your back pain and start a treatment plan specific to your needs.
