How Common is Back Pain?

Back pain is the most common reason people call out of work and visit their primary care physician. Around eight out of ten people have experienced some form of back pain in their lives. There are numerous reasons someone may experience back pain, including a fall, accident, and health factors. However, certain elements may increase the risks of back pain in people, such as:

  • Age: People tend to develop back pain as they get older, especially those over thirty.
  • Weight: Overweight people might experience back pain because the excess weight puts added pressure on the back joints and discs.
  • General Health: People who smoke, drink alcohol excessively, or live a sedentary lifestyle have a higher risk of back pain.
  • Occupation and Lifestyle: Work and daily life activities that involve strain on the back increase individuals’ risks of back pain.
  • Structural Problems: Back conditions such as scoliosis change the spine’s alignment, causing back pain.
  • Disease: People diagnosed with osteoarthritis, certain types of cancer, and other diseases may experience back pain as a symptom of their disease.
  • Mental Health: Depression and anxiety may cause back pain.

Back pain can result from many different injuries, conditions, or diseases, and often results from an injury to the muscles or tendons in the back. Pain may range from mild to severe. In certain circumstances, pain can make it challenging to walk, sleep, work, or any other daily activity. While most back pain may get better with rest, pain relievers and at-home exercise, pain that continues despite these elements should be checked by a doctor. Chronic and severe pain may require surgical repair. The best way to know the cause of your back pain is by consulting a spine specialist who will know how to best treat your pain.

Common Back Pain Symptoms

Symptoms of pain may come on suddenly or appear gradually. Pain may be sharp, dull, achy, or radiate from the back down to the legs. Specific positions (like bending over) may exacerbate the pain. Symptoms to look out for are:

  • Stiffness
  • Posture problems
  • Muscle spasms
  • Bowel problems
  • Tingling in one or both legs
  • Fever

Most people with back strains or sprains recover and don’t have long-term health issues. However, people with chronic back pain should seek medical attention. Consulting with an experienced spine doctor will help treat your pain and avoid future problems.
