If you are struggling with back pain, you are not alone. Back pain and related medical conditions are the most common forms of disability in the United States. Experts estimate that 80 percent of Americans will experience back pain at some point in their lifetime. While most low back pain is acute, sometimes back pain is sustained and lasts for 12 weeks or longer. In this case, the pain is classified as chronic.
Most back pain occurs in the lower back. Your lower back is composed of five vertebrae, which support the majority of your upper body weight. In between the vertebrae are round intervertebral disks that cushion the bones as the body moves. Bands of tissue—referred to as ligaments—help hold the lower vertebrae in place. When any of these systems are damaged by aging, obesity, or severe injuries, it manifests as lower back pain. While there are many causes of back pain, some of the most common include:
- Pinched nerves from bone spurs or spinal stenosis
- Bulging, degenerated, or herniated discs
- Osteoarthritis in the spine or joints
- Torn ligaments or tendons, like rotator cuff tendinitis
- Neck and back injuries, like whiplash
- Failed neck or back surgery
Additionally, other health and risk factors such as obesity, psychological stress, and inflammatory conditions are common culprits of back pain.
Back pain presents as a range of symptoms. Some people might have mild to moderate muscle aches while others will experience sharp, shooting pain down their back and legs. The majority of back pain is acute and will resolve after rest. However, some back pain can persist for weeks or months. If your symptoms persist, it is important to see a spine doctor. You should make an appointment with a spine doctor if your back pain:
- Persists for more than two weeks
- Causes pain, numbness, or tingling down one or both of your legs
- Is accompanied by a fever, bowel problems, or unexplained weight loss
- Is the result of a bad fall or serious injury
