Today, 31 million Americans are suffering from lower back pain, and experts estimate that 80 percent of Americans will experience back pain in their lifetime. Composed of bones, joints, ligaments, and muscles, your back has many moving parts. Any back injury can result in long-term pain.
Both serious injuries and subtle movements can cause painful symptoms. For example, the simple act of picking a pencil off the ground can aggravate your muscles. Additionally, risk factors such as inflammatory conditions, stress, and obesity can further complicate a back injury and make it challenging to recover. Some of the 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, like rotator cuff tendinitis
- Neck and back injuries, such as whiplash
- Failed neck or back surgery
Back pain symptoms can range from mild muscle pains to sharp, shooting sensations in your lower back and legs. The majority of back pain will improve with rest and conservative treatments. However, some back pain is the result of an underlying condition and requires treatment. If your pain does not subside, it is important to see a spine doctor. You should see a spine doctor when your pain:
- Does not improve with rest and continues to cause severe discomfort
- Causes feelings of numbness or tingling in your legs
- Is accompanied by a fever, bladder problems, or unexplained weight loss
- Is the result of a serious fall or injury, such as a car accident
