What Contributes to Back Pain?

Many factors contribute to the conditions that cause back pain. Some of the leading causes for back pain include:

  • Health factors such as weight, stress levels, or smoking
  • Failed neck or back surgery
  • Torn ligaments or tendons
  • Neck and back injuries from accidents or falls
  • Osteoarthritis in the spine or joints
  • Pinched nerves
  • Herniated discs in the lumbar
  • Strains and sprains
  • Fractures
  • Disc problems
  • Structural problems
  • Arthritis
  • Spine tumors
  • Infections
  • Certain types of cancer

The complex nature of the back and the various environmental, lifestyle, and genetic factors can make it difficult to determine the source of someone’s back pain. When one or more components that make up the spine are damaged, strained, broken, or torn, the consequences can be severe. Symptoms of back pain occur on a spectrum from mild to severe. While most people can find pain relief with time, lifestyle changes, and over-the-counter medications, the more severe and constant the pain, the higher the chances are that you may be suffering from a spinal issue that requires professional attention.


The Three Categories for Back Pain

Back pain may appear suddenly or gradually and range from mild to severe. Understanding the three categories of back pain can help you determine if it’s time to seek a spinal specialist.

  • Acute: Acute or short-term pain resolves within a few days or weeks. It is no longer acute pain if it lasts more than six weeks.
  • Subacute: Subacute pain may last between four to twelve weeks. In some cases, it can be treated with time and at home, but the appearance of subacute pain may indicate a larger issue.
  • Chronic: Chronic pain is divided into two categories: chronic pain with an identifiable source of pain and chronic pain with no identifiable source of pain. If you are suffering from chronic pain, it’s important to seek medical attention as soon as possible to prevent further damage to your spine.

In addition to the level and consistency of the pain, if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms as a companion to the pain, it may be time to consult a spinal specialist.

  • Pain in one or both legs
  • Weakness, numbness, or tingling in one or both legs
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Bowel or bladder problems
  • Pain followed by a fever
  • Pain following a bad fall or accident

Pinpointing the exact source of the pain may sometimes be challenging due to the many internal and external factors that can contribute to back pain. However, a skilled spine specialist will have the knowledge and resources to find the cause of your pain and provide you with the best treatment plan possible.
