Back Pain Symptoms
Back pain has as a variety of symptoms, many of which are connected to the fundamental dysfunction in back structures. Individuals may experience muscle pain, pain that runs down the legs, or pain during movement. The pain itself may be sudden and stabbing, or it may be a chronic dull ache that worsens when engaging in activities. Standing up straight may be difficult. You may only have relief when reclining. Discomfort may be centered in the lower back, middle back, or upper back. You may also have numbness, tingling, or weakness in your legs.
Causes of Back Pain
Back pain can result from overuse, strains, falls, or from degenerative conditions that affect spinal structures. Herniated discs, or ruptured discs, are a common problem that can lead to chronic back discomfort. Stenosis, a narrowing of the spinal canal, can cause pressure on nerves which causes pain. Degenerative disc disease and arthritis can become progressively worse, making normal activities more difficult. Auto accidents can also lead to chronic back problems.
