What Causes Back Pain?
Back pain can be tricky to diagnose because many conditions, injuries, and diseases can cause back pain. Back pain comes on suddenly and is usually connected to an injury or accident for most people. This injury could be a slip and fall or an automobile accident. Back pain resulting from an injury usually impacts the hard or soft tissues in the back. Examples of an injury that can cause back pain include a sprain, tear, strain, or fracture.
However, back pain can also be the result of a disease or a condition. This type of back pain is usually gradual, coming on slowly. This pain is the case with many diseases and conditions such as osteoporosis, arthritis, spinal stenosis, or scoliosis. The pain can be in the upper or lower back and can even impact your extremities. Lastly, back pain can come from habitual motions or movements, such as an overuse injury or back pain caused by poor posture.
What Are the Symptoms of Back Pain?
Back pain can vary significantly from person to person, depending on the condition and the severity of the injury. Back pain may be sharp and stabbing for some, while back pain may be dull and aching for others. Other symptoms can also accompany back pain. Sometimes numbness and tingling accompany back pain. It is common to have numbness and a tingling sensation in the arms, legs, feet, and shoulders. This symptom is very common with disc injuries.
