Back Pain

The majority of us suffer from lower back pain at some point in our lives. If back pain has been present for less than a month, doctors usually refer to it as “acute”, and as “chronic” if the discomfort has continued for longer than this.

Causes


The causes of lower back pain include:

  • Muscle injury
  • Nerve damage
  • Bone damage or disease
  • Problems with the pelvis, chest and abdomen

Symptoms


Lower back pain is obviously the main symptom. However, others include:

  • Leg pain
  • Pain worsening with movement and activity
  • Numbness or weakness
