Typical Back Pain Symptoms

The symptoms of back pain vary but may include one or more of the following –

  • Discomfort characterized as a sharp pain or dull ache.
  • Sore/tender muscles that may cause stiffness or limit movement.
  • Muscle spasms.
  • Numbness/tingling radiating down arms or legs.

If any of the above symptoms do not go away after a few weeks – or the pain is severe and chronic, it is important to seek a health consultation with a chiropractor.

Typical Back Pain Causes

The causes of back pain also vary and result from years of poor posture, an unexpected injury, or a degenerative disorder. This includes, in part -

  • Bulging or Ruptured Spinal Discs Spinal discs cushion vertebra but have the potential to rupture or bulge. This may cause pain and compression of a nerve.
  • Pulled Muscle or Strained Ligament Back pain may occur from moving suddenly or awkwardly – or repeatedly lifting heaving objects. Constant over-straining can create muscle issues and ligament strains for those who are out of shape.
  • Arthritis or Osteoporosis
    • Various types of arthritis may cause back pain; however, osteoarthritis is the most common, occurring when cartilage wears down over time. Spinal stenosis, which refers to the spinal cord’s narrowing, is another type of arthritis.
    • Osteoporosis is a disorder in which the bones become brittle/porous, which makes them much more vulnerable to fracture/breaking.
