Do You Have Back Pain?
Millions of people every year experience back pain; it is an extremely common and multifaceted health condition that is recurring and chronic for many men and women. It has been estimated that as much as 80% of the global population will experience at least one lifetime episode.
Symptoms and Causes of Back Pain
Back pain--whether in the neck, mid-back, low back, or pelvis--is a very broad term that involves a wide range of potential symptoms, causes, and treatments. Of course, pain is one of the main symptoms associated with acute or chronic spine dysfunction. This pain can either be localized to the back or referred elsewhere in the body. Other symptoms that are often present with back pain include numbness, weakness, or tingling in the legs or arms, decreased mobility, decreased activity tolerance, impaired sleep, and psychological symptoms including depression and anxiety.
The cause of back pain can vary for every person, and in some cases the exact cause is not always clear. Common causes include muscle and ligaments strains and sprains, disk herniations, arthritis and other types of bone and joint dysfunction, and poor body mechanics. Events such as car accidents, sports injuries, or repetitive work injuries can also lead to back pain.
