What Causes Back Pain?
Several different issues, from a muscle strain to a pinched nerve, can cause back pain. The low back is the body’s center point and gets used in all positions, from standing to sitting. The back is surrounded by muscles that help control the joints of the low back. Often back pain is caused by a specific lifting or bending incident that causes the low back to tighten and become painful.
The low back is essential for all aspects of movement, which is why it so commonly gets injured. Because there are many joints, muscles, and nerves around the back, it is essential to identify what is causing the pain and treat the deeper issue. When working with a physical therapist, you will learn to identify why your back pain has occurred. You will also be able to develop exercises to help prevent it from happening again.
Common Symptoms of Back Pain
- Aching or sharp pain on one or both sides of the low back
- Pain going down the leg
- Difficulty walking or standing
- Decreased ability to bend or sit
- Stiffness throughout the low back
