Back Pain Q & A

What are the symptoms of back pain?

Whether you’ve pulled a muscle, pinched a nerve, or sustained an injury, back pain can stop you in your tracks. Symptoms of back pain are:

  • Dull ache
  • Stabbing sensation
  • Shooting pain
  • Difficulty standing or moving
  • Leg weakness
  • Tingling or numbness

If your back pain is accompanied by loss of bladder or bowel control, sudden weight loss, fever, or abdominal pain, it may be a medical emergency and require immediate care.

What causes back pain?

For a majority of people, back pain is due to strain or structural problems that affect your discs and vertebrae. Typical causes of back pain are:

  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Scoliosis
  • Fracture
  • Sacroiliac joint dysfunction
  • Muscle strain
  • Pinched nerve
  • Degenerative disc disease

Other far less common causes of back pain are spinal stenosis, which causes your spinal canal to narrow; infection of the spine; tumor on or cancer in the spine; and degenerative spondylolisthesis.
