What Causes Back Pain?
Back pain is one of the most common medical complaints among adults and some studies have shown that almost 80% of adults will experience back pain at some point in their life.
Most cases of back pain are caused by overuse or a muscle strain and the good news is that most cases of back pain will subside on their own after rest and temporary activity modification.
When back pain does not subside for weeks and interferes with daily activities, it is then known as chronic back pain. This is when you should seek the expertise of one of the Board Certified Spine Specialists at OrthoNeuro to determine the underlying cause of chronic back pain.
Also, it is important to make an appointment if you begin to experience pain, numbness, or tingling in the buttocks, legs, or feet as this may be a sign of a more serious condition.
