The Symptoms of Back Pain Symptoms

If back pain symptoms last for more than a week or two – or if the pain is so severe and does not improve, it is essential for you to seek medical attention and help.  

Common Causes of Back Pain

Degenerative disorders and acute or chronic injuries all have the potential to create variations in back pain. These are the most common -

  • Bulging/Ruptured/Herniated Discs The intervertebral discs can rupture or bulge, which places pressure directly on nerves and causes back pain, which can be severe.
  • Osteoarthritis A gradual erosion of the spine joints’ cartilage.
  • Muscle/Ligament Strain Overexertion, improper lifting, or sudden awkward movements have the potential to strain back ligaments and muscles. This is especially true for those in poor physical condition who are required to stand for extended periods.
  • Osteoporosis This condition is when the bones become thin and weak, which makes the bones more prone to fractures and back pain.
