Back pain is the most common and disruptive pain you can experience, making daily tasks feel difficult. Whether your pain is caused by normal aging, or you’ve suffered a significant injury, it can drastically impact your physical and emotional health as aches and pains keep you from living life to the fullest. Back pain shouldn’t impact your mobility, or make you cancel your plans and live life around the tension, clicking, or grinding.
At Anodyne Health, we want to help you find a reason and non-opioid relief for your back pain so you can regain your mobility and go back to your daily activities pain-free.
Back Pain Causes
Back pain is one of the most common patient complaints with a broad range of causes, treatments, and options. Finding the root cause of your back pain is key to creating a treatment plan that gets you back to living a life you love. Common causes of back pain include:
- Muscle sprains and strains
- Herniated Discs
- Spinal Fractures
- Degenerative Diseases
- Overuse Injuries
- Sports Injuries
- Vehicle Accidents
- Pinched Nerve
Back Pain Symptoms
Back pain can be classified into one of three categories:
- Acute: Back pain lasts a few days to a few weeks, occurring every few days.
- Subacute: Back pain that lasts several months and occurs sporadically.
- Chronic: Back pain that occurs daily and lasts more than 12 weeks.
Back pain is defined by pain in the upper back near the shoulders, mid back under the ribs, and lower back above the buttocks. Some types of back pain respond to lifestyle changes such as stretching, applying heat or cold packs to the painful area, and taking over-the-counter NSAIDs. Tell your doctor if any new onset or worsening of back pain occurs, as there may be other serious underlying conditions.
Seek medical attention if you have chronic back pain that isn’t responding to self-care or is accompanied by symptoms such as numbness, tingling, urinary or bowel disruptions, fever, extreme weight loss, or weight gain.
People experiencing back pain experience symptoms such as:
- Pain when moving, lifting, or bending
- Hot, burning, or stabbing pain that radiates (spreads) down into the legs into the buttock or hip
- Muscle Spasms
- Throbbing pain
- Worsening pain when standing, sitting, or lying down
- Grinding or clicking pain
