The majority of back pain symptoms stem from inflammation due to an acute injury or overuse of the muscles, joints, or tendons.
Understanding and adhering to proper posture and lifting techniques can help decrease your chance for sustaining a back injury, such as a fracture, herniated disc, or strained muscle.
However, not all causes of back pain are as easily preventable; pain can also arise from a chronic condition, such as scoliosis, or a condition that has developed over time, such as osteoarthritis.
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms of back pain, it’s important to seek treatment as soon as possible before your back injury or condition worsens:

  • Persistent aching or stiffness
  • Achiness in the lower back after sitting for an extended period of time
  • Sudden, sharp pain in a localized area of the back
  • Pain that affects posture while sitting, standing, or walking
  • Numbness, tingling, or weakness in the arms or legs
