Back Pain Q&A

What is back pain?

Back pain is an uncomfortable feeling in your upper, mid, or lower back. It might feel like dull aching pain, sharp stabbing pain, soreness, or stiffness. You may also notice shooting pain as well as numbness and tingling into your legs and feet. 

Back pain may also present as decreased range of motion, burning or shooting pain, tingling, or numbness. Treatment with Total Health Solutions Medical Center can offer you relief. 

What are the risk factors for back pain?

Back pain may occur because of several factors, including:

  • Ligament or muscle strains
  • Arthritis
  • Ruptured or bulging disks
  • Osteoporosis
  • Fractures
  • Physical inactivity
  • Older age
  • Obesity
  • Improper lifting
  • Smoking
  • Cancer
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Injuries

You might experience back pain after a sports injury, car accident, or lifting something heavy. Practice proper lifting techniques to reduce your risk of back injuries.

Additional ways to lower your risk of back pain include getting regular exercise, boosting strength and flexibility, not smoking, and maintaining a healthy weight. Use good posture both standing and sitting, especially at a computer. 

How is back pain diagnosed?

To find the root cause of back pain, your specialist reviews your symptoms and medical history. They examine your back and may ask you to move around in various positions. 

Your provider might suggest you undergo blood tests, X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, bone scans, orthopedic tests or nerve studies to diagnose your condition and develop a treatment plan.
