back pain conditions

Causes:

Back pain may be referred to the hip, groin, buttocks, the leg and foot as sciatica. The basic causes of low back pain are muscular weakness and postural strain due to being overweight, sitting too much, lack of exercise, unequal leg-length, trauma or over-exercise. Sometimes it is the cushion between the bones (intervertebral disc) which bulges (herniates) and compresses spinal nerves.

back pain symptoms

Causes:

Symptoms range from a dull ache to a stabbing or shooting sensation. The pain may make it hard to move or stand up straight. Acute back pain comes on suddenly, often after an injury from sports or heavy lifting. Pain that lasts more than three months is considered chronic. You should always consult your chiropractor if you are experiencing these symptoms.
