Back Pain Q & A

What causes back pain?

Back pain comes from various causes, ranging from pulled muscles to spinal injuries. Herniated spinal discs can result in back pain, as can pinched nerve conditions like sciatica. Your back pain can also be related to a chronic or degenerative condition like arthritis.

Back pain can be temporary or acute, relating to an issue or injury that improves with time and treatment. Or, your back pain can be related to a chronic condition that needs ongoing treatment and management.

When you understand more about the causes of your back pain, finding the right treatment becomes easier.

Are there different types of back pain?

Your back has many different components, all of which can become damaged, dysfunctional, or irritated, resulting in symptoms of back pain. Problems with your spinal bones, spinal discs, spinal nerves, and back muscles result in different back pain types.

The type of back pain you experience, and the location of your back pain symptoms, often give clues to the specific issue troubling you. You might suffer from low back pain, mid-back pain, shooting back pain, aching back pain, or back pain accompanied by numbness or tingling. Talk to Dr. Dube about your specific experience of back pain.
