This is a question that we hear a lot coming from our new patients; why does my back always hurt?

Well, there could be many reasons why your back is always hurting. First, we need to look at the symptoms of your back pain.

Symptoms of back pain can include:

  • Continued aching or stiffness anywhere in your back area: the spine, neck, or tail bone area
  • Sharp pain in a specific area of your neck, upper back, or lower back. Be sure to notify emergency services if there is a sharp pain in the upper back and it is labouring your breathing, this can be a sign of a heart attack.
  • Chronic ache in the middle of your back that may be caused by long periods of sitting or standing.
  • Back pain that connects all the way down your back into your calf and toes

Inability to stand straight without having pain or muscle spasms

Call your Doctor About Back Pain Immediately If:

  • You feel numbness, tingling, or weakness in your arms, legs or groin. This may mean that you have significant damage to your spinal cord.
  • The pain is accompanied by fever, burning during urination or frequent urination. You may have an infection

Why Your Back Is Always Sore: Potential Causes…

Below are some Spine-Related Problems that could be the source of your back or neck pain…

  • Herniated or slipped discs: Herniated discs usually cause pain in your lower back or hip area. This is because the nerves are being affected or squished.
  • Bulging discs: This is similar to the pain that results from a herniated disc, but the difference will be that the pain only occurs if you actually push on the nerve root. It’s important that you deal with this sooner than later before it progresses into a more serious problem. The pain from this occurrence can feel like it is coming from another part of your body, such as your heart, abdomen, or kidneys.
  • Degenerative disc disease: This often happens as you age due to the fact that your vertebrae can shrink or tear, causing the bones to rub together. It may cause muscle tension, muscle spasms, and even radiating pain that feels sharp, stabbing, or hot.

    There are many solutions to these problems, and if you have had to deal with back pain; you may already be on medication for it. But wouldn’t it be nice to try something that involves no medication and no surgery?
