What are the causes and symptoms of back pain?
Back pain can become a serious problem if it is not treated in time, as this area is responsible for giving stability to our whole body, and also protects the spinal column and all its connections.
There are many causes of back pain, as this symptom is directly related to a series of more serious health problems which, although not always serious, should be treated and corrected as soon as possible.
- Muscle strain: if you have recently tried to lift a very heavy object using the wrong technique, some of the lower back muscles may suffer and become inflamed, causing a sharp pain in the lower back.
- Herniated disc: when a vertebral disc slips out of position and begins to press on a nerve in the spine, a point of intense pain is generated in the back, which, if not treated in time, can even immobilise the sufferer until surgery is used to correct it.
- Arthritis: when the cartilage covering the vertebral discs is damaged, they begin to rub against each other, causing intense pain that can be felt throughout the back.
- Trauma: receiving a severe blow to the back will cause a haematoma, which in turn will cause pain for several days while the tissues heal if the damage is not too severe.
- Osteoarthritis: this disease wears down and weakens the bones, which in the back generates intense pain that can extend to the lumbar, buttocks and even the cervical area.
- Sciatica: When we suffer from a pinched sciatic nerve, this produces a very uncomfortable pain in the lower back, which can extend to the buttocks, legs and even the ankle.
When back pain is caused by any of the above-mentioned causes, it is more than likely to be accompanied by other much more serious symptoms such as those mentioned below:
- Instability when standing upright.
- Pain when lifting an object or turning the trunk.
- Pain in the buttocks and legs.
- Numbness in the legs.
- Difficulty bending forward or backward.
- Lack of mobility.
- Stiffness and general discomfort.
For any of these combined symptoms, a doctor should be consulted for an accurate diagnosis, especially if the pain is recurrent and of a very high intensity.
