Back Pain

Back and spine pain is one of the most common causes for doctor visits in the United States. In fact, about 50 million Americans currently suffer from chronic back pain. This type of pain most often occurs between the ages of 30 and 50, and is the number one reason adults under the age of 45 miss work. If you’re dealing with this debilitating condition, you’re definitely not alone.

In most cases, back pain subsides after a few days of rest and basic self-care like icing or heating the affected area. In other cases, back pain can be an emergency. You should seek prompt medical attention if:

  • Your back pain results from an injury or fall.
  • The pain remains severe even after resting or taking medication.
  • You have loss of control in your legs or arms, tingling, or numbness, which could be signs of a spinal cord injury.
  • Your back pain results in loss of bowel or bladder control.

If any of these signs are present, dial 9-1-1 or visit your nearest emergency room. Learn more about back and spine pain
