What is back pain?

Back pain is discomfort that can appear in any part of the back. The different parts of the back are thoracic, cervical, or lumbar spine. 

Back pain can be chronic and is commonly related to some spine-related problems, such as a ruptured or herniated disc, whiplash, osteoporosis, degenerative joint disease and/or muscle or ligament sprain /strain. Generally, the pain can be acute, especially if it is ignored over a period of time. 

Back pain is also common after a fall or lifting heavy objects. So it is important to be careful about how you use your back during work or home activities.

Symptoms of back pain

Of all the types of back pain, the most frequent is lower back pain, known as lumbago. Some of the symptoms include:

  • Dull ache
  • Sharp shooting pain
  • Stabbing pain

With complex spine disorders, symptoms can include:

  • Numbness and tingling
  • Pain in the neck, low back, and arms
  • Radiating pain symptoms to the legs and feet in severe cases


Common causes of back pain include improper lifting, poor posture, lack of regular exercise,  ruptured disc, back joint dysfunction, arthritis and muscle spasms. It is rarely caused by a stress fracture or disease. Even when you have minor back pain, it is highly recommended to see a chiropractor. Early treatment often prevents long term problems.


Ignoring back pain may seem like the best option right now, but there is a risk that the frequency and severity of exacerbations will increase over time. There is also an increased risk of degenerative disc disease with symptoms left unchecked and untreated. In some cases, symptoms of back pain can be from cancer and other serious diseases.


Treatment of low back pain can range from bed rest to surgery.

Among the standard therapeutic options are:

  • Manual spinal manipulation
  • Mobilization
  • Bed rest, especially when the pain is short-term
  • Spinal exercises
  • Traction
  • In severe cases, surgery


  • The best advice is to let pain be your guide
  • Pay close attention to your posture
  • Sleep on your back with a pillow under your knees or on your side with a pillow between your legs
  • Use cold therapy for the first 48 to 72 hours after an acute injury, and then use heat
  • Use heat for gradual onset muscular pain

What are the signs of serious back pain?

You are probably wondering, how can I tell if my back pain is serious? There are seven signs that indicate severe back pain:

  1. Interferes with sleep.
  2. It does not go away with medication or rest.
  3. Numbness, tingling, or symptoms in the legs.
  4. The back pain is unrelenting and lasts more than a few days.
  5. Unexplained weight loss.
  6. It is very intense after a fall (indicates potential fracture).
  7. Intermittent symptoms that last more than a few months.

Which is the best painkiller for back pain relief?

Some people take OTC medicines such as acetaminophen, or ibuprofen, but these only provide temporary pain relief. We highly recommend that you see a chiropractor right away.

Do I have to consult a doctor if I have back pain?

It is recommended to see a chiropractor even if the pain is mild and temporary. We can identify the root cause and fix it before there is significant back damage. If it worsens over the days or does not improve and becomes chronic, it is recommended you see a chiropractor specializing in back pain.

How can I quickly get back pain relief?

Without professional help there is no easy way to get rid of back pain, There are home remedies to improve it like applying cold or heat to the painful area or using creams to relax the muscles.

How long will I have to take rest if I have lower back pain?

It depends on the type of pain. Typically, rest can be useful in acute back pain due to exercise or lifting, and usually about 2 or 3 days are enough.

How can I tell if my back pain is serious?

If it doesn’t go away quickly with medication or heat/cold, if it doesn’t let you sleep through the night, or if it is followed by other symptoms such as fever or weight loss, it’s serious. Call one of our back pain specialists as soon as possible.
