Back Pain Q & A

What is low back pain?

Low back pain refers to painful sensations that develop in the lower part of your back, which includes the area below your ribs and above your buttocks. The degree of your pain can vary depending on the underlying cause. 

While you may be able to manage your low back pain with rest and at-home treatments, if your pain is worsening or not improving with time, the team at Restoration Healthcare can devise a plan to reduce pain and improve health.

What causes low back pain?

Low back pain can develop from a range of causes. In most cases, however, the pain is due to a mechanical issue with the structures that make up your back. 

Common causes of low back pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Sprains or strains
  • Herniated disc
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Sciatica
  • Radiculopathy
  • Injury
  • Spinal deformity

You may also experience lower back pain from other underlying health conditions, such as an infection, or even cancer. 

What is neck pain?

Neck pain is also a common complaint, and refers to the discomfort you may feel in your neck, shoulders, or upper back. The pain can be dull and achy or sharp and severe. Some causes of neck pain also lead to tingling and numbness that travels down your arms and into your hands.

Like low back pain, most causes of neck pain occur due to mechanical issues that affect the structures in your neck, such as cervical stenosis, herniated disc, or whiplash.

Whether you’re experiencing neck pain, low back pain, or some other spinal pain, the team at Restoration Healthcare can devise a plan to help you get relief.
