- Numbness or weakness in your back and limbs
- Problems with going to the bathroom
- Unexplained weight loss
- Pain after an accident
Causes of Back Pain
Back pain can be caused by many things including injuries or accidents, lifestyle habits, obesity, illnesses or diseases, or from everyday activities resulting in a muscle or ligament strain. Common conditions we see that cause back pain are herniated discs, spinal stenosis, disc displacement, and degenerative disc disease. Back pain risk factors include: lack of regular exercise, obesity, diabetes, tobacco use, improperly lifting heavy objects and psychological conditions such as depression.
