Back Pain Q&A

What is back pain?

Back pain is one of the most common reasons people seek pain management. It includes any type of pain, soreness, or stiffness in your mid or lower back that distracts you from your everyday activities.

Back pain can occur from many causes, and it’s not unusual to have flare-ups after thinking the underlying problem is resolved. Or, you may “suffer through” the pain, not realizing how it’s affecting your physical, emotional, and mental well-being.

The team at Pain Management Associates LLC understands how back pain affects life and offers an array of pain management treatments to help you get long-lasting relief.

What are some common causes of back pain?

You can develop back pain from any number of causes, including acute injuries following a car accident or bad fall or from degenerative conditions that affect the spine’s structure. 

Some of the common causes of back pain include:

  • Strains and sprains
  • Herniated disc
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal stenosis
