Back Pain

Back pain is one of the most common reasons people go to the doctor, and can be caused by wear and tear, overuse or injury to back muscles, bones, nerves, or discs. The most common causes of back pain are muscular irritation and joint dysfunction.

Individuals should seek medical attention if the pain is intense and lasts longer than several days. Seek emergency medical attention if you hear a crack, are motion impaired and have headaches, numbness, weakness, or tingling.
