Do you suffer from back pain?


Understanding back pain

Back pain is very common and usually improves within
a few weeks or months.

Pain in the lower back (lumbago) is particularly common, although it can be felt anywhere along the spine, from the neck down to the hips.

In most cases the pain caused from every day activities is not caused by anything serious and will usually get better over time. However if you are concerned about your back, you shoudl always consult your health care professional. There are some things you can do to help relieve back pain though.

But sometimes the pain can last a long time or keep coming back.


Causes of back pain

Sometimes the pain may be from an injury such as a sprain or strain, but often it happens for no apparent reason. It’s very rarely caused by anything serious, but of you have a serious injury or pain, always consult your healthcare professional.


Occasionally back pain can be caused by a medical condition such as:

  • a slipped (prolapsed) disc – where a disc of cartilage in the spine presses on a nearby nerve
  • sciatica – irritation of the nerve that runs from the pelvis to the feet


These conditions tend to cause additional symptoms, such as numbness, weakness or a tingling sensation, and they’re treated differently from non-specific back pain.

"Did you know... Low back pain probably affects around one-third of the UK adult population each year"

Symptoms of back pain

Back pain can have many symptoms, including:

  • ​a dull aching sensation in the lower back
  • a stabbing or shooting pain that can radiate
    down the leg to the foot​​
  • an inability to stand up straight without pain​​
  • a decreased range of motion and diminished
    ability to flex the back

The symptoms of back pain, if due to everday strain or misuse, are usually short-lived but can last for days or weeks. 

Back pain is chronic when symptoms have been present for longer than three months and you should always consult your doctor or healthcare professional if you are concerened about your health.

According to the Mayo Clinic, you’re at an increased risk for back pain if you:

work in a sedentary environment don’t exercise engage in high-impact activity without stretching or warming up first are older have obesity are a smoker have been diagnosed with a specific condition like arthritis
