Most people will suffer back pain at some stage of their life

There are many situations that can lead to back pain from accidents to bad posture, sudden movement or illness.

Back pain is very common and affects a wide variety of people of all ages.

Symptoms may include:

  • aching, stabbing and burning pain
  • stiffness
  • muscle spasms
  • lack of mobility
  • strong tension in the back
  • leg pain
  • numbness
  • tingling
  • buttock pain
  • weakness in the groin area

If left untreated, back pain can cause a cascade of health issues including sleepless nights, fatigue, inability to concentrate, depressed mood, and trouble completing normal duties at work.

Early intervention is important to avoid heightened pain that can become debilitating whilst also causing damage to other areas of the body as muscles try to compensate for the lack of mobility and protect the injured area.

Extra attention should be given when the symptoms of back pain are accompanied by fever, or increased pain when coughing, sneezing or bending forward.
