Back pain can have a variety of causes, and often differentiating between the causes can be difficult for the layperson. Back pain can be due to muscle strains, sprains of the joints in the spine, sprains of the joints of the pelvis, referred pain from visceral organs, nerve root compression, peripheral nerve compression, muscular tension, muscular imbalance, and inflammation among other reasons. Due to the fact that many of these conditions present in the same way to the sufferer, determining which of these is the underlying cause and which are associated symptoms requires a detailed physical examination by a trained medical professional.
Equally as diverse as the causes of back pain, are the “solutions” that may be suggested by friends or family, or can be found in internet searches. None of these solutions are universal, and a proper diagnosis is essential to finding the correct treatment protocol.
