Back Pain

Severe or temporary low back pain may last a few days to a few weeks. Intense back pain usually results from trauma to the lower back or a disorder such as arthritis. Trauma to the back may stem from a sports injury, doing household chores or working in the garden, or a car accident. 

Symptoms include:

  • Aching to shooting or stabbing pain in the muscles
  • Restricted range of motion or flexibility
  • Incapability to stand straight  

Chronic back pain is defined as pain that continues for more than three months. Many times the pain worsens and its cause difficult to determine.
