When to see a doctor?

Most back pain is treated slowly with home treatment and self-care, usually within a few weeks. Contact your doctor if you have back pain:

  • Continuation of the last weeks
  • Difficult and at ease does not improve
  • Extend to one or both legs, especially if the pain comes below the knees
  • Cause weakness, numbness or tingling in one or both legs
  • Accompanied by unknown weight loss


The main symptom of back pain is pain or soreness of the whole back and sometimes the buttocks and legs.

Other back problems can cause pain in other parts of the body, depending on the affected nerves.

  • weight loss
  • fever
  • inflammation or swelling of the back
  • persistent back pain when lying or rest does not help
  • leg pain
  • pain reaching below the knees
  • recent injuries, bruises or back injuries


Back pain always progresses without a reason to be diagnosed by a doctor using a test or imaging study. Conditions commonly associated with back pain include:

  • Muscle or ligament tension: Repeated lifting of heavy loads or sudden poor movement can weaken the back muscles and spinal ligaments. When you are in poor physical condition, constant pressure on your back can cause painful muscle tremors.
  • Broken or broken disks: The discs act as cushions between the bones (vertebrae) of your spine. The soft material inside the disc may swell or break and stick to the nerve.
  • Arthritis: Osteoarthritis can affect the lower back. In some cases, spinal arthritis can lead to a reduction in the area around the spinal cord, a condition called spinal stenosis. Osteoporosis. Your spinal cord can cause painful fractures when your bones become porous and brittle.

Risk factors:

The following factors are associated with an increased risk of lower back pain:

  • work activities
  • pregnancy
  • sedentary lifestyle
  • poor physical health
  • age
  • obesity and overweight
  • smoked
  • hard physical exercise or work, especially if not done well
  • genetic factors
  • medical conditions such as arthritis and cancer


X-rays, MRI or CT can provide information about the condition of the soft tissues in the back.

  • X-rays may show bone alignment and signs of arthritis or bone fractures, but do not show damage to muscles, spinal cord, nerves, or discs.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging or CT scan may show protruding discs or problems with tissues, tendons, nerves, ligaments, blood vessels, muscles and bones.
  • Bone scans can reveal bone tumors and compression fractures caused by osteoporosis. The radioactive substance or indicator is injected into a vein.
  • Electromyography or EMG measures electrical impulses generated by nerves in response to muscles.
