Back Pain

Back pain is one of the most common reasons people go to the doctor or miss work, and it is a leading cause of disability worldwide.

Fortunately, you can take measures to prevent or relieve most back pain episodes. If prevention fails, simple home Back Pain Treatment and proper body mechanics often will heal your back within a few weeks and keep it functional. Surgery is rarely needed to treat back pain.


Back pain can range from a muscle aching to a shooting, burning or stabbing sensation. In addition, the pain may radiate down your leg or worsen with bending, twisting, lifting, standing or walking.

When to see a doctor

Most back pain gradually improves with home treatment and self-care, usually within a few weeks. Contact your doctor if your back pain:

  • imagePersists past a few weeks
  • imageIs severe and doesn't improve with rest
  • imageSpreads down one or both legs, especially if the pain extends below the knee
  • imageCauses weakness, numbness or tingling in one or both legs
  • imageIs accompanied by unexplained weight loss

In rare cases, back pain can signal a serious medical problem. Seek immediate care if your back pain:

  • imageCauses new bowel or bladder problems
  • imageIs accompanied by a fever
  • imageFollows a fall, blow to your back or other injury


Back pain often develops without a cause that your doctor can identify with a test or an imaging study. Conditions commonly linked to back pain include:

  • imageMuscle or ligament strain
  • imageBulging or ruptured disks
  • imageArthritis
  • imageOsteoporosis

Risk factors

Anyone can develop back pain, even children and teens. These factors might put you at greater risk of developing back pain:

  • imageAge
  • imageLack of exercise
  • imageExcess weight
  • imageDiseases
  • imageImproper lifting
  • imagePsychological conditions
  • imageSmoking


You might avoid back pain or prevent its recurrence by improving your physical condition and learning and practicing proper body mechanics.

To keep your back healthy and strong:

  • imageExercise
  • imageBuild muscle strength and flexibility
  • imageMaintain a healthy weight
  • imageQuit smoking

Avoid movements that twist or strain your back. Use your body properly:

  • imageStand smart
  • imageSit smart
  • imageLift smart
Buyer beware

Because back pain is so common, numerous products promise prevention or relief. But there's no definitive evidence that special shoes, shoe inserts, back supports, specially designed furniture or stress management programs can help.

In addition, there doesn't appear to be one type of mattress that's best for people with back pain. It's probably a matter of what feels most comfortable to you.
