Even though the cause of back pain isn’t always clear, most symptoms of back pain originate in the working muscles of the back. Damage to these muscles can be caused by sudden falls, car accidents, or muscle overuse. Regardless of the cause of the pain, the pain management techniques that doctors use to alleviate the symptoms will be similar.
If you are experiencing back pain, one of the most important things you need to learn is when to seek medical treatment. Depending on the severity of your symptoms and the length of time you have been living with these sensations, you may require emergency treatment from a spine specialist. This video lists the painful symptoms that signal the need for medical care.
