Back pain is a very common problem in today’s society. Most often it is a benign condition. However, some people could develop more disabling and frequent attacks of back pain, and at times it could be a sign of danger.
Cause of lower back pain
Often patients start with infrequent episodes of back pain, occurring once or twice a year. With time the frequency and duration of pain could increase to the point of having daily pain; often this type of pain is caused by weakening of back muscles, causing the spine to loose its support, and small amounts of stress on the back will induce back pain.
In addition to the back pain some patients develop shooting pains that radiate into the legs. This could be a sign that the nerves are getting compressed and damaged which could lead to weakness, paralysis, or numbness of the legs.
Back pain at times could be caused by a dangerous disease process including tumors and infections. Back pain in association with fevers, weight loss, loss of control of urine or bowl movements, rapid paralysis of the legs, or in patients who are known to have cancer, could be a sign of danger.
