Many people who lead an active lifestyle may find it surprising when they experience back pain. But neck and back pain is more common than you think. Approximately 50% of all working Americans admit to experiencing back pain symptoms each year.
If you’re experiencing back pain, here are some of the potential causes for your symptoms and what you can do about them.
It’s recommended to see a doctor if your back pain doesn’t improve within a few weeks. In some cases, back pain could be a sign of a serious medical problem. Consult a doctor immediately if you experience back pain following a fall or injury, if you experience a fever, or if you experience new bladder or bowel problems.
If you’re experiencing back pain that isn’t caused by an underlying medical issue, physical therapy is a great way to reduce neck and back pain and to get back into your active lifestyle.
