About Back Pain

Back pain can cause your brain confusion due to the fact that it can cause one area of your body to hurt when in fact it is another area of the body that is the source – far removed from the pain. This is known as referred pain. When this occurs, oftentimes the pain derives from a pinched nerve in the neck, mid-back, or lower area of the spine.

Common Symptoms

Back pain caused by referred pain or a pinched nerve can cause various symptoms including:

  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Burning

Typically, back pain can go away on its own in approximately four to five weeks. However, if the pain persists or should it radiate down the leg, it may require treatment. Schedule your consultation with Dr. Callewart should you not see a recovery or improvement from back pain after the aforementioned time period.

Types of Nerves

There are three different types of nerves. These include:

  • Sensory nerves- Senses and reports sensations from the skin to the brain
  • Motor Nerves- Controls muscle movements
  • Autonomic Nerves- Controls internal functions such as digestion, cardiac rhythm, and respiration.

Nerve Pinching Causes

Nerve pinching that leads to back pain can be a result of a slipped disc, bulging discs, herniated discs, or even a calcium deposit that can cause a bone spur to form on the nerve. In the medical field, the process of the disc joint declining is referred to as degeneration of the disc. When nerves in the middle or lower back become pinched it can manifest as:

  • Kidney pain
  • Hip pain
  • Thigh pain
  • Leg pain
  • Foot pain

Pinched nerves in the lower back can also lead to leg cramps that commonly occur at night, restless leg syndrome, difficulty balancing, difficulty urinating, or trouble walking.
