Your back may be hurting for many reasons. Sitting too long, missing a step, or lifting a heavy object can twist your muscles and take a toll on your back. Eight out of ten people experience spinal pain at some point in their lives.
The good news is that 95 percent of the time, back pain will improve without medical treatment. But if your pain is severe, persistent and limiting, it’s in your best interest to see a physician and check it out.
If you experience any of the following symptoms, your back is telling you to make an appointment with an orthopedic spine specialist.
