Back Pain Causes and Symptoms
Back pain is caused by a multitude of factors that can affect the different structures of the back including the muscles, ligaments, bones and disks. Arthritis is typically the main cause of back pain, but other causes include curvatures of the spine, sciatica, osteoporosis or a slipped disk. Less common causes of back pain include tumors, infections, cauda equina syndrome, and bad posture while sleeping.
Back pain symptoms range from mild to severe and can include any of the following:
- Muscle spasms in the lower back.
- Chronic pain in the lower or middle part of the back, particularly after standing or sitting for long periods of time.
- Aching or stiffness along the spine that doesn’t go away. It can start from the base of the neck and reach down to the tailbone.
- Sharp pain in the upper or lower back as well as the neck that remains consistent and localized.
- Pain that begins in the lower back and continues down the back of the thigh to the calf and toes, which is typically caused by sciatica.
Joint Pain Causes and Symptoms
The job of joints is to allow bones to move. Joints are located where the bones meet a part of your body, including the shoulders, hips, elbows, and knees.
Joint pain is caused by a variety of conditions, including bone cancer, a broken bone, fibromyalgia, joint dislocation, gout, lupus, Lyme disease, osteoarthritis, rickets, reactive arthritis, septic arthritis, sprains and strains, and tendinitis. Joint pain symptoms typically include general discomfort and soreness in the body’s joints.
Knee pain is one of the most common types of joint pain and fits into one of three categories, including the following:
- Injury: this could be a torn ligament, broken bone, or meniscus tear.
- Overuse that results in the following: osteoarthritis, tendinitis, bursitis, or patellar syndrome.
- Infections: Usually only found if a patient has had a cut near the area of the joint.

What is Chronic Pain?
Pain is one way the body reacts to an illness or injury. Having chronic pain in the back or joints is a warning sign that something is wrong, and that healing needs to begin for the pain to go away.
However, when the pain lasts for longer than six months, it is considered chronic pain and can provoke symptoms like anxiety and depression due to living with day-to-day pain.
The expert pain doctors at Pain Treatment Specialists treat chronic pain in the back and joints so that you can resume living a normal, pain free life.
