There are Times when You Must Consult a Doctor for Back Pain

There are a few instances in which consulting a doctor for back pain is absolutely necessary, including: sudden, severe pain without a history of falls or other trauma, weak or numb legs, or a loss of bladder or bowel control.

Why does your back hurt?

Standing upright requires the spine to support the weight of the upper body while remaining flexible enough to bend in many directions. The back’s complex set of bones, muscles and ligaments get a workout every time you move. Disks between the bones intended to cushion movement can slip, bulge or press on spinal nerves causing pain. Plus, disks wear and shrink as we age. If you have back pain, a good neuromuscular massage can help relieve the pain and restore your flexibility.
