Symptoms of Back Pain
Back pain is a very common complaint. It tends to be what is described as 'non-specific' where there is no known cause or 'mechanical' which means that the origin of the pain is likely to be from soft tissue, joints, or individual bones centered around the spine. Lumbago, otherwise referred to as pain in the lower back is particularly prevalent. This type of pain can have an impact on the lower extremities including your legs and feet. Back pain can be felt in a number of ways including muscle aches, stabbing pain and pain that travels down your legs, often leading to reduced mobility and flexibility.
