What is Back Pain?

Back pain is an umbrella term that could label as many different conditions.
The pains can range in their intensity and also their appearance. Do you suffer from any of the following types of pain around your spine, or stemming from your back?  
  • Achy
  • Sharp
  • Shooting
  • Burning
  • Numb
  • Tingling
  If so, then you can safely say you have back pain.   The structures can be Nerve based (see 'what is sciatica'), Muscle based, Joint based, Connective tissue or swelling.   The causes can be as far ranging from falls as a child to car accidents or even becoming a 'desk jockey'.

What is Sciatica?

Sciatica is actually a nerve pain. The nerve in question is....the Sciatic nerve. It runs from your lower back all the way to your toes. Sometimes you may feel the pain travel and it can be;
  • Shooting
  • Sharp
  • Burning
  • Tingling
  • Cramping.
 
It is usually caused by wear and tear o the bones or in some cases, a bulging disc. The latter is severe acute pain which can be noticed more if you cough sneeze (or go to the loo and have to strain!)   Typically, it only effects one side - but left for long enough and it can begin to effect both sides.
