The spine is a highly complex and critical component of the human body, protecting the spinal cord while offering strength, structure, and flexibility.
The spine's ability to provide support and mobility simultaneously makes it more susceptible to injury.
Since spine injuries can affect virtually any body part, there is a wide range of conditions and injuries encompassed by spine pain, thereby causing a wide range of symptoms.
From scoliosis and stenosis ro sciatica and herniated discs, spine pain can be the result of a serious condition.
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms of spine pain, it's important to seek treatment as soon as possible before your spine injury or conditions worsens:
- Sharp pain in the lower back
- A popping noise or feeling in the back after straining or heavy lifting
- Numbness, tingling, or cramping in one or both legs
- Weakness in a specific area of the leg or arm
- Loss of balance when walking
