Understanding Symptoms of Back Pain

Back injuries can be pretty obvious, but symptoms can go beyond general pain or discomfort in the lower, mid, or upper back. Taking note of the full extent of your symptoms is critical to successful healing. You might experience:

  • Pain that goes away when you lie down
  • Constant aching of different back muscles
  • Pain that shoots down your leg
  • An inability to get comfortable in any position
  • Tingling or numbness in your legs
  • Bowel or bladder issues
  • A fever

Causes of Back Pain

To the patient, back injuries can cause excruciating pain that is often debilitating. As your healthcare provider, Dr. Ledoux goes beyond the general symptoms to determine the cause of your specific affliction for the most effective treatment.


Most patients' back pain is mechanical, caused by a spinal injury, damage to soft tissues, or intervertebral disc problems.


Degenerative pain is likely from compression fractures, joint osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, or degenerative disc disorder.


Certain conditions, such as sacroiliitis or ankylosing spondylitis, cause inflammation in joints and ligaments around the spine.


Cancers and tumors can damage the spine, lead to pinched nerves, or affect the bone marrow in the spine.


Other causes of back pain are spinal infections, sores from epidural administration, and ulcers of the muscular tissue.
