Low Back Pain Q & A

Is low back pain serious?

In most cases, mechanical back pain is not a sign of a serious condition, but it may lead to other more serious conditions. In fact, low back pain affects millions of people across the United States, however, even when low back pain doesn’t stem from a serious condition, it can still be painful and even disabling. It is the second most common reason a person misses work, while some patients with low back pain even find themselves unable to work efficiently or enjoy life like they once did. FTMC carefully examines our patients to find the root of the cause and identify factors triggering the back pain to get them back to work and the enjoyments life.

What causes low back pain?

Low back pain can occur for many different reasons. For example, many patients experience back pain because they have injured the muscles in the back. In other cases, back pain may develop because the patient has a structural abnormality, such as bone spurs or scoliosis. Other possible causes of back pain include poor posture, dysfunction or immobility of the joints, bulging discs, or degenerative disc disease. From many years of expertise with spinal pain, FTMC clinicians have found that forward head posture is also a culprit of back pain.
