Diagnosing Your Back Problem and Pain
Back pain comes in a number of forms. From an aching muscle to shooting pain as well as burning and stabbing sensations, back pain affects people of all ages. Some forms of back pain can also worsen when individuals lift, bend, twist, and even stand or walk. Back pain often times radiates down the leg as well. Since back pain can be quite common, it can be difficult to determine when it is necessary to consult with a back doctor. Back pain will typically improve with various types of home remedies within just a few weeks’ time. However, it that is not the case, it may be necessary to consult with a doctor if any of the following occur:

- Pain is accompanied by weight loss
