Back Pain Explained By Dr Allan Wattenmaker – Medical Minute Interviews
Understanding Back Pain
Dr. Allan Wattenmaker was recently interviewed about back pain. Here’s what he had to say.
Back pain, we are all familiar with it. Whether suffering from it ourselves or knowing somebody that has. Back pain has affected nearly 65 million Americans, but what is it, and what are the causes?
The cause of back pain can be difficult to identify. It can be from a motor vehicle accident, a work related incident, working out, or something as simple as getting dressed in the morning. Whatever the cause, it can be debilitating.
Back pain comes in many shapes and sizes, with varying signs and symptoms. A person can experience that deep, sharp electric pain that travels down the legs and they just can’t get into that comfortable position. Some state it’s a dull throbbing toothache sensation in the back. Regardless of your symptomatology, it’s a real pain in the back.
