What Causes Back Pain that Moves Around?

What Causes Back Pain that Moves Around?

All pain is complex – but back pain may take the cake for most complicated. Some back pain is straightforward, with a clear cause and clear treatment course. Other times, back pain can be an enigma, with no immediately apparent cause. These cases can be particularly difficult to diagnose and treat. This article will discuss back pain that changes location over time – what causes this type of pain, and how can it be treated most effectively? Read on to learn more.

Back Pain that Moves

Some patients experience back pain in the same spot every time. Others may have recurring back pain that crops up in different areas of the body. For example, a patient may initially have pain in the low back that eventually radiates down through the buttocks to the legs. This type of “mobile” back pain is often the result of a nerve issue in the spine.

When to Contact a Spine Doctor

It can be difficult to determine when to seek medical help for your pain. Many people choose to suffer through their back pain and wait for it to (hopefully) resolve itself. However, this is not a good strategy with nerve-related pain. Back pain stemming from an impacted spinal nerve will not resolve on its own over time – it will only get worse. That’s why it’s important to seek the opinion of a skilled spine surgeon as soon as possible if you are experiencing symptoms of a nerve issue – such as back pain that changes location.

If you’re experiencing back pain that changes location over time, it’s likely that a nerve issue is at the root of the issue. Spinal nerve problems need to be addressed right away to resolve symptoms and prevent permanent paralysis.
