Back Pain

What is Back Pain?

Back pain is a very common complaint. About three in four adults will experience back pain during their lifetime, and that number may very well rise, given our aging population and recent trend of obesity. Most back pain comes from sprains and strains caused by stressful movements for example like lifting something without using proper techniques or a sudden twisting motion.

If your back pain is caused by a muscle sprain or strain, that usually heals on its own and you will just need to give it time. Your recovery can also be helped along by modest medical attention, such as over-the-counter or prescription medications.

It can have many underlying reasons, but often no specific cause will be found and the pain will stop. This chapter will review many of the causes of back pain and proper evaluation and diagnosis. Please be sure to discuss your individual symptoms as well as the suggested treatments with your health-care professional to determine the appropriate diagnostic and treatment plan for your circumstances.

Sometimes, though, back pain is caused by a more severe spinal condition, such as a herniated disc or spondylosis . Depending on the severity of your pain and its cause, you may require more involved medical help, such as physical therapy or even surgery.

Prevention of Back Pain

  • While standing, keep your head up and stomach pulled in
  • To avoid putting stress on the back, chairs should swivel and have adequate lower back support
  • Find comfortable sleeping mattress for each individual
  • If you attempt to lift something, keep your back straight up and down, head up, and lift with your knees. Keep the object close to you, don’t stoop over to lift. Tighten your stomach muscles to keep your back in balance

Sign of Back Pain

  • Persistent aching or stiffness along your spine
  • Sharp pain in the back after lifting heavy objects or strenuous activity
  • Aching in the middle or lower back after sitting or standing for extended time
  • Pain or numbness radiates down from the lower back to the toes

Types of Back Problem


Self-Diagnose can bring more harm than treating it. It is good to know more about the injury but definitely not to the point of self-treatment. It will be much safer to get treated by Our Doctor, for more information or to book an appointment with Singapore Sports and Orthopaedic Clinic, you can call (+65) 6471 2691, the hotline is open 24 hours.
