What causes back pain?
Some people are told their back pain is “idiopathic,” meaning it has no clear underlying cause. In other cases, through a physical exam, patient history, and imaging studies, a clear diagnosis can be made, such as muscle strain, joint subluxation, stenosis, radiculopathy, sciatica, disc herniation/bulge, and osteoarthritis.
