    Do you have back pain? Here are some tips to help you cope from Statcare Urgent Care Doctors.

    About 80% of people have at least one episode of low back pain during their lifetime. Factors that increase the risk of developing low back pain include smoking, obesity, older age, physically strenuous work, sedentary work, a stressful job, job dissatisfaction and psychological factors such as anxiety or depression.

    A common feature of low back pain is radiculopathy, which occurs when a nerve root is irritated by protruding disc or arthritis of the spine. Sciatica refers to the most common symptom of radiculopathy. It causes a sharp or burning pain that extends down the back or side of the thigh, usually to the foot or ankle. It is associated with tingling and numbness. Occasionally, sciatica may be associated with muscle weakness in the leg or the foot.
