Take a look at our guide to some of the most commonly asked back pain questions.

Back and Active Training have experience in dealing with various medical conditions which are known to cause back pain.

  • A prolapsed or slipped disc This is when a cartilage disc in your spine presses against a nerve causing numbness, back pain, tingling sensations and also other body parts to feel weak.
  • Sciatica Which is when the nerve connecting your lower back to your feet becomes irritated. This not only causes pain, numbness and tingling but also can make the lower back, buttocks, legs and feet all feel weaker.
  • Ankylosing spondylitis This is when the joints in your spine swell causing pain and stiffness. The pain can feel better with movement and will feel worse when you initially wake up.
  • Spondylolisthesis Which is when a bone in the spine slips out of position. The effects of spondylolisthesis include stiffness and pain in the lower back plus tingling and numbness.
Back Pain Conditions

The cause of back pain is not always easily indentified but it's rarely anything serious.

The most common type of back pain occurs with no obvious cause and is known as non-specific or mechanical back pain. Although still painful they are not usually anything serious. The pain can come from your bones, joints and also the soft tissues close to and inside your spine.

Examples of non-specific back pain include:

  • Pain which can feel better or worse depending on the position you are in. (Sometimes the pain will subside when you sit or lie down).
  • Pain that generally gets worse when you move. (You should never totally stop moving your back as not moving at all can cause more damage).
  • Pain that comes on either gradually or suddenly.
  • Pain which is caused by poor posture or because you have lifted something incorrectly. (sometimes there can appear to be no apparent reason for this pain).
  • Minor injury pain including pulled muscles/muscle strain or pulled ligaments/ligament sprains.
  • Pain which comes on when you are feeling run down or stressed.
  • Pain that gets better without needing treatment within a few weeks.
