The most common causes of Back, Neck or Leg pain

November 22, 2018

 
After suffering a slipped disc a few years ago and having to suffer the pain.
I hope never to experience back pain again.

The most common causes of Back, Neck or Leg pain:

Sciatica

Sciatica is caused by the compression and pinching of a nerve, which will likely lead to pain, weakness or tingling from the buttocks all the way down to the leg, calf and maybe even feet and toes. This was most certainly my experience.

Slipped Disc

Your vertebrae in the spine are separated by cartilage known as 'discs'. Each disc contains a 'gel' to help cushion and protect them from our daily routine and activities such as bending down, walking, running and sitting and lifting objects.

 

However, if the disc is damaged or warned down, the disc is then compromised and offers less protection. This is when you will suffer back pain etc. This is what is commonly known as slipped discs or disc bulges.
