Sports Related Injury – Back Pain

Sports Related Injury – Back Pain - Symptoms

What can you not do?

Back pain can be associated with pain in the lower back, buttocks and sometimes, can also include symptoms in the legs and feet. It is best to avoid activities that worsen the back pain which may include heavy lifting, running or jarring sports activities as well as prolonged sitting or standing.

In rare cases, back pain can signal a serious medical problem. Seek immediate care if your back pain is associated with new bowel or bladder symptoms (i.e. difficulty going or inability to control urine or bowel motion) or if the back pain follows a fall or trauma. Contact your doctor if you have back pain that worsens at night, is associated with leg pain, weakness, or numbness, unexplained weight loss, fevers or abdominal pain.
