HSS Doctor Explains What you Need to Know About Back Pain

Paramus Daily Voice—May 17, 2016

In a recent article published by Paramus Daily Voice, Bernard A. Rawlins, MD, a spine surgeon at Hospital for Special Surgery, explains common causes of back pain, whether it is from a sudden injury or developed overtime.

According to Dr. Rawlins, "Lifting the wrong way, repetitive strenuous activities, excess body weight that puts added stress on the back, and even sitting for long periods of time can lead to back pain or make an existing problem worse."

Dr. Rawlins adds, "Anyone who experiences serious back pain for more than a couple of days should see a doctor. It is important to get a diagnosis quickly if the pain is excruciating or comes on suddenly, if it was caused by an accident, or if it radiates down an arm or leg creating numbness, tingling or weakness."
