How do I know if I have a spinal condition? What are the symptoms?

The most common symptom of an underlying spinal condition is some form of back pain and stiffness involving muscles. We do not ordinarily say “my 4th and 5th lumbar are hurting me”. While muscles may not actually be damaged they are the substitute for absence of actual bone pain. Another give away that there is something wrong with your spine is if you are unable to participate in activities that you once enjoyed due to pain or mobility issues. Symptoms will vary depending on the extent of the injury and may take the form of:

  • Back and/or neck pain
  • Leg, arm and/or shoulder pain
  • Gait or foot problems
  • Balance issues/dizziness
  • Mobility issues
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue/weakness
  • Neck stiffness
  • Poor concentration or memory

If you are concerned that you may be experiencing these symptoms, talk to your chiropractor. They can determine if an underlying spinal condition exists.
