Back Pain Q & A

What is back pain?

Back pain is an uncomfortable feeling in your upper, mid, or lower back. The pain could stem from problems with your spine, muscles, discs, or nerves. Earthy Ruby offers holistic (all-natural) treatments for back discomfort to help you feel better as quickly as possible. 

What does back pain feel like?

If you have a back injury, you may experience some of the following symptoms:

  • Dull, aching discomfort
  • Sharp pain
  • Shooting pain
  • Radiating discomfort
  • Muscle soreness
  • Weakness
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Burning pain
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Limited mobility

Your back pain could be mild, moderate, or severe. If it doesn’t go away with rest and at-home care, see the experts at Earthy Ruby for relief. 

What are the risk factors for back pain?

While the cause of back pain isn’t always clear, common risk factors include:

  • Herniated discs
