Can stress cause backaches?


Stress can make you more likely to get a backache. Also, reducing stress can help you recover more quickly from a back injury. But, be careful not to blame back pain on stress, because you may be overlooking a serious cause.

It is important to see a doctor right away if:

  • Your back pain extends to the buttocks, arms, or legs
  • You have weakness or numbness in your arms or legs
  • You have any loss of bladder or bowel control
  • The pain wakes you up from sleep
