Question: What is causing my back pain?

Answer: Back pain can come from many sources, including the disk (soft material between each vertebra), joints between the bones (called facet joints), muscles, ligaments or a combination of these. Muscles are often involved in back pain and may require stretching, whereas other structures may require a different approach. If your pain is not going away, please call us at Saint Alphonsus Rehabilitation Services (STARS) 367-3315 in Boise to be evaluated and treated appropriately to get you back to your normal activities.
