Understand Kidney Pain


Your kidneys are located at the back of your abdomen, just under your rib cage, on each side of your spine. 

Kidney pain and back pain can be difficult to distinguish, but kidney pain is usually deeper and higher in the back while muscle pain with common back injury tends to be lower in the back.





However, having pain in your back or sides does not necessarily mean there is something wrong with your kidneys. 

It is possible to have pain on only one side, if only one kidney has a problem, or both sides if both kidneys are affected.




Kidneys drain urine to the bladder via tubes called ureters. Your bladder is emptied via the urethra.

Problems in any of these areas can cause pain



Treatment depends on the cause, the severity of the pain and how sick you are feeling.

You may find the pain eases with simple treatments like paracetamol. However, If you have pain that you are worried may be caused by a kidney problem, please see a healthcare professional.



Centre Medicale International, CMI, offers consultation, diagnosis and appropriate treatment for your back pain.
