Back Pain


Back pain is the feeling of discomfort, aching, or burning sensation in any part of your back. The pain may be localized in the affected area or could radiate to other parts of your body like arms and legs. The main problem with back pain is it may make it hard to bend, lift things, and do normal activities that require strenuous movements. Back pain also has the risk of turning into a chronic condition if it is left untreated.

Causes & Symptoms

The cause of back pain is mostly linked to the spine and its related structures, like vertebrae, disc, nerves, and surrounding groups of muscles. An injury in any part of the spine or the back muscles could cause pain such as muscle spasm, muscle strain, weakness, stiffness, and shooting nerve pain.
