Back Pain

About three in four adults will experience back pain during their lifetime. Low back pain (pain in your lumbar spine) is the most common. Most back pain comes from sprains and strains caused by stressful movements: lifting something without using proper techniques or a sudden twisting motion are just two examples of how you can hurt your back.

If your back pain is caused by a muscle sprain or strain, it usually heals on its own by giving it rest. Your recovery can also be helped along by modest medical attention, such as over-the-counter or prescription medications.

Sometimes back pain is caused by a more severe spinal condition, such as a herniated disc or spondylosis. Depending on the severity of your pain and its cause, you may require more involved medical help, such as physical therapy or even surgery.
