What is back pain?
Most people will experience some kind of back pain in their life, but for those who suffer ongoing back pain, life can be crippling. It is most common in the lower back (lumbago), although it can be felt anywhere along your spine, from your neck down to your hips.
What can cause back pain?
Due to complex structure of the back, it can often be difficult to find the exact location and reason for the pain. However, back pain is most commonly caused by major strains, sprains and injuries during everyday activity, as well as when a nerve becomes pinched or irritated.
Key signs that there’s a problem:
- A swelling or a deformity in your back
- It’s constant and doesn’t ease after lying down
- It’s worse at night
- It started after an accident
