Back Pain Treatment


Back pain refers to discomfort or soreness felt anywhere along the spine, from the neck down to the lower back. Back pain can range from mild to severe and may be acute or chronic.


Common symptoms include stiffness, muscle tension, sharp or shooting pain, limited mobility, and discomfort that worsens with movement or prolonged sitting or standing.


Back pain can be caused by different factors, including muscle strain, injury, poor posture, structural problems (such as herniated discs or arthritis), and underlying medical conditions like osteoporosis or scoliosis.
