Back pain

Back pain is a complex condition ranging from a sudden twinge to chronic and persistent pain which has a debilitating effect on a sufferer's life. There is no single cause of back pain and unfortunately there is no single cure which can make it hard for the patient to fully understand their condition.

What is Back Pain?

Any pain is a signal that all is not well and back pain is no different. Our backs are made up of a bones, muscles, nerves and joints and if we suffer from back pain something within this complex structure has become affected through everyday activities like bending or lifting or by an underlying condition like sciatica. In the medical profession, it is usual for back pain to be separated into lower back pain and upper and middle back pain, with the lower being the most common cause of everyday back pain.
