Back pain is a common condition. It can be acute, where the pain starts quickly but then reduces after a few days or weeks; or chronic, where the pain may last on and off for several weeks or months.
Back pain is commonly caused by a muscle, tendon or ligament strain and may arise due to factors including poor posture, and lack of exercise.
There are also other conditions including osteoporosis, spondylosis, sciatica, spinal stenosis and ankylosing spondylitis which can result in back pain.
