Back pain or backaches is the pain felt in the back that may create from muscles, nerves, bones, joints or other structures in the spine. Back pain is one of the most ordinary medical problems experienced by most people at some time in their life. Back pain can be acute, generally lasting from a few days to a few weeks or chronic, lasting for more than three months.
Back pain can happen as a dull, constant pain or a sudden, sharp pain. Back pain may be confined to one area or may radiate to other areas such as the arm and hand, the upper back, or the lower back and might radiate into the leg or foot. Other than pain, you may have weakness, numbness or tingling in your arms or legs, reason from damage to the spinal cord.
