A back pain/backache indicates occupational injuries to the back, pregnancy, kidney stones, lumbago, sciatica, spondylosis, or some back disorders such as neuritis, slipped disc, etc. It can be due to sitting jobs or heavy manual jobs. Some bone-related diseases can also lead to backaches. The pain may range from mild to severe.
Most patients recover in four to six weeks. It can persist up to three months and can recur many times in a lifetime.
A backache is treated with hot or cold applications, bed rest, physical therapy and medications. If you are experiencing backache, visit a family physician of I and My Doctors Clinic today and get treated.
