Back pain is one of the most common medical problems in the United States. It can range from a dull, constant ache to sudden, sharp pain. Sometimes it can come on suddenly – from an accident, a fall, or lifting something heavy, or it can develop slowly because of age-related degenerative changes to the spine. In some cases, inflammatory disorders or other medical conditions will cause back pain.
