Back pain

Back pain can occur in neck, middle back or lower back. There are multiple causes for this pain which can be bone or muscle conditions. For example, continued contraction of back muscles due to prolonged maintenance of a single posture; injury to joints of the vertebra; slippage of the disc present in the vertebral column; trauma or a tumour impinging on nerves in the region. The cause is identified by clinical examination and imaging and treated by an orthopaedic surgeon or chiropractor accordingly.
