Back pain

Back pain

Back pain can be very frightening and very debilitating but 70% of cases are caused from lumbar spine strains or sprains. The most important aspect of management is getting good pain medication and continuing to be active as much as possible. Gone are the days where the advice was to remain in bed. The NHS web site has some good information - http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Back-pain/Pages/Introduction.aspx
