Back-ache or pain is one of the most commonly prevalent complaints, more especially in women. Many back pains have no immediately obvious cause.

Type of Back Pains

The facet joints linking one vertebra to the next one can also be damaged or strained.

  1. Lumbago: A pain in the lower or lumbar region of the back. It is a degenerative problem.
  2. Fibrositis: Inflammation of the muscles supporting the back. It is also known as 'trigger point' phenomenon.


In most cases back-ache is due to :

  • Strained ligaments
  • Painful muscle spasm
  • Inflammation caused by bad posture
  • Lifting heavy loads in incorrect way
  • Sudden strain through twisting
  • Inadequate support like poorly crafted seats, work tables or too soft mattresses
  • Emotional problems..

Signs & Symptoms

  • Pain is experienced generally either in the middle of the back or the lower region.
  • Pain radiates towards both sides of the waist and the hips.
  • In acute stage, the patient is bedridden arid unable to move.
