Back pain can be debilitating, affecting many aspects of everyday life and making even sleeping uncomfortable and difficult.
Depending on the cause, pain in the back can be felt anywhere from the neck to the hips. Lumbar pain in the lower part of the back is particularly common and often associated with incorrect lifting.
The pain is often associated with movement, or a particular posture or position. However, it is generally advisable not to immobilise the back but try to continue your daily activities as far as possible.
