Back pain might either be caused due to muscle strain, poor posture, a fall on the back or a previous history of spinal problem. Even psychological factors like depression, anxiety, excessive stress or job dissatisfaction can play a major role in eliciting back pain. The condition is most prevalent in people aged 35 to 55 years. Back pain may either be sudden and intense or persistent and dull and can last for a week to a month. Patients may experience symptoms like soreness and stiffness of back muscles that aggravates while trying to move or even cough or sneeze.
