Back pain is the second most common problem presented to GP’s. About 80% of people are affected by back pain at some point in their lifetime. Lower back pain can affect anyone at any age, but lifestyle differences can play a large role.
Back pain can be a result of injury, inflammation or irritation of any of the structures of your back including bones, joints, discs, muscles, ligaments and tendons. Pins and needles or numbness may also accompany back pain depending on the severity.
