Cause of Back Pain

Many different things can cause back pain -- after all, the pain is merely a symptom of a larger condition and not a condition in and of itself. Medical problems that can cause back pain include:
 
  • Mechanical problems
  • Injuries
  • Acquired conditions and diseases
  • Infections and tumors
  • Stress.
  •  
Once you determine the likely cause, treatment for back pain can begin. This may involve rest, medications, relaxation techniques, and in some cases, even surgery. Your healthcare provider can help you determine what is causing your back pain and suggest ways to relieve it.
