Back pain can affect anyone and everyone irrespective of their age, or whether you are an athlete, an office worker, homemaker or all of it. The back is a complex, nerve rich structure that is prone to a wide variety of issues. Most times, the cause of back pain is more than one structure at fault, and the range of potential issues can be complex which can be broadly classified as specific & non-specific back pain. Majorly 80% of those are non-specific back pain. Good news is that physiotherapy treatment is proven to be the most effective for that.
