Most of us experience back pain every once in awhile. Even so, we have the tendency to brush the pain off, assuming that it is just a temporary discomfort. However, back pain can sometimes be so intense that we cannot help but seek medical attention for it. Finding out the root cause of the pain is vital in determining the right treatment.

He also notes that people who are stressed, depressed or having back injuries are more likely to develop a chronic back pain.
