Back pain is extremely common in people of all ages. The spine plays a crucial role in your body’s function. It helps control multiple other areas. Lower back, middle back, upper back, and neck pain can all be affected by the spine. Spinal or back pain can happen suddenly with an injury or slowly over time.
