In the United States, people visit physicians for symptoms related to back pain almost as much as they do for a common cold. While most back pain and back aches happen irregularly and are hard to diagnose, the pain or discomfort felt in the back can become a chronic problem if it is not addressed properly. Back pain can be a result of an acute injury or may be associated with a more long-term injury or illness. Muscle strain is a very common cause of back pain and can be treated with physical therapy.
