Back pain originates from the muscles, nerves, bones, joints or other structures in the spine. About nine out of ten adults experience back pain at some point in their life, and five out of ten working adults have back pain every year.
The pain can often be divided into neck pain, upper back pain, lower back pain or tailbone pain.
Upper back pain, also called middle back pain, pain that is felt between the bottom of the neck and top of the lumbar spine. Neck pain is a common problem, with two-thirds of the population having neck pain at some point in their lives.
Lower back pain ( lumbago) is a common symptom of musculoskeletal disorders or of disorders involving the lumbar vertebrae and related soft tissue structures such as muscles, ligaments, nerves and intervertebral discs.
Coccydynia is a medical term meaning pain in the coccyx or tailbone area, usually brought on by sitting.
