Most people complain about difficulties associated with soreness around the arch of their back. The number of complaints reported by patients rank after complaints received for headaches. It is classified as acute or intense if the pain persists for almost a month. If there is a painful condition that persists for longer periods, then this is classified as chronic pain. For most people, there is a significant improvement and marked alleviation of such pain irrespective of the type of treatment resorted to. However for some the condition persists indefinitely.


Many causes lead to sore muscles or difficulty in movement. Since our backbone, or the spinal cord, is sheathed within muscles, bones, and nerves, then any injury or harm to the underlying mass surrounding the spinal cord can result in pain. Furthermore, if our viscera or the internal body organs such as the heart, lungs, abdomen, kidneys, or liver suffer any abnormality or become infected, then we might experience pain. Pregnant women have to endure pain in the back as the swollen abdomen puts a strain on the backbone.


Nerve root conditions such as herniated discs or Sciatica are also leading causes. Spinal stenosis, spinal sclerosis, fibromyalgia, osteomyelitis, spondylitis, malignant tumors, shingles, and many other diseases and disorders can result in pain affecting the lower back area. Therefore, whenever you experience a sharp, shooting pain in your back, do not waste time, and consult fully with a reliable physician or an orthopedic surgeon for a thorough diagnosis.
