Common Back Injuries
Back pain can be referred to as pain felt in any part of the back from upper, mid, to lower back with low back being the most common complaint. Back pain is often caused by overuse, lifting heavy objects, sleeping wrong, but can also be caused by more serious issues like a herniated or slipped disc, sciatica, or dysfunction of the SI joint.
