Back pain is a common complaint among our patients especially age 35-55 years of age, but can affect people of all ages. Most people who suffer from back pain will first visit their primary care physician seeking treatment. The spine, located in your back, is made up of a pillar of bones called vertebrae. The vertebrae are held together by muscles and ligaments. The most common cause of back pain is a strain to those muscles or ligaments. Back pain is usually not a medical emergency. If your back pain is resistant to that initial treatment, it might be time to visit the spine specialists at KureSmart Pain Management in Mt. Airy, MD.
