Back pain usually refers to pain in the area of the back, i.e. the lower back. The pain can occur in the entire width, in the middle of the back or more laterally. Sometimes, especially when the sciatic nerve is affected, the pain radiates from the lower back to the hips or legs. There are many causes of back pain: tense and overstrained muscles, signs of wear and tear on the intervertebral discs and spine, injuries or inflammation. Back pain is usually treated with painkillers. Homeopathic remedies to relieve pain can be an alternative as they do not cause side effects like medicinal painkillers.
