Back Pain is one of the most common ailments that plagues humanity, second only to the common cold in work days lost.  What to do about back pain, since it has a wide range of causes and severity, can be very confusing. The first priority, however, as with any other problem in life is in identifying the cause of your back pain and developing an appropriate plan on how to fix that cause. Because, pain is your body’s alarm system, it’s not a bad thing, but a good one.  Its your body’s way of getting you to pay attention and do something about something that is not working correctly.  If you treat the effect (pain, swelling, spasm, stiffness) and not the cause of your back pain it will just keep back with more severity.  Just like that blinking warning light on your car’s dash-board or that annoying brother-in-law who lives with you.  You wouldn’t put a piece of tape over the warning light, or keep giving your spouse’s brother money without getting him to look for a job, would you?  But, that is what most people do for their back pain, they mask the pain with a drug and hope it goes away.  Heck, that’s what most medical doctors do for their patients with back pain.  Since this is a common affliction there is a lot of research done into the topic of causes of back pain, effective treatments of back pain, and back pain prevention.
