Back pain is a common problem that affects most people at some point in their life. It may be caused by bad posture while standing or sitting, bending awkwardly, or lifting incorrectly. It’s not normally caused by a serious condition.
Pain in the lower back (lumbago) is particularly common, although it can be felt anywhere along the spine – from the neck down to the hips. Estimates suggest that 80% of people in the developed world will have experienced at least one bout of lumbago or lower back pain in their lives.
Products such as Lloyd’s Cream can be very useful in relieving a bad back. Similarly, supplements such as Devil’s Claw can also help.
