Back Pain a Common Problem

Back Pain a Common Problem

Four in five people will be affected by lower back pain at some point in their lives. Most back pain will ease with rest and over-the-counter pain relievers, according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Applying cold compresses or ice for 20 minutes several times a day also may help. Talk to your health care provider if the pain doesn't ease after these self-care steps.
