Welcome to HCM.
Chronic back pain is quite disabling. Most common reason is muscle fatigue and spasm. Need to find out the risk factors contributing to the problem. Common risks factors are prolong sitting job, long travels and overweight. Long term solution to the problem is physiotherapy with back muscle stretching and exercise with modification of the risks factors if present.
Coming to the Treatment options. Initially we always treat with medicine and physio. If problem persist then we need to investigate further to find out the pain generator.Thanks.
