Back pain is a loose term referring to any complaint affecting the spine or the muscles and tissue connected to it. Common forms of back pain include lumbago, sciatica and slipped discs but back pain can also affect the neck, arms and even the legs. Lumbago affects the lower back and is the most common form of back pain. Problems affecting the spinal column also account for many cases of back pain, especially slipped discs. These occur when the cartilage that separates and cushions the bones in the spine (the vertebrae) pops out of place. Sciatica is a pain in the lower back that can be felt down the legs and is caused by nerves that have been twisted or pushed out of place.
