You’ll feel a lot of aches and pains throughout your lifetime. While you may go to the doctor for the ones where you think something is seriously wrong, such as with your stomach or your lungs, the aches and pains in your back may go ignored.

If the problem doesn’t improve or worsens, then surgery may be performed.
