along the sciatic nerve, butt, and leg. Most back pain
can be diminish through the use of physical therapy or massage
therapy. Though the healing time can be upwards of 6 months,
or even years, but this depends upon the damage. In the case
of injury, to the spine such as sprains and fractures can cause

of osteoporosis, a condition that causes weak, porous bones. Less
commonly, back pain may be caused by more severe injuries that
result from accidents and falls.
