Back pain (soreness or ache) that follows activity (often the lies of lifting or twisting) is often muscular pain. However, if you experience pain that comes on suddenly or doesn’t lessen after a few days, there is a chance it could be something more serious. In this instance it’s important to see a healthcare professional. A private rheumatologist can quickly diagnose any underlying conditions to give you peace of mind and get you back on your feet again as quickly as possible.
