Back Pain and Marijuana Information: Treat Back Pain With Cannabis

Your spine is a column of bones (vertebrae) held together by muscles, tendons and ligaments and cushioned by shock-absorbing disks. A problem in any part of your spine can cause back pain. There are three main areas of your back where pain can originate from: upper back, middle back and lower back. Upper and middle backache is less common since the bones in this area don’t flex or move as much as the bones in your lower back or neck. They work with the ribs to keep the back stable and help protect your vital organs, heart and lungs.

Back pain is one of the most common medical problems, affecting 8 out of 10 people at some point during their lives. Back pain is one of the most common reasons people go to the doctor or miss work.

Back pain can range from a dull, constant ache to a sudden, sharp pain. Acute back pain comes on suddenly and usually lasts from a few days to a few weeks. Back pain is called chronic if it lasts for more than three months.
