Back Pain and Its Complications:

Muscular Aches: General discomfort in the back muscles.
Shooting or Stabbing Sensations: Acute pain typically resulting from nerve involvement.
Radiating Pain: Pain that travels, often down a leg, due to conditions like sciatica.
Pain Exacerbated by Physical Activities: Movements like bending, twisting, lifting, standing, or walking might intensify the discomfort.
Additional conditions related to back pain that physiotherapy can treat include:
