How physiologically does pain radiate through the nerves?

Pain travels from a position to another. That happens through the sensitivity of the nerves.For example: 'Mid back pain radiate' is faster since a bundle of nerves pass through your spinal chord. The prostaglandins produced due to muscle spasms or strains cause heating effects on the site of the pain.
