Common Causes of Back Pain

Pain in any part of our body is our body’s way of telling us that there is a problem and that we need to tend to it. If you happen to have pain in your back, then there is no, one standard course of action that needs to be taken. This is because there are a number of different reasons and causes behind back pain, so just determining the location of the back pain is not enough, you also need to be able to identify the potential cause of the pain so that you are able to show it to a back pain specialist and get it treated properly. So, we have listed a few common reasons behind back pain so that you have a general idea.

  • If you have recently had a bad fall or some sort of physical trauma like an injury, it can end up affecting your back, resulting in back pain.
  • Having bad posture can cause back pain. This is because you end up straining your spine, your neck and soft tissues when you are hunched and looking forward, and this overtime ends up weakening the muscle and causing the normal muscle that supports the neutral alignment of your spine to weaken overtime.
  • If you happen to be lift heavy objects or weights, and are not doing it correctly, like not keeping your spine aligned, leaning more towards one side than the other and so on, then you will end up with back pain, if not immediately, then overtime.
  • If you suddenly spend a day or more overusing your back by lifting heavy objects and moving and dragging things around, then the overuse and sudden stress on your back can result in back pain that can end up lasting a couple of days.
