Back Pain is an extremely common health issue today. Nearly one-half of all Americans admit to having back pain symptoms each year. Back pain is one of the most common reasons for missed work. In fact, it is the second most common reason for visits to the doctor’s office (next to upper-respiratory infections). As many as 75 to 85 percent of the population will experience a back problem at some time in their lives.
What Are the Common Causes of Back Pain?
Accidents and sports injuries are the most common causes of chronic back pain. But sometimes, even simple activities or movements – like bending over to pick up an object from the floor – can trigger pain.
There are also a number of other factors that can increase your risk of back pain, such as:
- Poor Posture
- Poor physical conditioning facilitated by inactivity
- Internal disease such as kidney stones, infections, blood clots
- Psychological/ emotional stress
- Osteoporosis or bone loss
There is one common denominator among many patients who suffer from severe cases of chronic pain: sedentary lifestyle. The majority of back pain, neck pain, and other muscle pains are related to imbalanced distribution of force throughout your body, which is created by working or staying in unnatural positions for extended periods. Prolonged sitting and poor posture are major risk factors of not only back pain, but also of weight gain, obesity, joint problems, nerve problems like carpal tunnel syndrome, and other debilitating diseases.
