Back pain is incredibly common and can cause a lot of discomfort and suffering. If you are experiencing back pain, it could be for a number of different reasons. It is therefore important to seek treatment for the pain as well as identify the possible underlying cause(s).
- Poor posture
Sitting behind a desk staring at a computer all day can cause problems with your back. Similarly, looking at a mobile phone constantly or driving for a long period of time can trigger pain. It is important to take regular breaks away from your screen as well as ensure your chair is correctly positioned and providing adequate back support.
- You are suffering from stress
Stress is a common culprit of back pain. It can lead to feelings of tightness due to knots and may also cause spasms. If you suspect you are stressed then it is important to try and address the source of this as well as make time for some relaxation exercises which can help to ease the pain you are feeling.
- There are problems elsewhere
A sore back may be symptomatic of problems in another part of your body. As different parts of the body are all connected, when there is a problem with one area this can lead to pain in others which are either unsupported or having to work harder than normal to maintain balance or posture. If this is the case it is important to identify the problem area and treat this is order to restore overall good physical health.
