Who Can Suffer from Back Pain?

Sadly, anyone can have some sort of back pain, but there are certain factors that increase your chances. If you have poor physical fitness or are overweight, you will be susceptible to back pain. This lack of activity and extra weight can add a lot of stress to your spine. If you sit at a desk all day with improper posture, or frequently lift and pull at your job, then you might have a higher risk of pain. It is also possible to experience back pain simply because you’re getting older or you have a genetic predisposition toward poor spinal health.

What Causes Back Pain?


Back pain can come from a multitude of places, from specific problems with the back, to injuries, to certain diseases and conditions. There might be a ruptured disc or tense muscles causing the pain, but it could also result from an accident, fall, or sprain. Conditions like scoliosis, arthritis, and fibromyalgia can also cause back pain. If you suffer from one of these, look into different options, such as scoliosis or arthritis treatments.

What Treatments are Available for Back Pain?

The best thing you can do is maintain a consistent exercise routine with a healthy weight. Use your best posture and practice safe habits when lifting or bending. If your pain persists, consider seeing a doctor. Chiropractors are dedicated to correcting spinal problems, as well as many other aspects of the body and a patient’s lifestyle. Chiropractors and other specialists can suggest various forms of noninvasive treatments and exercises to help prevent your pain from becoming worse.
