What are the Causes of Back Pain?
There are many causes to back pain, an injury might be responsible but it often is a consequence of a poor posture or an awkward twisting movement, bending or reaching or a combination of these, along with inactivity, resulting in stiffness and poor flexibility. Many jobs involve repetitive movements, leading to overuse and repetitive strain injuries. Symptoms may take months, even years to develop, increasing gradually until pain hinders on everyday activities. Besides, the spine was not designed for sitting in front of a computer or behind the wheel of a car for long hours! In most cases, back pain is treated without surgery.
Back Pain Treatment and Posture
Once again to enhance you back treatment, an appropriate education about posture will be given as well as training for proper lifting, bending and sitting; for doing chores both at work and at home.
