Is back pain causing you to move a little slower and more cautiously? If left untreated, chronic back pain can lead to long-term spinal, joint, and possibly nerve damage. Back pain is one of the most common physical complaints that people suffer from and more than 80% of the US population will experience back pain at some point in their lifetime. Back pain can interfere with your ability to bend, kneel, lift, reach, do work and enjoy time with your family. Not to mention, it can make you down right irritable and affect others around you. Why do I have Back Pain? Back pain occurs for a number of reasons but has a few simple root causes: • Weakness in the spine and core muscles of the trunk • Poor posture and strain on the spine from slouched sitting • Repetitive injury to muscles and tissues around the spine from improper lifting • Limited flexibility of the spine, hips, and muscles of the thighs • Poor coordination of the abdominal, pelvic and back muscles Most people do not seek treatment soon enough and continue to suffer from a nagging ache or pain in their back. They may even feel symptoms travel to the buttocks and legs. Many people feel that not much can be done for back pain and use medication to numb the pain to get through the day. However, medication mostly masks the pain and does nothing to address the root cause of the problem.
