We regularly treat patients who are suffering from acute or chronic back pain. But why is back pain such a common complaint? And is there a definitive answer?
There are many contributory factors that can lead to back problems developing, many of which are often preventable. Being overweight, physically unfit and having weak back or abdominal muscles can enhance the risk of the onset of back pain. Smoking can also jeopardise the body’s ability to provide nutrients to the discs in the spine. Other common reasons for chronic or acute back pain may include sitting down for too long (think about how many hours a day an office worker sits at their desk!), poor posture and lifting in the wrong positions. Even emotional stress can be a culprit!
Of course, there are also many medical causes of back pain and it’s important that you seek professional advice for your own specific case.
