Back Pain? You Are Not Alone.

Back pain is one of the most common reasons people see a doctor or miss days at work. Almost 80% of people experience lower back pain at some point, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.

Back pain can be acute, which means it’s a short-term pain that lasts a few weeks, or it can be chronic, which continues for 12 weeks or longer. About 20 percent of people affected by acute low back pain develop chronic low back pain with persistent symptoms at one year, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.

What Causes Back Pain?

There are many things that can cause back pain, ranging from everyday activities to other health conditions.

A physical job that requires lifting, a repetitive motion, being on your feet, or a lot of physical activity can lead to pain in the back. On the other hand, if you have a job that has you sitting all day, poor posture or a chair without proper support can lead to back pain.

There are also a variety of risk factors that could make you more likely to develop back pain, including if you’re over 30-years-old (as back issues increase with age), being overweight, have mental health conditions, don’t do a lot of physical activity, or you are a smoker.

Back pain is a common aftermath of specific incidents, including a sports injury, a fall, lifting something heavy, or a car accident. If you were in a car accident or suffered from a workplace injury, the South Pointe Healthcare team is experienced in personal injury cases.

Even simple things we do every day can cause back pain, including wearing high heel shoes or improper positions for sitting, getting up and down, or picking something up off the ground. Even stress, anxiety, and depression can lead to back pain.

Some conditions that can cause back pain, include:

  • Muscle Strain or Sprain
  • Bulging or Ruptured Disk
  • Herniated or slipped disk
  • Pinched nerve
  • Disk degeneration
  • Arthritis
  • Sciatica
  • Osteoporosis
  • Scoliosis
  • Hyper-Lordosis
  • Hyper-Kyphosis
  • Spondylosis (the degeneration of the spine with normal wear and tear that occurs as people get older)

There are also non-spine related medical conditions that could cause back pain. Kidney stones, endometriosis, Fibromyalgia, and tumors can also cause back pain.
