Nearly every adult in the world has experienced back pain at some point during his or her lifetime. When the pain hits you it is a far cry from fun. What is really causing that back pain? In many cases, back pain doesn’t actually begin in your back. So where
does it start? Take a look at a few options that could be responsible for your back pain.
Do You Spend Most of Your Day at a Desk?
Prolonged sitting compresses the spine and increases stress on the back, legs, arms and even neck. To prevent back pain resulting from long periods of sedentary behavior, try setting an alarm or reminder you to move around every hour. You can also use an ergonomic chair, mouse pad, and keyboard in your work space to further benefit your health.
Do YOU Have Text-Neck?
In our modern world, everywhere you look, people are looking down at their cell phones or tablets. Too much of this downward tilt can cause pain in your neck from over stretching tissue and muscles. This can lead to spinal misalignment. Teenagers and younger children face the highest risk for suffering from symptoms of text-neck. Back pain is a compensation reaction, with the real issue being the neck.
Do You Carry a Heavy Brief Case or Purse?
Misaligned hips often begin as a result of a weak back, core or pelvis muscles and uneven shoe wear. Frequently carrying a heavy item to one side, poor posture and not wearing supportive shoes can all contribute to hip misalignment leading to low back pain.
