Some common causes of back pain are:
- Bulging & herniated discs - nearly half of all adults have at least one and most do not know it.
- Sprains, strains & spasms - occurs most often in athletes and those who overdo their activity.
- Misaligned vertebrae - due to an accident, improper lifting, alcohol, or long periods of sitting.
- Stress - can create chronic muscle tension and poor posture.
Symptoms of back pain include:
- Persistent aching or stiffness anywhere along your spine, from the base of the neck to the hips.
- Sharp, localized pain in the neck, upper back, or lower back -- especially after lifting heavy objects or engaging in other strenuous activity.
- Chronic ache in the middle or lower back, especially after sitting or standing for extended periods.
- Radiating pain - that extends from the low back to the buttock, down the back of the thigh, and into the calf and toes.
- Inability to stand straight without having severe muscle spasms in the low back.
