Causes of Back Issues
Back pain can be caused by several factors. Your own back pain can be the result of just one cause or multiple. For instance, if you're involved in a car accident the impact can shock the vertebrae of your spine and also bring about muscle strain in your back.
Another cause of back pain is poor posture. If you sit or lay down in a slouched or awkward position for a long period of time, poor posture can become a habit and cause you pain over time. Some people are more susceptible to problems with their posture if they have excess curvature in their spines.
Stress leads to tension in muscles. When muscles in the back tense up due to physical or emotional stress, it can also lead to back pain. The trapezius muscle is the most commonly affected area and it brings about chronic tightness that a chiropractor can loosen up.
Herniated or bulging spinal discs are notorious for causing back pain. The spine is a complex and tightly packed structure. Any abnormality, such as a herniated disc, can cause problems such as a pinched nerve, which leads to back pain.
