What is Back Pain & How Can You Treat Back Pain?

Back pain is a common problem that affects most people at some point in their life. It usually feels like an ache, tension or stiffness in your back. The pain can be triggered by bad posture while sitting or standing, bending awkwardly, or lifting incorrectly.

Back pain seems to develop as you age. Back pain is more common the older you get. You may first have back pain when you are 30 to 40 years old.

Other reasons you may suffer from back pain are:

  • Poor physical fitness
  • Being overweight
  • Heredity
  • Other diseases
  • Your job
  • Smoking. Your body may not be able to get enough nutrients to the disks in your back if you smoke. Smoker’s cough may also cause back pain.

Pain from resultant lower back muscle spasms can be severe, and pain from a number of syndromes can become chronic. While lower back pain is extremely common, the symptoms and severity of lower back pain vary greatly.

By treating lower back pain also know as sciatica relief or low back pain you can get back to doing what you love each day.
