Back pain is an all-too-common ailment. Your spine and the muscles and soft tissues that comprise your back bear much of the weight and physical stress of holding your body upright and allowing you to bend, twist, and walk, which makes it vulnerable to injuries.
There are a variety of medical conditions that can lead to back pain. For example, some of the common causes of back pain include:
You can injure your back by using incorrect lifting techniques to move a heavy object or with a sudden or unexpected twist of your spine. Automobile collisions and sports accidents can also lead to back pain.
Poor posture is one of the most common causes of neck pain today. The average American spends over five hours gazing down at their phone every day, which puts a significant amount of stress on your neck.
Compounded with spending your work day slouched in front of a computer, it’s no surprise that neck pain is a prevalent complaint.
Other causes of neck pain include:
