Ouch! What Causes Back Pain?


When I was younger, every time I hear my mom complaining about having back pain, I always tell her that it's natural as she is getting old. But right now, I cannot say that I am getting old already (hehehe.. :-P) yet occasionally I have back ache. I know sitting in front of the computer for more than 8 hours makes my back ache that sometimes it is hard for me to stand. At the end of the day, it is always my complain of having back pain. Aside from sitting for a long time, there are other causes of back pain.

a. Lifting something heavy and overstretches the back will cause a sprain and strain to the muscles or ligaments in the back.
b. As one ages, the bone strength and muscle elasticity decrease. The discs in between the joints become thin so the cushioning effect also decreases which will cause pain every time there is movement.
c. Poor physical condition and health lifestyles can cause back pain. Obesity, smoking, stress triggers pre-existing pain. Bad posture and sleeping position are also contributors to back pain.
d. People with degenerative illness like arthritis, osteoporosis and other bone diseases are more prone to back pain. 

Back pain is a common problem, however, it is important to consult a doctor is the pain is too much to bear or if it persists for long time.

I have started to have back pain and it seems to get worse by the day. I have found that stretches in the morning seem to help as well as wearing good quality shoes.
My 2 cents.

Back pain is quite a handicap to doing anything active. However, the secret to avoiding back pain is regular exercise and good posture.

If you sit at a computer all day- get up at least once an hour and have a really good stretch, do some dips, crunches and press ups if you can, as well.

Chronic back pain is not natural and can be treated. Some back pain is normal form time to time. If you are having back pain that persists it may be caused by a misaligned spine, bad shoes or unnecessary strain. Taking pills will not help. If you have consistent back pain, you should see a good chiropractor or massage therapist.

I used to have back aches all the time, as I have worked in an office chair on the computer for years. I try to get up every few ours and stretch out and if I can't get up I will just stretch in my chair. This seems to really help with my back, as I don't seem to have the pain anymore.

There are many causes of back pain as you mentioned. The most common being sitting with a poor posture. When you sit in a slouched position your lower back is effectively in a 'flexed' position. This has a similar effect as bending over for 4 hours straight, naturally your back will get sore. Its amazing how easy this is to fix. Grab a round pillow or rolled up towel and place in your lower back. This will force you to sit with your lower back in a nautral position and your back pain should ease!
