What Causes Back Pain?

Muscle Strain and Sprains: Back muscle strains and sprains can be caused by overwork, bad lifting technique, or sudden moves. They are painful and uncomfortable.

Structural Issues: Nerves can get pinched by conditions like spinal stenosis, herniated discs, or swollen discs. This can cause back pain.

Poor Posture: Sitting or standing for long amounts of time with bad posture can cause muscle imbalances and stress on the spine, which can lead to back pain.

Injuries and Trauma: Back injuries from falls, accidents, or sports or other physical activities can hurt the back’s structures and cause short-term or long-term pain.
