Who does back pain affect?
Back pain is one of the most common health complaints, affecting most adults at some point in their lives. Often occurring in the lower back, back pain can affect anyone at any age. Fortunately, there are many options on treating and improving back pain.
What types of back pain are there?
Most types of back pain are due to spinal issues. Although common, issues with the spine can feel extremely uncomfortable – so knowing how to treat them is key. Our Spinal Disorder Treatment and & Pain Relief guide is a handy way of identifying the problem and what appropriate treatment is needed.
For example, you may be suffering from scoliosis – a condition which affects how straight your spine is. Having a curve in your spine will alter the comfort of your back and can cause a constant pain. Unless, that is, you know how to treat it.
But there are other lesser known conditions that we need to be aware of – such as sciatica. This occurs when the sciatic nerve that runs from your feet up to your hip becomes irritated, and often painful without treatment.
What can cause back pain?
A common cause of back pain can be as simple as not having a good posture. Fortunately, your posture can be improved day by day with the right guidance.
However, back pain can be caused by an injury or an underlying health condition, resulting in a negative impact on your everyday life. Even everyday activities like getting up from a chair or finding a comfortable sleeping position can become a challenge.
