What causes back pain?

Back pain is a common issue that affects a significant portion of the population. It's estimated that over 80% of individuals will experience back pain at some point in their lives. It comes as no surprise then that back pain is currently the leading cause of disability worldwide. Back pain does not discriminate and can affect people of all ages and lifestyles.

At our clinic, we have seen patients from all walks of life who suffer from back pain. Whether they are physically active or lead a more sedentary lifestyle, whether they are overweight or underweight, and regardless of their height, we have encountered it all.

Our team takes great pride in utilizing our expertise to assist individuals in overcoming their back pain. The causes behind these issues can vary greatly but often involve a combination of factors such as injury, poor posture and alignment, muscle weakness, and a loss of mobility between vertebrae.

Fortunately, we have developed a personalized treatment plan designed specifically for each individual's needs. We understand that every patient is unique and requires individualized care to achieve optimal results.

How movement impacts your back and neck pain

While back and neck injuries do occur, many problems stem from poor movement, poor alignment and muscle weakness.

Understanding the impact of movement on back and neck pain is crucial. It is important to note that while injuries can contribute to these issues, many problems arise from poor movement, alignment, and muscle weakness.

In both sports and everyday life, back and neck injuries do occur. However, it is more common for these problems to be rooted in how we move our bodies and maintain proper posture and alignment while doing so.

As we grow older, we may have a solid grasp of our ABC's, but we often fall into poor sitting postures and develop unhealthy movement patterns. These habits can place significant stress on our nervous system, muscles, and spinal discs. They can also cause our hips to tighten and push our head and neck forward, throwing them out of alignment with the rest of our body.

Compromised movement patterns lead to excessive stress on the body over time. This can result in premature wear and tear that ultimately leads to back and neck pain. Furthermore, engaging in activities such as exercise or walking with compromised movements exacerbates these issues, further intensifying your discomfort.
