A Closer Look at Some Back Pain Causes

When your back hurts; it can be a miserable experience and it may happen for a variety of reasons. Because we are spending such a large amount of time stooped over our computers presently; we are experiencing more back strain. Exercise is always a great addition to a lifestyle, but without being done correctly it may cause back issues.

Let's look more closely at these and other typical causes of back pain.

One of the surprising causes of back pain is sitting for too long. Moreover, the chair in which you are sitting, even if it isn't comfortable, isn't necessarily the problem. Just sitting too long can cause back problems. The fact is, sitting down puts a lot more pressure on your back than standing or walking. This makes it easy to understand why office workers suffer such a high percentage of back pain. For this reason, some people and businesses are switching to stand-up style desks. There are other benefits to sitting less, as well. Research has reported that if you spend less time seated, you will be healthier. You may not want to stand and work, or you don't have an adjustable desk. If so, take frequent breaks and walk around. You back will enjoy the change if you just get up, walk around, stretch, and then go back to work.

Do you carry a briefcase or laptop with you? If you do, it is possible that the weight from this object or device may be causing the back pain that you are suffering from. Sometimes it's not only the weight you're carrying, but the way it's distributed. People that have heavy purses that carry them on one side more than the other are susceptible to this kind of injury. You could carry something smaller or make it lighter. If you're going on a vacation, or a business trip, always use a bag that rolls. This will be much easier on your back if you're able to roll your heavy items, including bags and suitcases or anything else that you habitually take with you.

If you suffer from other illnesses, you may find that one of the side effects is back pain. Diabetes is a good example because it can result in back pain, as well as pain in other regions of the body. Diabetes weakens the immune system and can result in neuropathy - a form of nerve damage. Neuropathy can affect different areas of the body - for example, feet are susceptible to neuropathy - but the back is also often affected. If you are diabetic, it is imperative that you have a good plan in place to monitor your blood glucose level and keep it in the range recommended by your medical team. Neuropathy - nerve damage and pain - can usually be averted in this case. Another double-edged sword in the fight against diabetes is weight control. Not only will this aid in keeping your diabetes under control, it can also relieve your back pain.

There are many reasons why someone may suffer from back pain and, sometimes, it isn't even possible for a medical doctor to ascertain the exact cause of someone's problem. If you pull a muscle chopping wood, for example, or lifting weights, you will know why you have back pain the next morning. Other times, the pain may arrive and the precise cause isn't apparent. Many different situations can lead to back pain. We've only addressed a few in this report.
