When we sit too long, bend awkwardly, lift weights, stand or walk long etc our back takes lot of stress. As we bend and lift an object, simply twist or even sit in poor postures, our back gradually or spontaneously develop spasms. This can further worsen leading to shape and structure of the spine being compromised later leading to disc bulge, straightening of spine,nerve compression etc. etc.
Back pain may occur due to the following activities:
- poor posture
- lifting heavy objects improperly
- sudden jerk or trauma
- strain in muscle or ligament
- structural problems such as ruptured or bulging disk, sciatica, arthritis, and abnormal spinal curve
- constant mental stress
- sedentary lifestyle weakening back muscles
- Age related muscle weakness
- Obesity and overweight
- Strenuous physical exercise (especially if not done properly)
