There is any number of reasons why you may begin to experience back pain at any stage of your life. With Covid the lack of movement has added even another level of pain and discomfort.
Some common reasons include:
Weight gain – increased pressure to the spinal column and its supporting cartilage comes when there is excessive weight to support. This is why many people experience back pain after gaining significant amounts of weight. The spine and its surrounding organs are incredibly delicate and will respond to changes and unnecessary pressure.
Pregnancy – a combination of weight gain, organ pressure, and hormonal changes in pregnant women can impact their experience of back pain. There are specific exercises and movements which can be done to relieve this.
Age – as we age, our bones lose strength and flexibility. This is why many people begin to experience pain in the back and joints later in life.
Poor Posture – living a sedentary lifestyle encourages poor posture and can have a significant impact on back pain. The more time spent in poor alignment, such as being seated hunched over at a desk or in unsupported sleeping positions, the more likely we are to experience back pain.
Keep in mind there are many reasons for back pain. Identifying the cause of your pain is the key to proper treatment. What do you think is causing you discomfort?
