What Causes Back Pain?
Back pain can show up suddenly as a result of an accident or other incident. Auto accidents, trip and fall accidents, slip and fall accidents, sports accidents, and on-the-job accidents are all common reasons that patients seek help for back pain at chiropractors.
Back pain can also develop over a long period of time. Work that requires heavy lifting puts strain on the back and can cause chronic back pain over time. Poor sitting or standing posture can also contribute to back pain.
Finally, other medical conditions like disc degeneration, osteoarthritis, congenital spine disorders such as spina bifida, vertebral stenosis, and scoliosis can also cause back pain.
