Back pain: causes and prevention

Back pain represents a constantly growing problem, largely attributable to the modern lifestyle. It is an extremely widespread condition that can be experienced at any age and can affect anyone. Being overweight, sedentary lifestyle, poor posture, inappropriate movements, as well as anxiety and depression are some of the main causes, often associated with lifestyle habits and psycho-emotional well-being.

Other possible causes of musculoskeletal pain, both acute and chronic, include:

  • Scoliosis.
  • Muscle and tendon injuries.
  • Disc bulge and protrusions.
  • Spinal disorders.
  • Arthritis.
  • Osteoporosis.

These factors can affect normal daily function, not only of the back but also, for example, of the legs and arms.

To prevent such issues and relieve pain, it is advisable to learn proper posture and the right weight-lifting techniques. In addition, the use of posture-improving devices during work and study, along with the regular practice of physical activity, are all valuable suggestions to help preserve the health of the back.
