There are many causes of back pain, some of which are preventable. Some of the most common causes of back pain include:
Repeated spinal stress from heavy lifting
Disc degeneration due to aging
Lack of exercise, which can lead to poor core-muscle support for your spine
Obesity, which puts extra pressure on your spine
In general, back pain is more common with age. However, even children can suffer from back pain if they happen to have a sports injury or other type of accident. No matter what your age, getting prompt treatment is important if you want to get back to your life.
