The Causes of Back Pain
The back is an intricate structure that is made up of muscles, bones, ligaments, and joints. People often strain or "pull" back muscles, sprain ligaments, irritate the joints, and rupture discs in the back, resulting in back pain. Car accidents are also a common cause of injuries that can cause back pain. Sometimes, it is a simple movement that causes pain when you didn't expect it. It can also be caused by poor posture or a gait that puts stress on the back.
Several medical problems can cause back pain. Arthritis is a common cause of this pain. It can also be caused by osteoporosis and bone loss. It can be caused by problems with the kidneys, such as infections or kidney stones, as well as by blood clots. Obesity is a major cause, as it puts more strain on the back. Some people get back pain from psychological stress.
