Charlotte low back pain can keep many people from enjoying a full and active life. A common misconception is that the only workers who suffer with back pain and back injury are construction workers, warehouse workers, and anyone who works in manual labor professions. One would think that with all the financial sector and office workers in the area, that low back pain is not much of an issue for them. After all, generally their work does not require heavy lifting, climbing, bending, and high impact. The reality is that back pain is extremely common among office workers, insurance agents, customer service representatives, and bankers.
Reasons for low back pain
Low back pain can happen to people in every profession because workplace design, repetitive movement, and employee fitness are factors in every work environment. Even healthcare professionals are inclined to believe that white-collar are less likely to experience work related back or neck pain. Part of the problem is that many workers never see a healthcare professional for their low back pain. Instead, they will resort to taking over the counter pain medicine as a way to reduce the symptoms while never attempting to address the cause. If you suffer with low back pain, you are not alone. It has been documented that nearly 80 percent of adults will need treatment for work-related neck or back pain at some point in their career.
Causes of low back pain

Many sports injuries or accidents can lead to low back pain. Sometimes the simplest movements like picking up a pencil from the floor, can lead to misalignment of the spine and back pain. Other causes of low back pain can be related to poor health. Conditions such as arthritis, poor posture, obesity, stress, kidney stones, kidney infections, or bone loss can lead to pain.
