Low Back PainHigh stress and low back pain

Low back pain can affect anyone, and it keeps many people from enjoying a full and active life. There is a common misconception that only people who work in strenuous or physically exerting jobs suffer with low back pain and/or back injury. We understand this better than most people because many of our clients who suffer with low back pain are accountants, bank clerks, and many of the occupations associated with the financial sector. We get our share of construction workers and others who are involved in heavy labor, so the point remains that anyone from any occupation can be the victim of low back pain.

Causes of low back pain

There are many different reasons that people experience low back pain. Low back pain can affect anyone who is even mildly active. In fact, the simplest activity or movement such as turning to speak to an office mate in the next cubicle. Sometimes the issue is simply ergonomic; for example, having your chair tilted at the wrong angle. Both examples can lead to misalignment of the spine, which in turn affects the supporting muscles, leading to mild to moderate back pain. If ignored or left untreated, mild back pain can advance to chronic, even debilitating pain. Back pain can also be related to poor general health. Consider the following conditions that can be a factor or source of low back pain:

  • Arthritis
  • Poor posture
  • Obesity
  • Stress
  • Kidney stones
  • Kidney infections
  • Osteoporosis

Back pain never corrects itself. That minor pain that is mildly uncomfortable, can become quite serious when left untreated. At the first sign of pain or soreness, it is important to schedule a visit with one of Charlotte’s best chiropractic doctors.
