Causes of Back Pain
Fact, over 80% of the population in western countries suffer from back pain in some form or another. It is often diagnosed as muscle strain, which is damage caused to the muscle when it is stretched or torn. This usually happens when someone lifts something that is too heavy for them, or lifts it improperly.
Back pain can be the result of poor posture and regular, repetitive everyday activities. These are simple things that people do all the time, without realizing how it can hurt their backs. These things include bending awkwardly, carrying heavy items, pushing or pulling something, standing for long periods, or kneeling down for too long. Sitting in a hunched position, such as sitting a desk or driving, for too long are very common ways of causing back pain that most people don’t often pay attention to. Also, sleeping on a bad mattress that doesn’t have the right support to keep the spine straight, and people with sleep disorders are more likely to develop back pain.
Structural problems are also known to cause back pain. These can be several things, such as ruptured or bulging disks along the spine, resulting in pressure on nerves and causing back pain. Arthritis, in terms of back pain, causes problems with the lower back, joints in the hips, and in some cases spinal stenosis can occur and cause problems along the spine. People who have an abnormal curvature of the spine are more likely to suffer from back pain. While the Handy Cure won’t cure these problems, it will help relieve the pain and create longer lasting relief over time.
Back pain is not just caused from muscle strain or sport related injuries, there are actually many unexpected causes that are not physical can occur on a day to day basis. A mentally stressful job can cause muscle and back pain, as well as sitting in the same same position all day without taking breaks or stretching.
Overly strenuous physical exercise or work, like not doing exercises properly or standing too long can cause aches and pain in the back. Depression and anxiety have also been known to cause physical pain.
While people of all ages experience back pain, it is more common in older adults, especially women. Obesity or weight gain puts more strain on the back and can result in pain. Also, back pain is a symptom common during pregnancy, and pregnant women should consult a doctor before using the Handy Cure to treat their back pain.
