What causes back pain?

Back pain can be caused by various factors such as muscle contracture, trauma or spinal deformity.

A sedentary lifestyle, bad posture, muscular tension along the spine, extreme sports and impact are all potential causes for pain.

The exact cause can be difficult to identify, as they can arise in soft tissue, bone, intervertebral disk or in the nerves that innervate these structures.

It is recommended to see a doctor who specializes in the spine to perform a thorough assessment and thus take preventive or corrective action as the diagnosis.
