There’s no single answer, but any combination of heavy lifting, bending, or twisting can be that final straw that damages muscles, ligaments or joints. The fact is that while chronic pain over a prolonged period may be the result of stressful impact of repetitive motions, at times back pain flares up with no apparent cause. In every situation, we’ll work to find the root cause and create a treatment regimen to prevent recurrences.
Muscle Strain. Fatigue and back pain from poor posture to lifting heavy loads.
Poor Posture. Over time placing excessive load on the spine.
Bulging Discs. These spinal shock absorbers reduce stress, but are susceptible to sudden movements, postural stress, and are manifested inflammation and radiating pain, numbness from irritation of nearby spinal nerves.
Facet Joint Sprain. These joints connect each vertebra above and below, and can be sprained, causing inflammation, pain and limiting movement.
Sciatica: Running from your lower back, down your thigh and calf to your foot, if the Sciatic nerve is compressed, debilitating lower back pain can radiate to the leg or buttock, causing uncomfortable pins and needles, numbness, muscle spasms, weakness and reduced flexibility.
