Common Causes of Back Pain

Common Causes of Back Pain

Back pain is one of the most common discomforts that many individuals will experience. Whether it’s your lower back, upper back, or the whole thing, back pain is something that you don’t want to live with. One way to prevent back pain and help treat it is to understand common causes of back pain.

Weekend Warriors

We all love the weekends. It’s our opportunity to relieve stress from work or get much-needed work done around the house. Whether it’s a pickup game of basketball or a to-do list, as we get older these activities can cause major harm on our backs.  One way to prevent harm to your back is to stretch before any strenuous exercises. And yes, that means stretching before yard work. Do some basic stretches to loosen up your core and watch as they work wonders to prevent injury.

Another helpful tip is to get a back brace. Aeroflow Healthcare offers top-brand back braces that can help provide needed postural stability when tackling your weekend adventures. Check out some of the braces that Aeroflow offers.

Poor exercise technique

So you’re back in the gym and lifting weights or running. You haven’t lifted in years but you want to get rid of those extra pounds to get in shape. One problem, your form stinks. Before you get offended, don’t. This is extremely common. The best solution is to talk to someone who works at your gym and see if they offer a quick tutorial with a trainer. These can be great because the trainer will ask your goals and tailor an exercise regimen just for you. Some gyms charge for this while others will provide this for information for free. Not only will the trainer show you what to do, they will also show how to it so that you don’t hurt yourself!

Everyday tasks

It’s just taking out the garbage, what’s the worst that could happen? The worst thing that could happen is you can injure your back and have nagging back pain. This is one of the most common causes of back pain. Not paying attention when doing everyday tasks and ending up with an injury. To prevent this, focus on what you’re doing and lift heavy objects (anything of 25lbs) with your legs and with a partner if possible. You can also wear a back brace while doing your everyday chores to provide the necessary postural stability to prevent injury.

Work

Whether you’re driving to work or sitting at work you probably do a good deal of sitting. And if you’re like me you don’t always, or hardly ever, keep your back in an upright position. This can cause back pain due to exposing your back’s discs to unnecessary stress. One thing you can do is make a conscious effort to keep better posture. If you’re like most of us who find this difficult to do, then try a back brace. The back braces we provide are designed to give you the necessary support when seated and will keep you seated in the correct position.

Takeaway

Surprisingly, simple everyday tasks can do major harm to our backs. However, there are simple measures we can take to help prevent these and one of those is getting a back brace for increased postural stability.
