Many things can cause back and spine pain, such as age-related changes, posture, or injury. However, unexplained back or spinal pain that won’t ease even after treatment might signify something more serious. 

Most of us know to be careful about lifting heavy objects or slouching to reduce back pain. But do you think about how your daily habits might be affecting your spine? There may be more daily activities than you knew contributing to your back pain.


Our bodies go through
many changes as we age, one of which is the natural wear and tear of our bones and muscles. Sometimes, this natural wear on the body can cause discomfort, most commonly in the neck and back. This discomfort is called spondylosis, and it refers to the age-related wear and tear of the spine.


Lower back pain is one of the most prevalent health complaints from adults, affecting 60 to 80 percent of the global population. For many people, back pain is minimal and manageable. However, for those suffering from chronic back pain, surgery may be their best option.

Unfortunately, surgery may not yield desired results and may even result in complications such as increased pain and discomfort. It's unfortunate to experience a failed back surgery, but there is hope for living a pain-free life.


If you feel tension in your body or experience discomfort in your back while sitting, walking or standing, you may benefit from stretching. Regularly stretching improves flexibility, range of motion, energy levels and posture. It also releases tension to help relieve and prevent pain.


According to the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, nearly 3 percent of Americans (or roughly 7 million people) are diagnosed with scoliosis. While it's not an overly common condition, understanding scoliosis and knowing what signs to look for in children can increase early detection rates. When found early, those diagnosed with scoliosis are more likely to lead healthy lives with minimal to no discomfort.
