What Causes Back Pain?

Once you’ve had back pain, you’re all too likely to have it again. Just under half of us will relapse within one year, and many more will relapse in our life times. Luckily, most of us feel better within a few weeks, and almost all of us feel better within three months.

Most low back pain is due to muscular strain, often intensified by frequent sitting and poor posture.

What’s responsible for all this pain? Injuries and disc problems are notorious causes of back pain; however, the cause of the pain is unknown in roughly four out of five cases. Pulled muscles, arthritis and even depression might be the root of much of the discomfort.
