Causes of Back Pain
Back pain is the leading cause of disability in those under age 45. About 80 percent of adults experience back pain at some point during their life. Anyone who has suffered from back pain knows it’s debilitating, interfering with everyday routines and preventing you from enjoying activities — even sleeping.
The lower back is where most people experience back pain. That area includes the five vertebrae, which supports a lot of your upper body weight. There are discs in the spaces between those vertebrae. These round, rubbery pads are like shock absorbers, cushioning the bones as you move.
Ligaments are bands of tissue that hold the vertebrae in place, and tendons attach the muscles to the spinal column. On top of that, you have 31 pairs of nerves to help control body movements.
That means there are a lot of places something can go wrong. It’s possible to strain neck and back muscles, sprain ligaments, rupture disks, and irritate joints, all of which can lead to lasting back pain. Poor posture, arthritis, and stress can also cause or complicate back pain.

You shouldn’t have to live with chronic back pain. Taking pain medication is not a long-term solution and surgery may be risky. Either way does not guarantee relief from your constant pain.
