The answer is very simple: poor posture. That is to say, the way you stand or sit or even lie down plays a major part in relieving the back pain. If you slouch, stretch or jerk suddenly, you have tendency to suffer back pain. Poor posture usually leads to the strain of the back muscles. In more serious situation, back pain might be related to subsidiary symptoms such as sprain, ligament pain and joints pain and etc.. More than that, back pain might also result from a slipped disk. Therefore, there are many reasons that cause back pain.
Apart from the above-mentioned causes, there are other factors that bring about back pain. Among these, lifting heavy things are the most common cause. In home and work places, sometimes we will rearrange our furniture to make our placement more reasonable. Of course, this will bring a change to our life and will make our life more convenient than before. But if we conduct this kind of task suddenly, we are inclined to suffer back pain because our body is not used to lifting heavy furniture. So if one lifts heavy things of a sudden, his back will be injured due to uneven distribution of loading. What’s more, some linked injures may be caused and they may result severe episodes of back pain.
In the above cases, we may know that slipped disk is usually caused by careless movements. Therefore, people need to be more careful. Usually, when one is lifting the furniture item, the top of the waist rather than the part below the waist will be twisted. As a result, a slipped disk results. This results on the onset of a spasm. Indeed in the serious cases of back pain, one needs to stay in bed for a rest.
When one can not endure the back pain and can not make exercise due to the acute spasm, he can try a simple way to correct his improper posture. By lying on a hard floor on one’s back and lifting one leg at a time up to the chest, one can relieve the pain of his back. While conducting this activity, he should put pillows below the knees and perform the tasks slowly and carefully so that the body does not hurt due to the stretch. In this way, the root cause of the disease will be found out. Then he can take a few steps to improve the back muscles to avoid pain on his back. He can keep doing this kind of exercise every day and his back pain will be likely to disappear some day in the future.
