What causes back pain?

Here are some common causes:

– Back sprain/strain

You might have injured your back. This often happens as a result of things like heavy lifting without proper posture. If so, you may have a back sprain/strain.

– Sciatica

This is a medical condition which is essentially an issue with the nerves between your feet and pelvis. Sciatica causes back pain.

– A slipped disc

This was my issue. It’s where a disc is pressing against a nerve in the spine and causing pain

– Muscular causes

Various muscular issues could be causing pain. A physiotherapist may be able to help.

– Psychological causes

Sometimes, the pain could be caused by an underlying psychological issue, as opposed to a physical problem with your back.

As you can see, back pain can be caused by many different things. I visited this website and, after realizing I had some of the symptoms listed on there, decided to ask spinal surgeon in Basingstoke to identify the source of mine. It turned out to be a slipped disc. I’d recommend speaking to your GP or chiropractor.
