What Causes Back Pain?
Back pain is prevalent among white-collar workers. Prolonged sitting with poor posture will cause your pelvic area to misalign as it tightens and strains your back muscles and that put lots of undue stress on the spinal discs. Back pain can also be triggered by carrying heavy things while having weak and tight muscles, accidents, obesity, pregnancy or sports injuries.For pregnant women, prolonged poor posture and habits will cause them more back pain.
Back pain for pregnant women often gets worse towards the end of the day or if they have been standing for a long period of time. This is due to the muscles becoming tired easily and their ligaments stretching slightly from the combined weight of the mother and foetus. According to Back Society Singapore, 1 in 5 Singaporean adults suffer from neck and back pain.
Knee pain can also give rise to back pain due to uneven walking pattern that misaligns the back which can develop the possibility of a slipped disc, scoliosis and bone spurs that impinge on your sciatic nerve causing numbness and weaknesses of your leg in the long run. Prolonged sitting also weakens your core muscles which can lead to back pain as it cannot support your lumbar spine well, compressing your disc.
