What causes Back Pain?
There are many causes of back pain. Most causes are muskulo-skeletal, which means problems with muscles, joints and nerves. Often times these problems result from injury, overuse, poor posture, weakness of muscles, lack of motion, and lack of strength. All of these sources are a result of our lifestyle (the things we do and how we do them). It's very important to find what is causing the pain in the first place. For example we can recognize that slouching at your desk at work may be the cause of ones misaligned spine.

If you want to avoid this it is important to receive an evaluation to locate the problem and find a solution to resolve your back pain.
