Back Pain is a very common condition affecting 80% of the population once in their lifetime. Most of the time the situation resolves on its own but when it doesn’t it can be debilitating and can really affect the quality of life for someone.
It can prevent and limit you from the activities that you love to do and even affect your family and loved ones. This can lead to progression of the condition and even have a psychological impact such as depression. Seeing someone and getting educated on your condition is vital.
Most causes of back pain are mechanical in nature. What this means is that it may be caused by the discs, joints, or surrounding tissue. The good thing is that if diagnosed correctly it can be fixed and pain can be reduced along with increasing functionality and mobility.
