What is the cause of lower back pain?

Lower back pain can be caused by a multitude of things and is extremely frequent in people over the age of just twenty five. One of the most common causes of lower back pain is poor posture for prolonged periods of time whether it be walking, or sitting in a chair. This can be improved or corrected by correcting the posture and using the assistance of chairs that are ergonomically designed.

Sometimes you can injure your lower back and this can take a long time to heal on its own. If it is too serious you may never recover and will require surgery and in rare cases need to have a disk removed.

Obesity can also cause lower back pain problems. An overweight person carries most of their weight on the front side of their body placing an enormous amount of stress on the back which helps to carry it. A simple diet change with exercise to strengthen the back can often remedy this.
