Causes of Backache
In our spine, there are three curves, and along with the discs, these act as shock absorbers and allow our spine to bend. In actual practice, we bend our spine 3000 to 5000 times a day and when one is involved with any of the tasks that require bending of the spine, the same can lead to pressure on the back side of ligaments and the lumbar and cervical joints of the spine.
In practice, a host of factors can be responsible for back pain, and these could be related with posture, ergonomics, one’s hobbies, work habits or lifestyle in general. The pain could be mild or severe, and it is not always limited to one’s back. Owing to a condition like a pinched nerve in the back, the pain could radiate to any part of the body, be it hands, head, legs or even feet.
