Everyday Habits Can Cause Back, Neck & Shoulders Pain
Dr. Michael Gleiber
According to research, low back pain is one of the most common problems
people have – it is the leading cause of disability in Americans under 45 years old. About 60 to 80 percent of the adult U.S. population has low back pain, and it is the second most common reason people go to the doctor. Each year 13 million people go to the doctor for chronic back pain. Low back problems affect the spine’s flexibility, stability, and strength, which can cause pain, discomfort and stiffness.
Many people with lower backaches say symptoms disrupt their daily routines; however, your everyday habits may be the factors causing the pain.
Back pain isn’t just about heavy lifting. Read everyday habits that cause aches and pains – and how to feel better.
