Possible Causes of Backaches

Backache can be caused by different things, situations and conditions. To have one is total nightmare. Yes, there are pain relievers that you can count on for faster way out of agony. But always relying on them will not eliminate the problem. If real cause is not address properly, it can worsen day by day. 

Possible Causes of Backaches
  • Lack of exercise
  • Wrong posture when sitting or standing
  • Unhealthy diet
  • Wrong way of picking up things or carrying stuffs
  • Smoking
  • Sitting for a long period of time
  • Too soft or too hard mattress
  • Sleeping positions
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Obesity
Taking medicines to relieve from terrible back pain is okay for one or two days. Always consider going to your doctor before taking more medicines. In such way, you'll be sure of the root cause of the backache.

Staying Away from Backaches

As I said most causes are stated above. If you don't want to suffer from this, there are plenty of ways to take care of ourselves. Working to correct or avoid the possible causes will definitely help as in the long run. 
  • Exercising is always the best way to stay away from any disease. 
  • Keeping a balance and healthy diet is next in line. Always find ways to unwind and de-stress.
  • Sleep well in a very good mattress. You can find foam mattress that can help you on this.
  • If you are smoking, then STOP. 
You can check my previous post on, How to Prevent Backache to see more of what we can do to keep ourselves from having back pains.

These are just prevention tips and not substitutes for doctor’s opinion. Visit your doctor for appropriate treatment.
