7 Unexpected Reasons You May be Experiencing Back Pain – Part 2

In part one of our series regarding back pain, we provided valuable information as to what produces the condition. Now, we have more of the surprising reasons as to why you may be suffering back pain. At Total Pain Care, we want to shed some light on this big mystery to help you and your family make your way to a pain-free life.

Pelvic Problems

One of the biggest hidden reasons behind back pain is the position of the pelvis. The pelvic girdle is made up of three bones that can change positions due to the weakness of the muscles. There are certain drills and exercises to help you realign your pelvis, but medical attention is always advised.

Aortic Aneurysm

An aortic aneurysm occurs when the aorta, the main artery running from the heart to the abdomen, balloons. The pressure of the expansion can then put pressure on the spinal cord’s surroundings, leading to back pain. While not all aortic aneurysms are emergencies, medical assistance is advised to prevent any potential dangers.

Disc Infections

According to very recent Danish studies, lower back pain can be attributed to infections in the spinal material. The studies and their findings are still relatively new, but researchers found that people who took antibiotics saw relief from their pain. Still, like most conditions, professional medical help is strongly advised as a first plan of action.

Hamstring Tightness

Sitting all day can cause hamstring tightness, which can put more pressure on the back’s muscles. However, the lower back wasn’t built for work overloads, so this added pressure can quickly lead to fatigue and aches. To avoid this problem, stretch your entire body before physical activity.
