Back Pain Factors

Back pain is due to muscular issues or could be a mechanical problem. It can be caused by cervical radiculopathy, lumbar radiculopathy (sciatica), degenerative disc release (which is a normal aging process), herniated disc and scoliosis according to Specialist Melissa Guanche, Physiatrist at Baptist Health Neuroscience Center.

Aging, genetics, occupation hazards, sedentary lifestyle and overweight are risk factors to suffer from back pain, she says.

The physiatrist recommends, when a person is in a job, to get up every 45 minutes and check if there is a spine in its natural alignment in order to avoid any anomaly.
