Factors that Cause Back Pain
Genetics, age and lifestyle are three main factors for back pain, according to Neurosurgeon Jobyna Whiting, who also says that back pain is not necessarily associated with birth.
“The vast majority of Americans who suffer from back problems has nothing to do with what they were born with.” The specialist explains if the problem is genetics, there is not much that can be done. The other factor is the “amount of time that the people have been alive and how they use their spine during that time. Many Americans come to get help when the pain is uncontrolled.”
Also, she states that not everybody needs a spine surgery. “Statistically speaking, you don’t need a surgery for the back. Most people who have come forward with a spine surgery are probably in their 50s, 60s or 70s”, adds the specialist who states not all of them need it.
