The spine is complex and intricate—and its mobile joints and bundles of nerves are deeply involved in daily human function. While we all know you can damage your back with an injury, there are several lesser-known causes of back pain that are highlighted in this video.
Back pain can be caused by everyday forced posture, specifically long hours of sitting or driving. Poor mood can also aggravate pain in general, increasing your perception of pain. By taking the appropriate steps to stay more regular and cheerful, you can actually reduce your back pain.
