Discomfort while driving, trouble sleeping and pain when lifting: back pain can cause everyday activities to become quite a chore. Unfortunately, the majority of people will experience some type of back pain during their lifetime. Often we do not realize we are straining ourselves until it is too late. Even more often, we try to ignore the pain or deal with the symptoms rather than the core problem.
The causes vary widely from case to case. Lower back pain can be caused by strain and overexertion or by herniated or bulging discs. Similar things can cause upper back pain and middle back pain but it is more often times caused by overuse and poor posture. Many try to find back pain relief through exercise and medication, although it is often times not enough. Having a good mattresses and taking time to rest helps most mild cases.
