There are many different causes for low back pain, and very often there is no known cause for it. Usually it just appears and worsens over time. Poor posture, prolonged sitting or driving and repetitive or awkward working positions are often what brings it on.
Other times it can be brought on suddenly with an awkward twist or bend giving a twinge initially, with worsening pain as the inflammation and muscle spasm settles in.
Osteoarthritis or "wear and tear" is a very common cause for back pain especially as we age, however the pain is usually caused by stiffness and muscle tension.
A chiropractor will identify and treat the cause of your back pain and give advice on how to best control it.
