Indianapolis Back Pain Stats:
Nearly 31 million Americans experience low back pain at any given time (you are not alone).
One half of all working Americans admit to having back pain symptoms each year.
Back pain is one of the most common reasons for missed work.
In fact, it’s the second most common reason for visits to a doctor’s office, outnumbered only by upper respiratory infections.
Americans spend at least $50 billion each year on back pain - and that’s just for the more easily identified costs.
Experts estimate that as much as 80% of the population will experience a back problem at some time in their life.
Indianapolis Back Pain Causes:
The number one cause for back pain is multi-factoral, meaning it stems from more than one cause.
An example poor posture combined with a lack of an exercise program or repetitive use of the muscles and joints combined with poor posture.
A big cause is a biomechanical issue combined with an injury.
For example, people who sit all day for a living (no offense to those with desk jobs). Sitting is not a natural movement and we aren’t designed to sit for 8 hours at a time. This develops poor posture that spirals into back pain.
When we sit all day the hip flexor muscles become tight because they’re contracted all day long.
We then lose the ability to properly use our buttocks muscles (glutes). This starts a compensation reaction. The muscles and joints of the lower back begin to do all the work and start the process of wear and tear.
See how things can spiral with pain?
There is a very rare chance your back pain could be coming from a red flag type situation such as cancer, fracture, infection, or tumor.
Now don’t worry these red flags are extremely rare. For the sake of this webpage they must be mentioned.
