It has been reported that up to 80% of the US population suffers from back pain. Whether it is severe pain that sends you to the ground, or simply a tiny tweak you feel when getting out of bed this morning, we have all experienced some discomfort from our backs.

Here are two prevalent reasons of back discomfort that we have observed as chiropractors:

1- Poor posture is a common source of lower back discomfort. Sitting in a slouched position for extended periods of time can cause the hip flexors to tighten and the lower back muscles to elongate, impacting pelvic tilt and mobility. Correcting posture can be accomplished by using a stand-up desk and hanging from a doorframe to decompress the spine.

2- Smoking not only causes lung cancer but also damages the spine and lower back. Nicotine restricts blood flow and interferes with calcium absorption, leading to recurring back problems and lower back pain.
