Experiencing Back Pain at a Young Age

neck_pain.jpgAccording to brian_kessler – medical director of spine_and_sports_medicine – back muscle strain in young adults can range from superficial to very serious. Whether minor or serious, delaying a proper diagnosis and effective pain management treatment for your back pain can cause the underlying medical condition to worsen.

Back Strain

The most common causes of back pain for a young adult:

  • Strained muscles
  • Strained ligaments

Back muscle and ligament strain in young adults is very common due to their active lifestyle.

  • Lifting heavy objects
  • Lifting improperly
  • Carrying excessive weight
  • Pushing or pulling excessive weight
  • Standing for too long
  • Sitting for too long
  • Bending too often and long
  • Driving for too long
  • Excessive exercise
  • Over exertion during daily activities
  • Sudden movements
  • Bending or twisting awkwardly

These activities cause the straining, stretching or tearing of muscles, ligaments, and tendons, making a young adult experience dull and achy back pain. Back pain ranges from localized stiffness or soreness to difficulty in walking or standing up straight without hurting. The Massage Specialists at spine_and_sports_medicine provide relief to these symptoms of back pain due to sports/work injuries and repetitive stress injuries. Medical Massage promotes the flow of blood and lymph, relieving tension, stimulating nerves, and stretching/loosening back muscles.

Sedate Lifestyle

An inactive lifestyle by young adults also contributes to the likelihood of back pain.

  • Lack of exercise
  • Obesity
  • Poor posture
  • Stressful work environment
  • Hunching over a computer
  • Watching too much TV
  • Excessively playing computer games or obsessing on social media networks
