Common Causes of Back Pain

Back pain is a complex condition with a variety of triggers. Understanding these triggers is the first step in effective treatment.

Muscle or Ligament Strain

Heavy lifting or awkward movements can strain spinal ligaments and back muscles.

Bulging Discs

Discs act as cushions between the bones in your spine. A disc that bulges can press on a nerve, causing pain.


This can lead to spinal stenosis, a condition where the space around the spinal cord narrows, causing pain.


This condition makes bones brittle and more prone to fractures, which can affect the vertebrae of the spine.

Postural Problems

Poor posture over time can contribute to chronic back pain by putting constant strain on the back muscles and spine.

Back Pain Relief Ottawa FAQs

To prevent back pain, consider incorporating regular low-impact exercises like walking, and swimming to strengthen your back muscles and improve flexibility. Pay attention to your posture, especially when sitting for long periods – using ergonomic chairs and taking frequent breaks can be beneficial. Also, be mindful of your body mechanics while lifting objects; always lift from your knees, not your back.
The time it takes to see improvements in back pain varies depending on the individual and the underlying cause of the pain. Some patients may experience relief after a few treatment sessions, while others with more chronic conditions might take several weeks or months to notice significant improvements. Consistency in attending therapy sessions and adhering to prescribed at-home exercises or lifestyle changes can greatly influence the recovery time. It’s important to have an open dialogue with your therapist about your progress and any concerns you have.
Exercise is generally safe and beneficial for back pain, but it should be approached carefully. Low-impact activities like walking, swimming, and specific therapeutic exercises can strengthen the muscles that support your back and improve flexibility without adding strain. It’s crucial to avoid high-impact activities or heavy lifting that might worsen the pain.
Poor posture can significantly contribute to back pain by putting extra stress on the back muscles and spinal structures. Over time, this can lead to muscle imbalances, and strained muscles, all of which can cause or exacerbate back pain. Slouching, leaning forward for prolonged periods, or sitting in an unsupported position can all lead to these issues. Correcting posture through ergonomic adjustments, awareness, and exercises can help alleviate and prevent back pain.
