Up to 80% of Americans are said to experience back pain at some point in their lives. Whether it's severe pain that forces you to the ground or simply a minor discomfort you feel as you get out of bed in the morning, all of us have certainly felt some back pain.

As chiropractors, we've observed the following two typical causes of back pain:

1- Lower back pain often results from poor posture. Long lengths of time spent slouching will shorten the lower back muscles and tense the hip flexors, which will impact pelvic tilt and mobility. One can improve posture by hanging from a door frame to decompress the spine and using a stand-up workstation.

2- Smoking can cause damage to the spine and lower back, leading to recurring back problems and lower back pain. Nicotine restricts blood flow and interferes with calcium absorption, potentially causing osteoporosis-related issues.
