Are you experiencing lingering discomfort on your back? A misaligned back affects your daily activities, regardless if it brings chronic or acute pain. It makes sitting, walking, and even lying down painful and challenging. In more severe cases, this condition prevents you from engaging in sports and other activities requiring you to be mobile. Aside from its effects on your quality of life, a misaligned back also puts you at risk for other injuries and diseases.
Several risk factors can lead to a misaligned back. Some of these include:
- Athletic injuries
- Work-related injuries
- Vehicular accidents
- Poor posture
- Unhealthy exercise habits
- Old age
- Underlying conditions
One of the common causes of a misaligned back is poor posture. Slouching strains your spinal discs over time since it stretches the ligaments in an irregular and unhealthy position. Bad posture can manifest into a bulging disc that appears as a misaligned back. Improper workout and exercising posture can also put excessive pressure on your back or cause a herniated disc. Aside from these habits, injuries can also result in having a misaligned back, especially during high-impact crashes. Lastly, people with underlying conditions like arthritis, osteoporosis, and scoliosis are more susceptible to having misaligned back.
