Determining the exact cause of back pain can be a challenge, and requires obtaining an accurate history and an appropriate clinical examination. Back pain is often due to a combination of issues, including:

  • Faulty spinal biomechanics
  • Spinal musculature which has become weak or deconditioned
  • Uncoordinated muscle firing patterns
  • Degeneration
  • Trauma (acute and chronic)
  • Joint dysfunction
  • Poor posture
