Most instances of back pain are caused when a person lifts, bends, twists, or exercises in a way that they are not accustomed to. If you are not in great physical shape, playing a rough game such as football can commonly cause a back injury. Back injuries also occur at work when individuals are lifting or bending to perform their work but they are not in physical shape to do so.
Other times, a person is in alright physical shape but they use improper movement to lift heavy items. Although back pain in usually caused by an isolated incident, they are supported by overall lifestyle choices and health. For example, a person who suffered a back injury five years ago is more likely to have an accident that causes them injury today. Poor posture over the course of several years can also weaken the muscles and ligaments in our back, as well as obesity.
After a back injury caused by someone else’s actions, you may be entitled to compensation. An experienced personal injury attorney can provide more information.
