What can make you have persistent back pain

According to Healthline The back, with its intricate structure, is a vital organ (consisting of bones, discs, nerves, joints, and muscles). The back muscles, as described by Healthline, serve to stabilize the spine, link the pelvis to the shoulders, and facilitate torso and spinal mobility. The foregoing suggests that without the back, the human body would be severely handicapped in its ability to carry out a wide variety of physiological processes.

However, at some point in their lives, everyone suffers from back pain. This may be the result of both the demands of daily life and the fact that our bodies are highly attuned to their environments and, depending on our mood, either increase or decrease their efficiency. Back pain is just one sign that your body isn't happy with the way it's being used or abused.

According to Healthline, back pain can affect people of any age, but the elderly are disproportionately affected. Upper back pain and lower back pain are the two most common types of back pain. Many people who have back pain also experience lower back symptoms.

Lower back pain is more common in older adults for a variety of reasons, including age and lifestyle choices, which have been confirmed by scientific studies. Upper back pain, experienced in the region of the spine that extends from the top of one's rib cage to the back of one's head, is a common symptom reported by those with this condition.

Why exactly does your upper and lower back hurt? The following are a few of the most typical causes of lower back pain.
