Risk Factors for Back Pain
There are a number of factors that can increase the risk of back pain. Physical risk factors include being middle-aged or older, pregnancy, past compression fractures and family history. At the same time, there are risk factors for back pain that you can change with lifestyle changes. These risk factors include being overweight, poor posture, physically demanding jobs, sedentary lifestyle and stress. Excess body weight puts a strain on the back, and a sedentary lifestyle leads to weaker muscles.
