It has been reported that up to 80% of the US population suffers back pain. Whether it is severe pain that has you on the ground, or just a tiny tweak you feel upon getting out of bed this morning, we have all experienced some discomfort from our backs.

Here are two common reasons of back discomfort that we've observed as chiropractors:

1- Poor posture is a common cause of lower back discomfort. Long periods of slouching can lead the hip flexors to tighten and the lower back muscles to elongate, impacting pelvic tilt and movement. Correcting posture can be accomplished by using a stand-up desk and hanging from a door frame to decompress the spine.

2- Smoking not only causes lung cancer but also damages the spine and lower back. Nicotine restricts blood flow and can lead to back problems and osteoporosis-related issues, resulting in lower back pain.
