Emotional and mental component to back problems

When you put a large amount of stress on your back temporarily, it seems to be doing you no harm. Carrying heavy items to and from your house, and picking up items that initially strain your back (even for short periods of time) can cause long- term problems. What you're doing is asking your spine to re-position, or off-center your weight, which leads to tension and immobility (long-term). When trauma hits your life, your muscles tense up, and you’re putting stress on all twenty-four parts of the spine (which works like a chain), and when one part of the spine doesn’t work, the other parts don't function correctly either.

Back pain is the second leading cause of work absenteeism (more than any other medical condition). Factors that play a huge role in back pain are: sitting for long periods of time, lifting improperly, lifting heavy objects, inadequate balance, poor posture, not stretching, bending, twisting, etc.

The psychological factors of back pain include: Job dissatisfaction, monotony at work, fighting with co-workers, and working in an isolated environment. People often ignore the fact that back pain is often related to the soft tissue, and if corrected early, could save you a lot of problems. The key to repairing the soft tissue is stretching. When you have an aching back, the last thing you want to do is put a heating pad on your skin (it causes swelling), it’s best to ice your back for 15-20 minutes.

It’s also a good idea to get advice about your breathing and walking from a bodywork practitioner.
