3 Common Things that Can Cause Back Pain

By Virginia Laird

Back pain may seem to be a common problem among people in many communities. Many struggle to determine the cause behind the pain. However, chiropractors suggest the cause of such pain may be more common than most are aware. A few of the leading causes of back pain which are related to fashion include:

  • Wearing high heels for an extended period of time
  • Carrying a heavy purse everywhere you go
  • The clothes you are wearing may be too tight

Wearing High Heels for an Extended Period of Time

While heels are beautiful, they can be troublesome for the body. Not only is wearing high heels bad for the feet, it can also cause back pain. Chiropractors recommend those who love heels to make certain to keep the height at or below two inches. Much higher than this can affect one’s natural stride, causing the spine to feel the stress of the change. This can be painful. If you suffer with some back pain and are a lover of high-heeled fashion, it is wise to consider giving your feet and your back a break at least twice a week.

Carrying a Heavy Purse Everywhere You Go

Do you love a large purse? If so, you are probably guilty of carrying far too much inside. My beautiful bag seems to always be far too heavy. This is in part due to the fact that I never take the time to empty it. But I also tend to have more than I need stowed inside. Chiropractors recommend those who carry super heavy purses to consider investing in a smaller purse in an effort to help lighten the load. This can help relieve some stress from the back and neck and help to prevent back pain.

The Clothes You are Wearing May Be Too Tight

Have you ever considered that your clothing may be causing your back pain? Chiropractors preach that wearing clothing that is too tight is a recipe for back pain. When clothes are too tight, they can cause the body to move in unnatural ways, putting stress on the spine and back muscles. If you struggle with back pain and tend to wear tighter fitting clothing, consider trying a looser fitting wardrobe.
