Why does my back hurt?

There are several reasons you may be experiencing back pain, and identifying the root cause can be difficult. Fortunately, our highly trained physical therapist can help determine all the factors contributing to your condition and provide a comprehensive plan to address them all!

At Maximum Rehabilitation Services, in Chicago, IL, Evergreen Park, IL, and Munster, IN, our physical therapists regularly treat all types of back pain. We use research-back strategies that are proven to provide lasting results.

Some of the most common conditions that lead to back pain include:

Poor posture and prolonged positions

Our spines are designed to move. One of the most common causes of back pain is poor posture/prolonged positions. Our modern society is far more sedentary than past generations, and the incidence of back pain continues to grow.

Back pain caused by poor posture is commonly associated with prolonged activities like sitting and standing. When you sustain a posture, you can irritate the tissues in your body, leading to pain, dysfunction, and over time even inflammation or injury.


A back sprain occurs when you overstretch the ligaments in your spine, whereas a back strain occurs when you overstretch your back muscles. These types of injuries are often associated with a lifting injury or an accident (i.e., motor vehicle accident, slip, or fall).

Bulging or Herniated discs

The discs are specialized tissue between two vertebrae (i.e., spine bones). The discs help direct our spines’ movement and absorb forces and protect the bones from injury.

The discs are particularly vulnerable to injury from bending and twisting movements, primarily when associated with lifting in these positions. The disc is also susceptible to prolonged postures related to sitting or awkward tasks.

Injury to the discs can cause significant pain in the back and lead to a more serious condition known as radiculopathy (i.e., nerve pain) in your thigh, leg, or foot (aka sciatica).

The good news is that physical therapy at our Chicago, IL, Evergreen Park, IL, and Munster, IN clinics can help you if you struggle with pain associated with disc problems.

Degenerative disc disease (DDD)

Degenerative disc disease is another common cause of back discomfort and is most commonly associated with aging. Smoking, certain medications, and injury can also lead to degenerative changes.

Pain associated with degenerative disc disease often presents with changes to mobility and is commonly felt when initiating movement after a prolonged position (i.e., sitting, standing, or lying).

People often describe a dull, painful ache in the lower back that gets worse with standing or walking for lengthy periods.

Regardless of the cause of your back pain, our Maximum Rehabilitation Services physical therapists can help get to the root of your problem and, more importantly, give you the tools to resolve your pain!
