Back pain affects 8 out of 10 people at some point during their lives. And it’s one of the most common reasons for people to miss work or to pay a trip to the doctor or chiropractor to find relief.
Many cases of chronic back pain can be traced back to structural problems with the spine such as scoliosis, or injuries such as car accidents or muscle strain. But some people are simply mystified about the cause of their symptoms. Yet there are many surprising things that can cause your back to play up, according to our Stoke on Trent chiropractor. Take coffee, for example. You wouldn’t think that your daily dose of caffeine could cause pain in your spine, would you? But it absolutely can!
Not many people know this but caffeine puts extra stress on the adrenal glands – just a single cup of coffee can stimulate them into overdrive! And guess where these glands are located? Right in the lower back!
Any undiagnosed back pain needs to be checked out by a reputable chiropractor or healthcare professional, but it’s always worth thinking outside of the box when it comes to the cause of your symptoms.
