Question: What is the cause of chronic back pain?
Answer: There are many causes of back pain, depending on which structure is injured. However, the strength of the deep stabilisers of the back always plays a very important role.
Without stability of the back, simple movements can re-aggravate your back, even with the original irritation settled for a long time. The fear of hurting your back again can also be a cause of pain by itself, as proven by recent research.
Please ask you physiotherapist about how you can improve or regain control of your movements and return to your normal pain free activities.
