I think a poor posture can be responsible for this, and it is common in most teenagers. Here are some very useful tips you should always remember:
- There is no difference between proper standing and sitting posture: keep your head and shoulders standing erect and face straight ahead.
- Don't stand or sit for a very long time: take some breaks once in a while and change your standing or sitting positions as you wish.
- Put yourself very close to where you work and make sure you work at a very comfortable height.
But there are still some other possibilities as you can find below. You can make use of them as references:
- Ligament and muscle injuries. These have been found to be some of the major and most common causes of back pain. You can end up with some serious stress sprains and strains. Most of such injuries can heal in a few days or at most a few weeks.
- Disc injuries. Discs can be compared to pad cushions in-between your spine bones. They do the work of shock absorbers. They can be torn open by things like physical stress or injury. This is referred to as a herniated or ruptured disc. Ruptured discs can lead to cases of pressures and inflammation on the nerves and leads to pain like sciatica.
- Osteoarthritis. The joints in the spine can be affected by arthritis just like your knees and wrists can be affected. Your spine joints are called facet joints. Discs break down and shrink with age. The facet joint starts rubbing against each other. You may experiencing stiffness in your back when you wake from sleep or painful after walking or standing for a long time.
- Osteoporosis. Fractures are made more likely by weaker bones, this includes the fractures in your spine.
- Spinal stenosis. Your spinal cord is surrounded by several bones. The spinal cord is made up of several nerves that sees to the transfer of signals from your body to your brain and from your brain to your body. When the space near your spinal cord becomes narrow, it subjects your spinal cord to more pressure which can cause pains. Osteoarthritis is one of the major causes, which can result to very bony growths known as spurs that push into the area near the spinal cord.
- Spondylolisthesis. The bones of your spinal column are kept lined up by several joints and ligaments. If they get too loose, the bones will likely slide or slip against each other. The can equally press into very sensitive tissues and nerves.
