Does Your Back Hurt When You Sit? This Could Be Why

Usually, sitting gives us a break from the stress of the day. We sit periodically when we’re on our feet often and expect to find the seated position comfortable and relaxing. This isn’t possible for folks whose back pain is triggered when they sit down. If sitting causes or worsens your back pain, it could be because you have an underlying condition that needs to be addressed. We discuss them here.




People often assume that chronic back pain will need to be treated with surgery. This can prevent them from getting the care they need while it may still be highly successful. Back pain rarely causes a doctor to immediately recommend surgery. In most cases, conservative treatments are prescribed for several months before more invasive treatments are considered.

At Innovative Spine Care Center in Tampa, we have helped numerous people achieve meaningful improvement in comfort. Dr. Watson’s use of thulium laser energy shuts down pain receptors in the affected part of the spine, thus helping patients regain an optimal quality of life.
