Low Back Pain Causes

Lower Back Pain Causes

More then 80 percent of us will experience back pain at least once in our life. Millions of people around the world suffer from back pain. In the chart above, you can see some of the causes of lower back pain. Most of you will experience lower back pain rather then upper back pain. This is due to the fact that the lower back is more flexible and mobile then the upper back. On top of that, your lower back supports the weight of your upper body, causing daily stress on your lumbar.

Low Back Pain Causes

There’s a lot of different things that can cause low back pain. One of the most common causes of lower back pain is injury and trauma. Your back is made up of bones, joints, disc, ligaments, muscles and nerve roots. Any type of trauma or injury to your back can cause you pain. If you’ve been recently injured and are experiencing back pain, you should see a doctor immediately. Never ignore your back pain, this is your body’s way of telling you that something is wrong.

Causes Of Lower Back Pain

Natural Aging

Another cause of back pain is natural aging. Your vertebrae are cushioned by spinal disc. This protects the spine, giving it support and acting as a shock absorber. Your back disc has a jelly-like substance, made up of mostly water. Over time as years past, your disc lose water and begin to harden. Eventually, they can wear down to nothing and your vertebrae may rub against one another. This process is known as degenerative disc. This can cause you to have back pain. These spinal disc can also slip into your nerve roots, again causing you back pain. These types of injury can occur anywhere on your spine but more common in the lower back.

Degenerative disc is very common, especially as you age. While some cases of degenerative disc only have minor pain, some cases have been known to cause severe pain and agony. Remember, we all react to pain differently. We do know that decompressing the spine can relieve this pressure and pain. Anyone with degenerative disc should be careful how they exercise and move. If this is a condition that has bothered you for years, a chronic condition in such cases, we can help you find relief.

Herniated Disc

Herniated disc are a very common cause of lower back pain. Herniated disc are commonly found in the lumbar spine, which is the lower back. You can also get herniated disc in the upper back and neck. If you have a herniated disc in the lower back, it can be quite painful. Lower back herniated disc can be caused by old age and natural wear. Again, just as we discussed above with degenerative disc, the cartilage between your vertebra can shrink or wear.  When a disc is damaged though, it can bulge or break open. This is what is known as a herniated disc. Again, this is a common occurrence in the lumbar, another likely cause of lower back pain.

Spondylolisthesis is a term that we don’t hear about a lot but it is a medical term and can cause lower back pain. So, what is spondylolisthesis? Spondylolisthesis refers to the vertebrae moving out of regular alignment. You have 30+ vertebrae in your back. The spine is help in position by ligaments and muscles. Over time, your back muscles and ligaments wear down. It’s just the normal process of aging. Your vertebrae can actually slide and move on top of the next vertebrae in your lower back. This process can cause severe lower back pain. When spondylolisthesis occurs, your vertebrae can begin to press against the spinal nerves. This can cause extreme lower back pain that can reach all the way to the legs.

Scoliosis is another condition that can cause pain in the lower back. Scoliosis is a term that you may have heard of before. Scoliosis is a condition when the spine is actually curving side to side. A normal vertebrae is straight with little curving. Scoliosis can cause the spine to look more like a “S” or even as a “?” shape. With a normal spine, all the elements that make up the spine and support the spine align perfectly. With scoliosis, this is not possible. Any of the components of the back can be misaligned and cause the person extreme pain. Thanks to medical technology, scoliosis can be improved and treated.

Osteoarthritis is one of the most common arthritis. Osteoarthritis can be caused by a number of different things such as aging joints, injury, and obesity. Osteoarthritis symptoms include joint pain and stiffness. Treatment depends on the affected joint, including the hand, wrist, neck, back, knee, and hip, and often involves medication and exercise. If you weight is the cause of your OA, weight loss can help your symptoms. Arthritis in general can also be the cause of your lower back pain.
