What causes pain?
Pain can develop as the result of injury, degenerative conditions, muscle strains, and more. Some of the most common causes of pain include:
- Herniated disc
The discs that sit in between your vertebrae absorb shock and provide flexibility for the spine. Each disc contains a soft center and hard outer shell. When cracks form in the outside of a disc, the center can push through and irritate surrounding nerves.
- Sprains and strains
The soft tissues in your back include a variety of muscles, ligaments, and tendons. When these tissues stretch too far too quickly, they can cause chronic low back pain. One of the most common reasons sprains and strains develop in the low back is improper weight lifting.
Arthritis is a type of joint inflammation that typically develops when the flexible cartilage surrounding the joints deteriorates. When arthritis affects the joints in your spine, it can cause low back pain.
Bone fractures occur for many reasons, including degenerative conditions like osteoporosis. Fractured bones in the back may cause chronic back pain that worsens over time.
Anybody can develop low back pain, but you’re far more likely to if you’re overweight, lift heavy objects at work, or have poor posture. While you may experience back pain at any age, individuals over the age of 30 are at an increased risk.
