Back pain is one of the most common reasons for missed work and limited activity. An estimated 58-80% of adults will suffer from low-back pain at some point in their lives.
Back pain is not a diagnosis in and of itself; rather, it's a symptom of a medical condition. While medications can temporarily dull the pain, it's important to identify the source of your pain to find lasting relief.
Mechanical: Most back pain is related to mechanical disorders that cause you to experience pain when your spine moves in certain ways. One of the most common forms of mechanical back pain is disc degeneration. The spinal discs act as cushions between the vertebrae, and as we age, this cushioning begins to wear down, causing increased pain with movement. A part of the disc itself can also start to bulge, or herniate, irritating the surrounding nerves.
Mechanical back pain can also be caused by muscle spasms, strains, poor posture, prolonged sitting and standing, as well as repetitive motions or overuse injuries.
Injuries: Twisting, improper lifting, and auto collisions can tear or sprain the ligaments surrounding the spine, leading to back pain. Traumatic accidents or falls can result in severe spinal injuries, fractures, or sprains of the spinal bones themselves.
Acquired condition or disease: Several medical conditions can lead to back pain such as:
Arthritis (both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis)
Spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spine)
Kidney stones or infections
Infections and tumors:
In rare cases, tumors caused by cancer or other serious conditions can result in back pain. Also less common are infections involving the vertebrae, like osteomyelitis.
