Back Pain Causes and Conditions

All of our Pain Treatment Specialists are Harvard Trained and Board Certified in Pain Medicine. 

Common Back Pain Conditions

The most common causes of back pain is the straining of muscles, ligaments or muscle spasms. A strain or spasm can occur due to improper posture, lifting heave objects, and as a result of abrupt movements of the body.

Arthritis: Among all types of arthritis, osteoarthritis is the main reason for back pain. It usually causes low back pain, while at times triggering complications such as spinal stenosis, which is the narrowing of the boney space around the spinal cord.

Pathological curvatures of spine: One of the most common conditions that produce back pain is scoliosis, a condition in which the spine curves to the right or left side of the body.

Sciatica: It can also be caused by irritation of the spinal nerves and due to bulging or rupturing of the disk. Sciatica pain is very specific and causes a sharp pain that starts from the back and travels down the buttock to the lower limbs.

Slip Disk: This can be due to rupturing of the intervertebral disks or bulging of it. These disks are like cushions, and align with the vertebral bones to give flexibility and strength to the spine, but when it ruptures or bulges, the disk penetrates out from the aligned spine putting pressure on the spinal nerves.

Who is at Risk of Suffering from Back Pain?

Back pain can affect individuals of any age, but it mostly affects adults in the ages between 35 – 55 years old. Due to the wear and tear effects of the aging process, it is quite common for older adults to suffer from back pain. While active individuals get these back pains a little later than the ones who live a passive or sendentary life, age is usually related to this condition; the more you advance in age, the risk of experiencing a back pain increases. Our back pain treatment locations.

What are Signs of Back Conditions?

When pain is manifested on the back, it can indicate a health issue related to many organs and systems of the body. Pain in the upper back can indicate a problem associated with the chest, heart and major vessels, cervical spine and nerves and lower neck. Lower back pain can indicate a problem of the lumbar spine, sacrum, kidneys, abdomen and its organs, pelvic organs spinal cord and nerves. Moreover, obesity, pregnancy, psychological issues, smoking and a sedentary lifestyle can also put you at a high risk of developing this condition.

According to the Global Burden of Disease 2010, low back pain is the leading cause of disability worldwide.
