Common Back Pain Causes
The following represent the most common causes of back pain:
- Sprained Ligaments/Strained Back Muscles.
- A strained back muscle, which can cause back pain, a reduced range of motion, and stiffness, can be generated in a number of ways.
- A sudden, awkward motion while lifting a heavy object.
- Overusing your back in some way.
- Years of poor posture.
The discs that separate the spine’s vertebrae help cushion and keep the spine flexible and mobile. It may create back pain if they bulge, herniate, or become misaligned by age, movement, or injury.
Stenosis of the spine refers to a narrowing of the spinal canal. This medical condition puts pressure on the nerves in the spine, potentially generating various levels of pain, numbness, and weakness.
This medical condition causes one’s bones to become weak, brittle, and quite vulnerable to breakage or fracture.
This degenerative joint disease, usually the result of years of natural wear and tear, can potentially impact any of the spine’s or body’s joints. Osteoarthritis causes pain and related symptoms.
Being overweight can create misalignments in a person’s musculoskeletal system, irregular movement/pressure, and, ultimately, back pain.
Conditions like scoliosis create abnormal spinal curvatures, potentiating back pain.
