Most Common Causes of Low Back Pain
Low back pain often occurs due to acute trauma, such as a slip, fall, or auto accident. It also can come on due to repetitive and chronic strain—it's a common reason why this condition is so prevalent among people with physically demanding jobs or athletic hobbies.
Advancing age, being overweight, being sedentary, family and personal history, and smoking are additional risks factors for low back pain. As for the specific underlying diagnoses, the range is quite broad, and sometimes it's not always clear what's causing a back pain episode.
When a back pain episode is diagnosable, however, the most common conditions identified include:
- Spinal arthritis
- Spinal stenosis (narrowing of passageways and spaces throughout the spine)
- Sciatica (pinching of the sciatic nerve in the low back) or lumbar radiculopathy (compression of other lumbar nerves)
- Pelvic and/or sacroiliac dysfunction
- Muscle strains and ligament sprains
- Disc herniation or bulge
- Disc degeneration
Low Back Pain Signs and Symptoms
What does your low back pain feel like? Many people report dull, achy, sore, or throbbing pain. If nerve impingement is involved, they may also experience numbness, tingling, pain, or weakness in one or both legs.
Trunk stiffness and core weakness are also common among people with low back pain. Their pain often increases after prolonged standing or sitting.
