Common Causes of Back Pain
Back pain can occur at any age, and can occur in both the upper and lower parts of the back. There are many causes for pain, but one of the most common causes of back pain is muscular ailments such as prior injuries, muscle inflammation and strains, and even stress that leads to tense upper back muscles.
This can also impact lower back health. Lower back pain can also be more commonly attributed to issues dealing with the spine. These include:
- A herniated disc: This is where the disc in between the vertebrae ruptures and causes compression on surrounding tissues and nerves
- Bulging discs: These are discs that are taken out of place and alignment, similar to a herniated disc
- Sciatica: This is where the sciatic nerve is compressed that leads from the lower back to the outer legs
- Spinal stenosis: This is where the spinal canal narrows and compresses on the nerves inside of the spinal column
