Why Lower Back Pain Is So Common
Nearly 8 out of 10 people will have lower back pain at some point. When we look at the leading risk factors of this condition, it's easy to understand why so many people are affected by it! Sedentary lifestyles, obesity, stress, poor posture, frequent lifting or twisting, manual jobs, slips or falls, and even smoking all can increase the risk of low back pain.
By helping you understand your specific contributing factors, we're able to help you get started on your journey toward long-lasting relief.
Conditions That Cause Lower Back Pain
Back pain can affect anyone at any age in all walks of life. The most common underlying diagnoses that can lead to lower back pain, stiffness, and other symptoms, include the following:
- Spondylosis (a type of arthritis affecting the spine)
- Degenerative disc disease
- Disc bulge
- Disc herniation
- Muscle strains
- Spinal stenosis
- Lumbar radiculopathy (compression of a nerve root in the lower back area)
Low back pain often occurs with additional symptoms such as radiating pain and numbness in one or both legs. Depending on the underlying cause of low back pain, a person's symptoms may get worse or better depending on things like activity, time of day, or stress level.
