Lower back pain is a common complaint we see at The Backbone clinics.
Common causes of Back Pain
- Postural: Muscles in the back can become tight and strained from poor standing posture or seated posture.
- Osteoarthritis: worn discs, joints in the spine from overuse, being overweight or poor core muscle strength.
- Muscles strain from heavy lifting or a fall
- Disc damage
- Nerve damage
- Referred from other organs for example: kidney, bladder, bowel, uterus, prostate.
All these conditions can cause lower back pain and may also result in pain referred to the legs, other parts of the body. They may also result in muscle spasms, which can cause severe pain and disability.
