Back pain is an unfortunate problem for many individuals. It's sometimes chronic. It can also stem from an injury. No matter the cause, it can hinder your ability to do what you love and enjoy life, and can keep you up at night. Stop letting low back pain interfere with your life and get treatment for Dr. Jason Cheshire of Pompano Beach Chiropractic Clinic in Pompano Beach, FL.
Causes of Low Back Pain
As noted above, you could develop low back pain from an injury. Some people experience it from a chronic condition. Age tends to play a role.
You could strain or sprain your back. A strain tends to arise from over usage, while a sprain is usually from a sudden injury. A strain affects a muscle or tendon, and a strain affects a ligament. You could also herniate a lumbar disc, which happens when the lining of a disc tears and the contents potentially leaks through the opening. It's more common as you age, and although strain on the disc can injure it, some people never know how it arises.
If you have fibromyalgia, you may have chronic lower back pain. Degenerative disc disease is another reason for chronic low back pain, and it occurs when the discs wear out over time.
Some other examples of low back pain causes include:
- Spinal stenosis
