Spinal Issues That Can Cause Pain

Back pain can manifest anywhere along the spine, from the neck to the coccyx. On occasion, the pain may extend and affect one or both legs or the head or arms. When experiencing back pain, it's common to face limitations in bending, sitting, walking, lifting, and other activities.

The causes of back pain are highly varied, and sometimes back pain is the result of long-term wear instead of a single, easily identifiable injury. Back pain manifests not only from damage to the spinal structure but also from supportive muscles and ligaments.

The following represent the most common back pain causes -  

·        Heavy or repetitive lifting.

·        Bulging/Ruptured/Herniated Disc

·        A sudden awkward movement.

·        Leading a sedentary lifestyle without sufficient regular physical activity.

·        Poor posture.

·        Excess weight or obesity.

·        Stress-induced muscle tension.

In addition, specific medical conditions have also been associated with back pain, such as –

·        Arthritis – which may include –

·        Osteoarthritis - refers to a gradual and natural erosion of cartilage in the joints.

·        Ankylosing spondylitis - a condition with the potential to fuse the spine’s bones, causing less stiffness and pain.

·        Spinal stenosis is a medical condition defined by narrowing the spaces within the spine.

·        Osteoporosis is when bones become brittle, making them more prone to fracture.

·        Sciatica - characterized by severe pain brought on by an aggravated sciatic nerve.
