Low Back Pain

There can be a number of causes of low back pain, and making a diagnosis can be very complex because there are many muscles, ligaments, bones, and internal organs that can be affected. In women, gynecological issues can also cause low back pain.

However, most causes of low back pain in adults from ages 30-60 is muscle strain. By lifting a heavy object, twisting, or making a sudden move, the muscles or ligaments can stretch or tear. Even microscopic tears can cause pain.

For adults over 60, pain is typically related to degeneration of the joints and discs in the spine. Two of the most common causes of low back pain in older adults are spinal stenosis (a narrowing of the spinal canal) and osteoarthritis (arthritis that affects joints). A spinal disc problem involving a pinched nerve can also cause low back pain.
