Leading Cause of Low Back Pain

What is causing my lower back pain?

"Discogenic Low Back Pain"

The leading cause of lower lumbar pain is nerve irritation, triggered by factors ranging from acute injuries, such as bending and twisting, to prolonged periods of sitting. The nerves that emerge from the spinal canal in the lumbar spine and branch out to the skin and muscles in our back, hips, and legs become irritated from increased pressure.

The increase in pressure results from the lumbar spine disc exerting force on the nerve roots. This is often called a "disc bulge" or "disc herniation".

It Is Very Common To Face Back Pain.

The majority of people will experience low back pain at some point in their lifetime, and 70% of those patients can attribute their symptoms to sprain/strain injuries.

Lumbar sprains and strains can often result from sudden or forceful movements like a fall, twist, lift, push, pull, direct blow, or quickly straightening up from a seated, crouched, or bent position. Most commonly, sprains and strains are not the result of any single event, but rather from repeated overloading.

The spine is very good at being able to manage small isolated stressors, but repetitive challenges often can lead to injury in much the same way that constantly bending a piece of copper wire will cause it to break. Examples of stress that can cause lower back pain include bad postures, sedentary lifestyles, poor-fitting workstations, repetitive movements, improper lifting, or being overweight.
