Common Threats to Your Lower Back
Your spinal column must withstand significant stresses and weight loads even as it balances your body and permits free motion -- and the lumbar area of the spine carries the heaviest burden of all. The large vertebrae, discs, and muscle groups in this region supports all the weight of your upper body. This makes it vulnerable to painful damage, either through an accident injury or from chronic wear and tear. Common situations that can cause lower back pain include:
- Excess weight, which places abnormal stress on the vertebral joints, muscles and discs
- Postural changes due to pregnancy or poor muscle support
- Bulging discs, which can irritate the facet joints of the lumbar spine
- Herniated discs that compress major nerve roots
- Degenerative changes such as spondylolisthesis or spinal stenosis
- An acute injury that tears muscles and/or dislocates vertebral components
Lower back pain can vary widely in intensity, from an annoying ache to debilitating pain. If the sciatic nerve is compressed, your lower back pain may be accompanied by leg pain and other leg symptoms.
