What is Lower Back Pain?
Lower back pain, pain felt in the lower back, is a common complaint with various causes. This pain can range from a tingling sensation to sharp stabs in the lower back. In about 90% of cases, the cause remains unknown. Lower back pain can occur suddenly or develop gradually and may radiate to the buttock area or even to the knee due to nerve compression.
Causes of Lower Back Pain
Although many cases of lower back pain have an unknown cause, here are some different causes that can lead to lower back pain:
A lumbar hernia is a protrusion of the intervertebral disc in the spine located at the bottom of the back. Due to the amount of nerves that move through the spine, this protrusion can press on one or more nerves or even become trapped, causing you to experience lower back pain which can also radiate to the buttock area and legs. If the nerve is severely compressed, sensory disturbances or paralysis symptoms may occur.
Narrowing in the Lower Back, also known as Lumbar Stenosis
This condition often occurs at an older age in our society. The cause is a narrowing in the spinal canal, creating little space for the passage of nerves and thus putting pressure on the nerve tissue. This pressure is experienced as lower back pain.
As is now known, stress is not good for our body. Having long periods of stress or a large amount of work pressure leads to tense muscles in the body, including in the lower back, causing these lower back muscles to become acidic and thus resulting in lower back pain.
Incorrect Posture During Work or Sleep
In many cases, lower back pain is caused by incorrect posture while working at a desk, studying, or from having an incorrect sleeping position. This causes the lower back muscles to be unnecessarily under tension all day or partially, resulting in overstrained lower back muscles, or lower back pain.
Fracture in a Vertebra
The cause of a fracture in the lower back vertebra is almost always an accident, where the doctor urgently stabilizes the lower back and lets it heal on its own. In this recovery period, the lower back is immobilized with a corset to prevent unnecessary movement for optimal healing. Many people then still suffer from a stiff lower back with associated lower back pain. In many cases, the lower back pain goes away on its own, and in some cases, it results in chronic lower back pain.
Scoliosis is a curvature in the spine, and due to this unnatural curvature in the back, it can press on nerves leading to lower back pain. It may also happen that the curvature is so large that the nerves from the spinal cord become trapped, resulting in lower back pain radiating to the legs. A reduced sensation or strength in the legs may also occur.
Ankylosing spondylitis is an autoimmune disease that releases inflammatory proteins in the body while attacking the spinal vertebrae. This can cause inflammation in joints, tendons, or muscles in the body, including the muscles in the lower back, resulting in lower back pain.
Lumbago is severe lower back pain, caused by the cramping of the lower back muscles. Lumbago is a condition with varying causes. It can arise from a sudden quick wrong movement or an incorrect sitting or sleeping posture, resulting in a severe form of lower back pain.
