Causes

 

When it comes to lower back pain, it is inevitable for many people and can’t be avoided.  There are many causes as to why someone will develop symptoms of lower back pain:

 

  • Age – As you get older, the likelihood of lower back injuries increases. As you age, your spinal fluid will slowly begin to be reduced, resulting in the spinal discs grinding against each other.
    • Lifestyle – Living an extremely active lifestyle can result in back pain. Overworking your back muscles, whether it’s lifting heavy items or not giving your body time to rest, can result in back pain.
    • Disc injury – A herniated disc occurs when the cartilage surrounding the disc pushes against the spinal cord or nerve roots. This type of injury occurs when lifting heavy objects improperly or twisting your back.

 

  • Smoking – If you smoke cigarettes, this can exponentially increase your risk of back pain. Constant nicotine abuse can result in reduced blood flow and the decay of the spinal discs.
