You don’t have to be an athlete to experience lower back pain. In fact, according to the National Institute of Health, 80 percent of adults will have lower back pain at some point. According to a large survey conducted by the NIH, more than 25 percent of adults have had low back pain in the last three months. The NIH reports that lower back pain is the most common reason for job-related disability.
Within the lower back is a complex combination of nerves, bones, tendons, discs, and muscles. If one or more of these structures are irritated or damaged, you may experience back pain. It is often severe. Pain in your lower back can be caused by:
- Strain of the large back muscles (erector spinae)
- Damage to the bones, ligaments or joints of the lower back
- Damage or degeneration of an intervertebral disc
- Irritation of the nerves in the lower back
There may also be underlying medical reasons for lower back pain, such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, osteomyelitis, tumors and even kidney stones. Major reasons for lower back pain are traumatic injuries from an accident, playing sports, or falling down.
Don’t wait for your lower back pain to get worse!
