Anyone who has ever suffered from lower back pain knows it can greatly affect one’s sense of well-being, and ability to carry on with daily life. When you have pain in your back, it can keep you from being able to sleep through the night, or do the things you love to do like workout, play sports, or go hiking.

When looking for lower back pain relief, it can be important to know what caused the pain in the first place. Go over the things you did throughout the week to help your doctor determine the issues which may have caused your injury. There are different scenarios that cause this type of injury and these are just a few of them.

There are a few common causes of lower back pain including lumbar strain, nerve irritation, arthritis and lumbar radiculopathy.

  • Lumbar Strain: This is an injury in the tendons, and ligaments of the lower back. This stretching injury occurs because of overuse or poorly executed use of the back muscles. People who work hard labor often experience this type of ailment from constantly using their back muscles.
  • Nerve Irritation: The Lumbar spine nerves are irritated because of pressure being put on them by other tissue or bones.
  • Arthritis: An inflammatory disease that causes pain in the joints leading to lower back pain. Arthritis can affect anyone despite age or level of activity.
  • Lumbar radiculopathy: The irritation is caused by discs between the vertebrae taking on damage. This is usually attributed to degeneration over time, but can also happen due to an accident. The wear and tear of the discs overtime are not something that can be prevented, but your doctor can discuss treatment options with you.

While there are other causes of lower back pain, these tend to be very common.
