How to Eliminate Low Back Pain
The most common sources of low back pain in the general population are degenerated or injured discs; facet joint irritation, soft tissue strain (muscle, fascia, ligament, tendon) and muscle spasms. Oftentimes it is a combination of several of these.
Low back pain accompanied by buttock or leg pain indicates nerve involvement. Most of the time this pain is caused by a lumbar nerve root being compressed by some structure; usually a bulging disc or bone spur.
Less common causes of low back pain include vertebral fractures, vertebral slippage (spondylolisthesis); congenital anomalies in the spine (fused vertebrae, scoliosis) inhibiting proper joint movement; compression of spinal nerve roots from spinal stenosis (narrowing of openings through which nerve roots pass) and bone cancer and other bone pathologies. Kidney problems may refer pain to the low back as well.
