Common Conditions Associated with Lower Back Pain & Their Causes

Through a combination of physical tests and imaging techniques, our chiropractor in Fremont NE frequently detects conditions such as:

  • Arthritis - inflammation of the vertebral joints
  • Muscle spasms and strains - injury to the microfibers (ligaments and tendons are also at risk)
  • Stenosis - narrowing of the canal where the spinal cord travels
  • Radiculopathy - compression of a nerve in the lower back (sciatica is a type of nerve compression affecting the sciatic nerve specifically, also occurring in the lower back)
  • Disc herniation, bulge, or degeneration - injury to a lumbar disc 
  • Joint subluxations - misalignments of the vertebral joints 

Why might such conditions occur? Common risk factors include age (especially for males between 30 and 55), occupation (physically demanding or highly sedentary), smoking, obesity, repetitive bending, lifting, or twisting, heavy lifting, or even a prior history of a back injury.

Additionally, acute incidents such as an auto accident, sports injury, or personal injury can lead to acute back pain and chronic back pain, especially if left untreated. 

Common Symptoms of Lower Back Pain

People who experience lower back pain often report that their back feels constantly dull, achy, and tender to touch. They may also notice pain, burning, numbness, tingling, and weakness extending into the buttocks, leg, and foot (particularly if a nerve is being compressed in the low back).

Many people with lower back have decreased the range of motion in their hips. They may have poor standing and sitting tolerance, as well as other types of postural abnormalities which can increase the stress in their lower back.
