Causes of Back Pain
Back pain can develop due to a variety of causes. Some common causes of back pain include:
- Sciatica, which occurs when the sciatic nerve is compressed and leads to lower back pain
- Muscle pain and spasms, often caused by sudden strains, repetitive overuse, and poor posture
- Spinal arthritis, which causes wear and tear in the spine and leads to joint space narrowing,
- associated with "wear and tear" damage in the spine causing narrowed joint spaces, thin and worn-down vertebral discs, and bony cysts
While it may not always be clear why you have back pain, chiropractic care can help identify the root cause of the discomfort and offer relief.
