What are the causes of Chronic Back Pain?
Nothing keeps you from leading a healthy and active life quite like chronic back pain does. Unfortunately, chronic back pain is fairly common and can occur for a variety of reasons. Some of the most common causes of lower back pain include:
- Sitting or remaining stagnant for a majority of the day
- Herniated disc
- Muscle strain
- Degenerative disc disease
- Slipped vertebra
- Joint disease
- Injury as the result of an accident
Do You Need A Pain Doctor?
Adults under the age of age 60 typically experience muscle strain in the back or strain of another soft tissue that supports the spine. People who are over age 60 are more likely to deal with spinal stenosis or osteoarthritis, both of which are a form of joint degeneration.
Compression fractures are also common for people in their senior years. Fortunately, our back specialists can help you find pain relief for chronic pain, regardless of the original causes or the current level of severity.
