What Causes Back Pain?
From acute injury to chronic conditions, back pain can cause extreme discomfort and difficulty navigating daily life. But before we can treat it, it’s important to understand the exact cause.
Have you recently suffered a fall? Felt a sharp pain when picking something up? Or suffered a sports-related injury? Sometimes the unexpected happens, and it throws our spine out of line. A common cause of back pain in Reno, NV,, accidents can become even more problematic if not treated quickly.
One of those chronic issues possibly resulting from acute injury is a herniated disc. Between each vertebrae lies a soft disc made of cartilage, designed to support your spine through load and movement. When these tear or become otherwise injured, the supportive jelly can spill out onto the surrounding nerves, leading to localized pain.
Lifestyle and posture
Sitting at a desk all day, overuse of certain muscles, repetitive heavy lifting, and overall poor posture are nightmares for your back. With enough time, the resulting tightness can pull your joints out of alignment. In your lower back, these issues can even cause sciatica, or compression of the sciatic nerve. This nerve runs along your spine and continues down your leg, so often sciatica radiates into the legs as well.
A common problem with illness or aging, the bone, muscle, tissue and/or nerves can start to degenerate, making them weaker over time.
