Low Back Pain – Causes and Treatment

There are many causes of low back pain. One widely known low back pain is the axial back pain, which is related to the normal wear and tear that occurs in the joints, discs, and bones of the spine— occurs most commonly. It is generally characterized by pain found in the lower back typically around the belt line. Axial back pain can also cause excruciating pain down the thighs.

Another common cause of back pain is the compression of nerves in the spinal canal and as they exit. This is called spinal stenosis. Pain due to stenosis “narrowing” generally presents as back pain and leg pain. The leg pain is often referred to as sciatica and often travels down a pathway that is determined by which nerve is being compressed (dermatome). This pain is generally caused by herniated discs, or narrowing of the spinal canal due to arthritis.

Another common cause of back pain is sacro-ilitis, which is inflammation of the SI joint. This pain presents very similar to axial back pain, and for that reason is often misdiagnosed. There are several physical exam findings that help us differentiate where the pain comes from, but often diagnostic blocks with local anesthetics are required to help us properly diagnose the cause of your back pain.

While these are the more common causes of back pain, there are several others that can cause significant pain and impairment. These include infection, tumors, kidney stones, fibromyalgia, sprains, endometriosis, and pain after back surgery.
