When Good Backs Go Bad: Back Pain Causes
A perfectly healthy back may "go bad" slowly, over a period of many years, or in the split-second of an acute accident. If you're getting older, your back may have undergone some natural changes such as reduced intervertebral space, bulging discs, and/or arthritic facet joints in the spine. Any of these issues can cause back and stiffness in your upper, middle, or lower back. Chronic back pain may also be the end result of chronic spinal alignment problems, repetitive motion or poor posture, any of which can subject your back muscles to constant stress. Obesity can aggravate these issues, while pregnancy combines weight gain with postural changes to cause backaches.
Shifts in spinal position can also pinch the nerve roots that exit the spinal column. When sciatic nerve tissue is compressed, you may experience, not only back pain but also leg pain and other leg problems. The most dramatic examples of back pain and related neurological symptoms occur in acute injuries, which can push spinal components out of position and cause herniated discs.
