What causes low back pain near Olney, MD?

The majority of low back pain is mechanical in nature. The back is a very structured set of bones, joints, ligaments and muscles. It is easy to sprain ligaments and strain your muscles. Ruptured (herniated) disks, irritated nerves and grinding joints can cause back pain. When injuries or accidents occur, it can lead to pain in the lower back. Overuse injuries are a common source of lower back pain and stiffness. Chronic pain includes:

  •  Spondylosis is the often preventable wear and tear on your spine as you age. This includes bone spurs, disc thinning and joint degeneration. It makes it hard for your joints and ligaments to keep your spine in the correct position.
  • Spondylolisthesis is when a vertebra moves or slips forward more than it should due to injury or moderate to severe degeneration. When this happens, the joints will come under excessive pressure and the bones will press on the spinal nerves creating lower back pain.
  • Healed Vertebral fractures
  • Spinal Stenosis is a narrowing of the spine space around the spinal cord that can put pressure on the nerves. The narrowing is caused by bone spurs that have developed as a result of osteoarthritis.
  • Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine that can cause back pain.
  • Disc Tear (annular fibers tear)
  • Disc Herniation: A rupture of the inner material of the intervertebral disk called the nucleus pulposus. Pressure from the vertebrae above and below the disk squeeze the cushioning substance out of the disk. The nucleus pulposus can press against spinal nerve roots which can cause pain and nerve damage if not treated properly.
