Low Back Pain Q & A

What is low back pain?

If you suffer from low back pain, you’re not alone. Low back pain is the leading cause of job-related disability and one of the most common reasons men and women seek treatment at Corner Canyon Pain and Medicine.

Low back pain occurs in your lumbar spine and may range in intensity from a dull ache to a sharp, stabbing pain that puts you out of action. Back pain that persists longer than 12 weeks is considered chronic.  

What causes low back pain?

The most common causes of short-term (acute) back pain are sprains and strains. Sprains occur when ligaments become overstretched or torn, and strains involve tears in your tendons or muscles.

Other common causes of low back pain include:

  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Sciatica
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Skeletal irregularities like scoliosis
  • Traumatic injuries, such as car accident injuries

Certain medical conditions, like arthritis, can cause inflammation in the vertebrae that leads to back pain.
