Types of Back Pain and Their Causes
Lumbar back pain is experienced in the lower portion of the back and is often associated with spinal discs. Spinal discs separate the vertebrae of the spine and are soft, compressible structures. The most frequent causes of this type of lumbar pain are:
- Spinal disc degeneration and Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD)
- Herniated discs
One of the most common causes of neck and back pain is spinal facet disease and dysfunction. Spinal facet joints connect each spinal level. They stabilize the vertebral bodies and counterbalance the intervertebral discs. Because they are located on both sides of the back of each spinal segment the pain associated with spinal facets can be isolated to one side or may simultaneously affect both sides. The most common causes of pain caused by spinal facets are:
- Sports injuries
- Chronic degenerative arthritis
