Why Does My Lower Back Hurt?

Common Causes of Lower Back Pain

Part of the reason lower back pain affects so many people is that it can stem from a wide variety of problems, including:

  • Spinal disc issues (Herniated, slipped, bulging, or degenerative discs)
  • Other spinal disorders (Inflammation of the sacroiliac joint (the point where the spine and pelvis connect), spinal stenosis, spinal bones slipping out of place (spondylolisthesis), arthritis, pinched nerves, bone spurs, tumors in the spine, infected discs)
  • Car accident injuries (Strained or fractured muscles, ligaments, tendons, and vertebrae)
  • Muscle spasms
  • Lifestyle choices (Lack of exercise, being significantly overweight, smoking)
  • Wearing high heels or shoes without proper support
  • Pregnancy
  • Kidney problems (Stones, infections, and general kidney failure)

Back pain can also be caused by something as simple as poor posture or a habitually remaining sedentary for long periods of time. In some cases, lower back pain can even stem from high stress or seem more intense due to emotional distress.
