What causes lower back pain?

Most cases of lower back pain are due to a mechanical issue in your body. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Intervertebral disc degeneration: wearing down of the cushion between joints
  • Herniated disc: compression of a nerve by a disc
  • Sciatica: irritation of your sciatic nerve
  • Spinal stenosis: narrowing of your spinal column


Sprains and strains of the muscles and ligaments in your back are also a common cause of lower back pain. Infection and tumors can also lead to lower back pain but are less common.

What are the symptoms of lower back pain?

Depending on the cause of your lower back pain, you may experience an array of symptoms that vary in intensity. Some of the most common symptoms include:

  • Full back pain
  • Tingling or numbness that runs down your leg
  • Stiffness or decrease in mobility
  • Muscle weakness
  • Swelling


Your pain can come on suddenly after an injury or develop slowly over time. While many cases of lower back pain resolve on their own with home care, if your back pain doesn’t improve at home or gets worse, the specialists at True Health Center can help.
