Over 80% of the population will suffer from some form of lower back pain at some point in their lives. Most cases of lower back pain can be linked to a general cause – such as muscle strain, injury or overuse – or can be attributed to a specific diagnosed condition of the spine. The most common spine related conditions that cause lower back pain are:
- Herniated Disc
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Spinal Stenosis
While less common than the conditions listed above, a number of other conditions can cause low back pain as well, such as sacroiliac joint dysfunction, spinal tumors, fibromyalgia and piriformis syndrome.
