Lower Back Pain Q & A

What causes lower back pain?

Lower back pain can occur anywhere along your lumbar for a variety of reasons, from injuries to chronic conditions. Some of the most common causes of lower back pain include:

  • Sciatica
  • Radiculopathy
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Ligament sprains
  • Compression fractures
  • Piriformis syndrome
  • Tendon or muscle strains
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Herniated or ruptured discs

While much less common, in some cases, lower back pain is caused by tumors or infections in your vertebrae.

When should I see a doctor for lower back pain?

Lower back pain is never something you should ignore. After all, a seemingly minor issue can quickly progress and become more serious if you don't have it treated. The pain specialists at Arlington Pain & Therapy want to evaluate you if your lower back pain is:

  • Associated with numbness or tingling in your extremities
  • Getting worse or not improving
  • Keeping you up at night
  • Affecting your job

Some causes of lower back pain, including sciatica, can lead to muscle weakness, which can ultimately make it difficult (and painful) for you to walk. If any of these issues sound familiar, book an exam at Arlington Pain & Therapy right away to get started on treatment. The pain medicine specialists can even help you if you have widespread back pain, tailbone pain, or sacroiliac joint pain.
