Back Pain/Chronic Back Pain

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
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Facet joint Arthropathy

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 pirriformis syndrome. Treatment for lower back pain depends upon the patient's history and the type and severity of pain. Majority of lower back pain cases get better within six weeks provided they undergo a systematic evaluation that determines the underlying cause of their lower back pain and seek appropriate treatment for the same.
