- Osteoporosis (decreased density of bones)! If your bones become brittle & porous, there is a chance for compression fractures of the spine’s vertebrae to occur.
- Arthritis – a health problem that typically affects the joints of bone. Back pain (particularly lower back pain) can occur in people with osteoarthritis (one of major types of arthritis).
- Ruptured /bulging disks! Disks have crucial function as cushions for each bone in the spine. If there are some bulging /ruptured disks, this can lead to back pain. But many cases of disk disease are diagnosed accidentally. In other words, many people with ruptured /bulging disks don’t experience back pain or other specific symptoms. As a result, they often don’t realize when they have disk disease until they undergo spine scanning test for another reason.
- Skeletal irregularities (a condition when the spine curves in the abnormal position /in the wrong way). A severe scoliosis (it occurs when the spine curves to the side) often causes back pain.
- Ligament /muscle strain! This can occur if you get a sudden awkward or repeated heavy lifting, particularly if you are being at unhealthy or in poor physical condition.
