Back pain can come on suddenly and last less than six weeks
(acute), which may be caused by a fall or heavy lifting. Back pain that
lasts more than three months (chronic) is less common than acute
pain.
Back pain often develops without a specific cause that your doctor
can identify with a test or imaging study. Conditions commonly linked
to back pain include:
Muscle or ligament strain. Repeated heavy lifting or a sudden
awkward movement may strain back muscles and spinal
ligaments. If you're in poor physical condition, constant strain on
your back may cause painful muscle spasms.
Bulging or ruptured disks. Disks act as cushions between the
bones (vertebrae) in your spine. The soft material inside a disk
can bulge or rupture and press on a nerve. However, you can
have a bulging or ruptured disk without back pain. Disk disease is
often found incidentally when you undergo spine X-rays for some
other reason.
Arthritis. Osteoarthritis can affect the lower back. In some cases
arthritis in the spine can lead to a narrowing of the space around
the spinal cord, a condition called spinal stenosis.
Skeletal irregularities. Back pain can occur if your spine curves
abnormally. Scoliosis, a condition in which your spine curves to
the side, also may lead to back pain, but generally only if the
scoliosis is severe.
Osteoporosis. Your spine's vertebrae can develop compression
fractures if your bones become porous and brittle....consult orthopedic surgeon they will do the needful
