Back Pain CausesBack Pain

Low back pain can often be attributed to complex origins and symptoms, and it does not discriminate. It can originate from identified muscle trauma, or an unknown non-traumatic event. Low back pain can also begin in other regions of the body and eventually attack the muscles or other structures in the lower back. Sometimes low back pain can even begin in the nerves or nervous system. Other origins for low back pain are postneural difficulties, congenital disorders, trauma, infections, degenerative disorders, inflammatory diseases, circulatory disorders or any of other 30 additional causes.

It is often difficult for physicians to pinpoint the exact cause of a patient's low back pain, because of the complex composition of the human spine. Bone, discs, muscles, ligaments, tendons and various other tissues are arranged like a three-dimensional puzzle to make up the spine. The complex make up can easily mask the exact cause of low back pain.

Where Back Pain Starts

In addition, depression, anxiety, frustration, reinforcement, stress, anger, fear and many other psychological states can help to cause the onset of back pain, can be a reaction to prolonged pain, or exist concurrently with pain.

The emotional component can complicate the back pain diagnosis, sometimes resulting in needless surgery and disability and can sometimes mask the underlying physical causes of pain.
