Other Risk Factors Associated with Lower Back Pain

 

  • Age: back pain becomes more frequent with advancing age. As people age, loss of bone strength from osteoporosis can lead to fractures, and muscles lose their elasticity and tone decreases. The discs begin to lose water contents and flexibility, which diminishes their ability to cushion the vertebrae.

 

  • Poor Fitness and Weight gain: Back pain is more common among people who are not physically fit. Weak back and abdominal muscles may not properly support the spine. People who make moderate physical activity a daily habit are less likely to suffer from back pain. Overweight state and obesity can put stress on the back and lead to lower back pain.

 

  • Genetics: Back pain can be caused by certain inherited forms of arthritis that involves fusion of the spinal joints leading to some immobility of the spine, as well as other genetic ligament and muscle conditions.

 

  • Psychological stressors: Mental health problems such as anxiety and depression can impact perception of back pain and its severity. Pain that becomes chronic also can contribute to the development of depression. Stress can affect the body in multiple ways, including causing muscle tension which leads to back pain.
