This is a common condition that affects the lower part of the spine. It can be caused by various factors, such as injury, arthritis, disk problems, or spinal stenosis.
This is an injury to the muscles, tendons, or ligaments in the lower back. It can result from lifting heavy objects, twisting, or bending awkwardly. The pain can be sudden or gradual and may cause spasms and soreness in the back.
This is like lumbar strain but involves damage to the ligaments that connect the bones in the spine. It can also result from trauma or overuse of the lower back.
This is a condition where one or more of the joints between the vertebrae in the lower back become stiff or locked. It can cause reduced mobility and pain in the back.
A posture disorder that results from muscle imbalances in the lower body. It is characterized by an anterior pelvic tilt (hips tilted forward), a swayback posture (excessive curve in the lower back), and weak abdominal and gluteal muscles. Lower crossed syndrome can cause low back pain, hip pain, knee pain, and hamstring strains. It can be caused by prolonged sitting, poor ergonomics, or lack of exercise.
This is a degenerative condition that affects the joints and disks in the lower back. It can cause stiffness, pain, and reduced mobility in the spine. It can be caused by aging, genetics, or lifestyle factors (such as obesity or smoking).
This is a condition where one or more of the intervertebral discs that cushion the vertebrae in the spine protrude out of their normal position. It can put pressure on nearby nerves and cause pain that radiates to other parts of the body (such as buttocks or legs).
These are tender spots in tight bands of muscle fibers in the lower back. They can cause local or referred pain in other areas of the body (such as abdomen or groin). They can be caused by stress, overuse, injury, or poor posture.
This is a narrowing of the spinal canal in the lower back. It can compress the spinal cord or nerve roots and cause symptoms such as numbness, tingling, weakness, or pain that radiates to other parts of the body (such as buttocks or legs). It can be caused by aging, arthritis, disk problems, tumors, or injuries.
This is pain that originates from the sacroiliac joint, which connects the sacrum (the lowest part of the spine) to the pelvis. It can cause low back pain that may also affect the buttocks, hips, groin, or legs. It can be caused by inflammation, infection, trauma, pregnancy, arthritis, or dysfunction of the joint.
This is a condition where one or both of the sacroiliac joints become stiff or locked. It can cause reduced mobility and pain in the back. Occasionally it can refer pain to the groin or down the leg.
