Back Pain Q & A

What causes low-back pain?

Most back pain occurs in the lower part of your back in the first five vertebrae, or the lower lumbar region. The lower back supports the weight of your upper body, so it’s common to feel pain in your lower lumbar region due to overexertion and conditions such as:

  • Muscle or tendon strains
  • Ligament sprains
  • Heavy lifting or twisting your spine improperly
  • Sports injuries
  • Age-related disc degeneration
  • Herniated discs
  • Ruptured discs
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Car accidents
  • Scoliosis
  • Sciatica
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Myofascial pain
  • Poor posture

If you have any of these issues or conditions, call right away for an appointment with Dr. Ali of Aloha Health Center in San Jose, California. You can also book an appointment online.
