“Oh, my aching (lower) back!” If you haven’t uttered these words yourself, the odds are high that you’ve heard someone you love say them. It’s estimated that 80 percent of adults experience low back pain at some point in their lives. It’s a major reason why workers call off sick and the most common reason for job-related disabilities.
At Kayal Pain & Spine Center, our skilled team of specialists understands lower back pain. We offer the most comprehensive and state-of-the-art pain management care available in Bergen County and beyond.
Lower back pain doesn’t discriminate. It affects both men and women equally. It can vary in degree from a dull, persistent ache to sharp, sudden stabs of pain that can be crippling. It can happen suddenly during an accident, when lifting something heavy or when shifting your body quickly. Or it can happen slowly over time through wear and tear or age-related changes to your spine. Inactivity is another cause of lower back pain.
There are three types of lower back pain. Acute pain (usually lasts only a few days or a few weeks), subacute pain (lasts four to 12 weeks) and chronic pain (lasts 12 weeks or longer). The experts at Kayal Pain & Spine Center have the skills and experience to diagnose, treat and manage your lower back pain. They will pinpoint the cause and set you on the path to healing relief quickly and compassionately. Our team insists on a patient-focused approach to care and treatment. We’ll answer all of your questions and work closely with you to explain every step of your treatment plan.
Low back pain is caused by a number of things, including spondylosis, degeneration of the spine caused by normal wear and tear on the bones, discs and joints as you age. Most lower back pain is mechanical, including sprains and strains, disc degeneration, herniated discs, ruptured discs, radiculopathy, sciatica, spinal stenosis and spondylolisthesis. It can also be caused by infections, tumors, arthritis and other inflammatory joint diseases, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, endometriosis, kidney stones and abdominal aortic aneurysms.
There are certain risk factors that make you more susceptible to lower back pain. They include:
