Arthritis can cause joint pain and stiffness. Some forms of arthritis can affect the spine. Osteoarthritis, the most common, breaks down the cartilage that cushions the bones where they meet. Other forms may also cause back pain.
Many conditions, such as herniated discs, sciatica and spinal stenosis, can cause back pain. Lower back pain may be related to the sciatic nerve.
A compression fracture occurs when the vertebrae (small bones in the spine) weaken and break. The pain may last for several weeks or more.
Healthy discs help cushion the bones in the spine and support movement. If these rubbery discs break down, you may lose flexibility and feel pain and stiffness.
Herniated disc happens when one of the discs between the spinal bones starts to tear, and the softer center of the disc pushes outwards.
Osteoporosis causes your bones to weaken, which can make them break more easily. Your treatment may combine lifestyle changes, diet, exercise and medicine to slow bone loss and make your bones stronger.
Radiculopathy includes symptoms such as pain or numbness caused by a pinched nerve in the lower, middle or upper spine.
Spinal stenosis refers to narrowing of the space around the spinal cord. This puts pressure on the spinal cord and nerves.
Spondylolysis is a crack or stress fracture in a bone in the spine. If the bone weakens and slips out of place, the condition is spondylolisthesis. Both conditions are common among children and teens who take part in certain sports.
Synovial cysts are fluid-filled sacs that most often affect the lower spine. They sometimes press on the spinal nerves and lead to spinal stenosis.
Tumors on the spine may be cancerous or noncancerous. Cancerous tumors need to be treated. Noncancerous tumors may need to be removed if they grow too large or cause pain.
