Back pain can be caused by a number of factors such as injuries, arthritis and the effects of aging, osteoporosis, disc degeneration and fractures. Aging and inherited factors can cause degenerative changes in the disc as well as arthritic changes in the small joints. Osteoporosis causes bones to lose strength over time. This could lead to a fractured or compressed vertebrae from a fall or even from everyday activities. Low back pain is a universal human experience -- almost everyone has it at some point. The lower back, which starts below the ribcage, is called the lumbar region. Pain here can be intense and is one of the top causes of missed work. Fortunately, low back pain often gets better on its own. When it doesn't, there are effective treatments.
