An estimated 80% of the population will experience back pain at some time in their lives. Among them are those seeking relief from chronic lower back pain—pain that lingers and affects daily life for three months or longer. There are a number of possible causes of lower back pain. Identifying the culprit can help you find the best lower back pain remedy.

Many Causes, One Underlying Factor

A number of conditions may be diagnosed as the cause of lower back pain, including:Diagram of Foot Impact

  • Vertebrae fractures (often the result of osteoporosis)
  • Muscle strains and ligament sprains
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Spinal stenosis (often the result of osteoarthritis)

Although there are numerous possible causes, there is often one underlying contributing factor to lower back pain—impact. Impact-induced injuries may arise because of a single traumatic blow as is often the case with car accidents and many workplace injuries. More commonly, however, impact-induced injuries develop over years from excessive impact endured when walking, running or jumping.

Excessive Impact

Every day, you take approximately 8,000 steps, and each step is a forceful collision with unforgiving surfaces like concrete and asphalt. The equivalent of twice your body weight is absorbed and transferred from your heels to ankles, knees, hips and lower back. Being overweight or having added weight because of pregnancy increases the stress load.

The human body was not designed to sustain that kind of repetitive stress, so it’s no surprise that so many Americans are looking for lower back pain relief.
