Spinal stenosis, osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease and deformity are other causes of low back pain.
Amir Mahajer, Interventional Spine Specialist at Baptist Health Neuroscience Center, says osteoarthritis happens to all humans on earth and it starts at the age of 30.
WE HAVE AN IMAGE TO SHOW YOU ON GOOD POSTURE AND HOW TO LIFT CORRECTLY. OK. I THINK WE WENT OVER THESE, THESE ARE THE SPRAINS AND STRAINS, LIFTING HEAVY WE HAVE OTHER THINGS THAT CAUSE LOWER BACK PAIN LIKE SPINAL STENOSIS, OSTEOARTHRITIS, DEGENERATIVE DISK DISEASE, DEFORMITY, TELL ME ABOUT THOSE, DOCTOR. IN GENERAL YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT MULTIPLE THINGS GOING ON HERE, OSTEOARTHRITIS, SPINAL STENOSIS, NOW WE’RE GOING TO A DEGENERATED SPINE. I WANT TO PUT AWAY NOTIONS IN THE BEGINNING. OSTEOARTHRITIS HAPPENS TO ALL HUMANS ON THE EARTH AND WE’LL ALL GET IT AND STARTS BY AGE 30 AND YOU’RE GUARANTEED TO HAVE IT AT 60. WHAT IS IT? OSTEOARTHRITIS IS A OVERGROWTH OF BONE, SOFT TISSUE DEGENERATION AND ONCE YOU HAVE THE OVERGROWTH IT GENERALLY DOESN’T CAUSE ANY PROBLEMS HOWEVER IN THE SPINE YOU HAVE THE NERVES EXITING A SPINAL CORD RUNNING DOWN THE CENTER. SO WHEN THE BONE OVERGROWS, THE HOLES THE NERVE TRAVERSES THROUGH OR GOES THROUGH BECOMES MORE NARROW, SO AS THE SENSITIVE OR VULNERABLE NERVE IS GOING THROUGH AND YOU HAVE A BONE OVERGROWTH, IT’S MORE PRONE TO BE PINCHED. WHAT ABOUT NERVE DAMAGE OR PINCHED NERVE? THAT’S ALSO VERY COMMON. WE TALK ABOUT THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF LOW BACK PAIN AND WE HAVE NONSPECIFIC AXIAL LOW BACK PAIN OR RIDICULAR PAIN THAT RUNS DOWN THE LEG COMMONLY CALLED SCIATICA AND WOULD BE THE PINCHED NERVE AND HAPPENS COMMONLY LIKE AXIAL LOW BACK PAIN MANY TIMES IMPROVES WITHIN 4-6 WEEKS SUCH AS EXERCISE OR WALKING OR MEDICATIONS LIKE AN IBUPROFEN PRODUCT AS LONG AS YOU HAVE NO CARDIAC OR RENAL KIDNEY PROBLEMS
