  • the offset of the vertebrae;
  • congenital malformations of (the availability of incremental lumbar vertebrae, spina bifida);
  • a congenital disorder of the shape of the vertebrae;
  • benign, malignant and vascular tumors;
  • rheumatism;
  • inflammation of muscles (myositis);
  • inflammation of the sciatic nerve;
  • fractures of the spine;
  • spondilolistezom;
  • osteomyelitis;
  • fibrositis;
  • osteoporosis;
  • protrusion of the disk;
  • narrowing of the spinal canal;
  • osteoarthritis;
  • renal disease (hydronephrosis, pyelonephritis, tumors).

The spine in the lower back can hurt because of a simple muscle spasm. It is possible during heavy cornering or performing athletic exercises.

If you constantly sore shoulders behind you, then it may be a manifestation of degenerative disc disease of the lumbar-sacral spine. It is a disease which mainly affects the discs between the vertebrae. Dwindling, which leads to friction between them and reduce the motility of the disk. Issue the following predisposing factors for developing this disease:

  • stay spend hours in an uncomfortable position;
  • the long slopes of the fuselage;
  • lack of exercise in physical education classes;
  • weakness in the muscles and the ligaments of the back;
  • wear backpacks on the 1 strap;
  • the availability of flat feet;
  • heavy physical work;
  • the larger the static load;
  • improper arrangement of the working places.

Back pain is a major sign of degenerative disc disease. At 1 stage of the disease a painful missing. During the development of the protrusion of the disc develops lumbago. Is suddenly emerging pain in the lower back. Some people feel it as a blow to electric shock. It appears when a sharp change in position or while moving.

If the back hurts in the lumbar, then the cause may be lumbalgie. It's a chronic pain in osteochondrosis of the. Its appearance is not dependent on the physical activity of a person. The pain is aching. To such people it is difficult to bend the body. In the position the man lies on his back, a painful disappears or decreases.

In osteochondrosis of the 3 degrees develops root syndrome. It manifests itself lumborum ischialgia. It's a pain, that gives in the lower limb up to the fingers, feet. Often this is combined with impaired sensitivity. Discomfort in the lumbar driven by the compression of nerves, blood vessels and muscle spasm.

Symptoms of a hernia

The doctor

If troubled by back pain, the causes may be in the intervertebral hernia. It is a very common disease. At her core disk of the vertebra is displaced. Often on the background of this happening is the difference of the fibrous rings. Prevalence is 150 cases per 100 thousand people. Issued the following possible causes of hernia:

  • injuries (bruises, fall);
  • osteochondrosis of the lumbar-sacral department;
  • overweight;
  • the curvature of the spinal column;
  • the sharp turns.

In the risk group includes drivers and administrative staff who work at the computer. Pain when the hernia has the following features:

  • is a local;
  • it often gives to the thigh, buttocks and lower limbs;
  • in combination with other symptoms (numbness, tingling);
  • is amplified during physical exertion.

The severity of the pain syndrome is defined by the value of a hernia. If is large, then it can develop nerve. It is manifested by sciatica. Is it a strong pain in the form of lumbagoes.

In the majority of patients hernia develops pain according to the type of lumbago. The other symptoms of a hernia include a reduction of potency, limitation of motion of the lower back, weakness in the legs. Sometimes it is disturbed by urination.

  • inflammation of the organs of the urinary system;
  • hypothermia;
  • injuries to the bones;

  • infection.

Disease ankylosing Spondylitis occurs predominantly in younger persons aged 15 to 40 years. This pathology manifests itself in the joint and no joint symptoms. Back pain and stiffness of the spine are considered the most early symptom. Pain in the lumbar-sacral department. In the early stages it is expressed weakly. Its emergence is caused by inflammation.

Plan a survey of patients

Not everyone knows what to do when back hurts in the area of the lumbar. It is necessary to visit a doctor and undergo examination. You will need the following studies:

  • computed tomography;
  • radiography of the lumbar-sacral spine;
  • ULTRASOUND of the kidneys;
  • magnetic resonance imaging;
  • electroneuromyography;
  • Doppler of blood vessels;
  • general and biochemical analysis of blood;
  • analysis of the urine;
  • cystourethrography.

Necessarily performed the inspection and palpation of the lumbar region and the spine. Requires the advice of a neurologist or vertebrologist. Upon examination, the doctor assesses the mobility of the spine, reflexes, muscle strength, range of motion in the limbs. Almost always is the cause of back pain are diseases of the spine. It is easy to identify on the image.

In severe cases surgery is required. When the pain on the background of sciatica treatment includes immobilization of the spine, the use of pain medications and intramuscular introduction of the anesthetic. In addition, there are vitamins of group B (Combilipen).

Effective and physiotherapy. If there is a degenerative disc disease shows kinesitherapy, massage, intake of pain medication, physical therapy. I'm sure they are appointed chondroprotectors.
