The causes of back pain are many. The back is made up of tendons, ligaments, muscles and bones. They work together to support our body and help us move around. An issue with any of these can result in back pain. 

त्रिकशूललक्षणमाहस्फिगस्थ्नोः पृष्ठवंशास्थ्नोर्यः सन्धिस्तत्रिकं मतम् । तत्र वातेन या पीड़ा त्रिकशूलं तदुच्यते ॥११५॥ श्रोणि प्रदेश की दोनों अस्थियों तथा पृष्ठ वंश की दो अस्थियों की जो सन्धि है उसे त्रिक कहते हैं। इस त्रिकस्थान बात से जो पीड़ा होती है उसे त्रिकशूल कहते है।।११५।।

Strain of Back Pain:

The strain on the back or any of its component can be a result of lifting a heavy load without precaution or making an abrupt or an awkward movement. It can be due to –

  • Stretched muscles or strained ligaments.
  • Muscle spasm or tension
  • Injured or degenerated disks
  • Injury
  • Structural problems
  • Ruptured or bulging disks.

Our spine is made of interlocked vertebrae with disks, which are areas of tissue acting as cushions. These disks can swell, injure or herniate and even rupture with age, or injury. This can compress the surrounding nerves and cause back pain.

  • Sciatica – This is caused by a herniated disk or bulging disk pressing on. The lower back pain can be accompanied by a sharp pain that travels through the buttock down the back of the leg.
  • Arthritis – Osteoarthritis is a primary reason for pain in the lower back in the elderly
  • Abnormal spine curvature – An abnormal curvature of the spine can often cause back pain. It can be a result of sitting stooped for a long time and incorrect posture, among other reasons.
  • Osteoporosis – The vertebrae of the spine deteriorate with age. This leads to osteoporosis. This is one of the causes of back pain.
  • Kidney problems – Kidney stones or an infection can also result in back pain.

Posture and Sudden Movements


A poor posture or sudden abrupt movements like twisting, coughing, sneezing, and over-stretching can often result in back pain. Additionally, bending awkwardly, carrying something improperly, straining the neck forward, sitting in the same position without support for a long time, and sleeping in an improper manner can also be a cause for your back pain.

causes of Back Pain


There are other rare causes for back pain which can only be diagnosed by your doctor. Some of the likely culprits are-

  • Degenerative spondylolisthesis, in which one vertebra gets displaced onto the other
  • Cauda equine syndrome, which is caused when the nerves at the bottom of the spinal cord lose nerve function.
  • Infection of the spine can cause back pain along with fever. In rare cases, it might be a tumor that is pressing against your spinal nerves, causing back pain.
  • Other infections like pelvic diseases, bladder and kidney infections can also cause back pain.
  • People with sleep disorders can also suffer from back pain.

Symptoms of Back Pain:


  • Back pain symptoms can range from mild to severe.
  • The main symptom is a dull aching sensation in the lower back, which can at times go down to buttocks.
  • A stabbing or shooting pain that radiates down the leg from your buttocks.
  • Inability to stand up straight
  • Decreased and painful movement and diminished ability to move the back.
  • If strained or a pulled muscle is the cause, the pain is short-lived and goes away on its own. The discomfort can be further eased by using topical over the counter creams like Move.
  • However, when the symptoms do not subside over time, it is advised to see a doctor.

The symptoms are severe when back pain is accompanied by the following symptoms:-


  • Weight loss
  • Fever
  • Swelling on the back
  • Pain that goes beyond the knees
  • Pain when urinating
  • Loss of control over bowel movements
  • Numbness around genitals or buttocks

Back Pain Ayurvedic Treatment


  • Back pain can be treated after identifying the cause.
  • If the back pain is mild, it can be resolved using medications like anti-inflammatory drugs, pain killers and over the counter topical creams and sprays. You can also use a hot or a cold compress on the affected area to reduce the pain.
  • Take adequate rest. However, careful movement can also help ease stiffness and free the muscles.

Test Suggested:




  • These images show the alignment of your bones and whether you have arthritis or broken bones. These images alone won’t show problems with your spinal cord, muscles, nerves or disks.
  • MRI or CT scans. These scans generate images that can reveal herniated disks or problems with bones, muscles, tissue, tendons, nerves, ligaments and blood vessels.
  • Blood tests. 



These can help determine whether you have an infection or other condition that might be causing your pain.

  • Bone scan  
  • In rare cases, use a bone scan to look for bone tumors or compression fractures caused by osteoporosis.
  • Nerve studies
  • Electromyography (EMG) measures the electrical impulses produced by the nerves and the responses of your muscles

Medication in Modern Science


  • Back pain is originating in the spinal area, you might be given cortisone injections in the epidermal tissue around the spinal cord.
  • It is an anti-inflammatory drug, which numbs the painful area.
