Additional Spinal Cord Conditions

With back pain affecting roughly eight out of every 10 individuals at one point or another, it is not surprising that the causes of that discomfort are quite varied. However, there are certain conditions which seem to cause a greater proportion of back complaints than others, and it is important for sufferers of such afflictions to gain a thorough understanding of the true source of their difficulties.

Many spinal injuries are associated with traumatic injury, but often back problems are associated with the natural wear-and-tear that comes along with the process of aging.

Degenerative disease and bone loss are often at the root of back pain, and this is true even of a broken back. While a fractured spine may conjure images of automobile accidents or sports injuries, in reality, a great many spinal fractures are simply the result of getting older.

Compression fractures, for example, are sometimes associated with trauma or even tumors, but they are most commonly the result of osteoporosis, a disease associated with bone loss that most commonly affects women over the age of 50.

Arthritis and other degenerative conditions may trigger back pain and related symptoms as well. We have built a collection of such conditions to help patients understand causes and symptoms of many common spinal injuries and painful conditions.
