Causes of Low Back Pain
Bulging or herniated disc, spinal stenosis, spinal arthritis, vertebral fractures, osteomyelitis, spinal tumors, and spondylolisthesis are causes of low back pain. Dr. Ronald Tolchin, Medical Director of the Baptist Health Center for Spine Care, says bulging or herniated disc and spinal stenosis are very common.
He explains spinal stenosis will give you heaviness and fatigue in the legs, numbness and tingling, and difficulty walking. He points out most patients will only walk a block and then they will have to sit down for five minutes.
