Pain in the Lumbar Spine

Dr. Jose Mena, Interventional Spine Specialist with Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, says in the spine the most common affected parts would be the second or the last two levels, because 75% of the stress from the spine comes from the L5 level.

He explains the pain is age-related, because with the wear and tear, the spine can degenerate, and also genetic competitions can play a factor.
