What causes spinal pain?

When the lumbar spine is strained or sprained, the soft tissues become inflamed. This inflammation causes pain and may cause muscle spasms. Even though lumbar strain or sprain can be very debilitating, neither usually requires neurosurgical attention.

Spinal pain can be caused by things more severe that might require surgical consideration. These usually involve spinal pain that radiates into arms, legs or around the rib cage from back toward the anterior chest.

Three types of muscles support the spine:

  • Extensors (back muscles and gluteal muscles)
  • Flexors (abdominal muscles and iliopsoas muscles)
  • Oblique or rotators (side muscles)
