Pain Mamagement & Causes of Back Pain

Understanding the underlying causes of back pain is crucial in developing targeted treatment plans. Our experts have extensive knowledge of the various factors that contribute to back pain, including:

Muscle Strains and Sprains

Overexertion, improper lifting techniques, or sudden movements can strain or sprain the muscles and ligaments in the back, leading to acute pain.

Herniated or Bulging Discs

When the gel-like material within the spinal discs protrudes or leaks, it can compress nearby nerves and cause localized or radiating pain.

Spinal Stenosis

Narrowing of the spinal canal or nerve root canals can lead to pressure on the spinal cord or nerves, resulting in chronic back pain and discomfort.

Degenerative Disc Disease

As we age, the intervertebral discs can degenerate, causing chronic back pain, reduced flexibility, and limited mobility.


The breakdown of cartilage in the spine can cause pain, stiffness, and inflammation in the back.

Lower Back Pain Types of Diagnoses and Conditions

At Kennedy Health Clinic, we offer comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of back pain conditions. Our specialists are skilled in identifying and addressing the following diagnoses:


Compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve can result in radiating pain, numbness, and tingling sensations traveling from the lower back down to the legs.


This condition occurs when one vertebra slips forward or backward onto the bone below it, leading to lower back pain and potential nerve compression.

Muscle Imbalances and Postural Issues

Poor posture, weak core muscles, and muscle imbalances can contribute to chronic back pain and discomfort.

Facet Joint Syndrome

Dysfunction or inflammation of the facet joints, located on the back of the spine, can cause localized back pain and restricted movement.

Pain may be felt in specific areas of the back or may radiate to other parts of the body, such as the buttocks, hips, or legs.

Stiffness and Reduced Flexibility

Back pain can lead to stiffness, making it difficult to perform daily activities or engage in physical movements.

Muscle Spasms

Painful muscle spasms in the back can result from muscle strains or underlying musculoskeletal conditions.

Numbness and Tingling

Compression of nerves in the back can cause sensations of numbness, tingling, or a “pins-and-needles” feeling.
