Lower Back Injuries
Back pain can be particularly difficult to diagnose due to the complexity and the number of structures and tissues in the lower back that can cause pain. The most common causes are slipped discs and this can sometimes cause leg pain called Sciatica. In addition, scoliosis, spinal canal stenosis, spondylytis, spondylolisthesis, spondylolysis, spondylosis, transverse process fracture, facet joint pain and more.
A Coccydynia is a type of tailbone pain, as is coccygodynia. It is five times more common in women than men.
The facet joints, also known as zygapophysial joints are synovial joints which help support the weight and control movement between individual vertebrae of the spine.
