The Sciatica is another culprit of constant immobilizing pain. The sciatica describes symptoms cause when a nerve root in the lower spine is compressed, causing pain and or numbness to travel along the large sciatic nerve that serves the buttocks, legs and feet. In younger adults, sciatica can be caused by a wide range of conditions, most commonly a lumbar herniated disc or by a degenerative disc disease, isthmic spondylolisthesis and other conditions.

Lumbar degenerative disc disease can affect patients as young as twenty years old. When the lumbar discs between the vertebrae begin to break down, the damaged disc can cause both inflammation and slight instability in the lower back, bringing with it pain, muscle spasms, and sometimes sciatica. Degenerative disc disease is common and is often successfully treated.

Isthmic spondylolisthesis occurs when a vertebrae in the low back slips forward on the disc space below it. It is most common at the L5-S1 level and can cause low back pain from instability and nerve root pain due to compression of the nerve root. The fracture occurs in childhood, but normally does not create a lot of pain until the patient is in young adulthood.

When older adults can experience pain related to any of the conditions that also affects younger adults, individuals over the age of sixty are more likely to suffer from pain related to degeneration of the joints in the spine. Two of the most common causes of lower back pain in older adults include osteoarthritis and spinal stenosis.

Both spinal stenosis and degenerative spondylolisthesis can place pressure on the nerves at the point where they exit the spine. Standing upright, such as in normal walking, increases pressure on the nerve and results in leg pain.

Finally it is important to note that one’s attitude and situation also have an effect on pain levels and duration. For example, people who are depressed, under stress, or have a compensable back injury are more likely to have their pain become chronic. Patients who are stress free and have little complicating psychological factors are more likely to improve with appropriate treatment for their conditions.
