Back pain can occur in women of Mature age, but very often young people. Can be pulling or pain in the nature, aggravated by movement and bending. The reason pulling pain in the lower back of women in many, the pain may be a manifestation of some disease, and can be triggered by completely different factors.
Back problem is the most common cause of back pain in the lumbar region
When back pain is logical to first think about the condition of the joints and the spine.
The density of bones determines its strength. After 30 years decreases, which is associated with hormonal changes in the woman's body and metabolic disorders. It is for this reason that this phenomenon occurs in women 5 times more than the male population.
In osteoporosis the bone becomes porous, brittle. There is a high risk of serious fractures, even with a minor fall in which the elderly person can stay in bed.
In the elderly the density of bones decreases usually because of the deficiency of calcium and hormonal deficiency – senile or osteoporosis senile. One of the most common symptoms is pain in the lumbar region. It is also possible curvature of the spine, the deterioration of the posture. The disease is usually detected when referring the patient to the doctor about broken bones. If you had more than two fractures in a row means that the probability of the presence of osteoporosis.
In the preventive purposes to women after 45-50 years recommended assessment of bone density a study that identified mineral mass and bone density.
In the treatment of osteoporosis are used calcium supplements and vitamin D, which helps absorb the calcium in the body. Also adjust the diet, nutrition and physical activity.
The defeat of the joints-damaged cartilage is called osteoarthritis. The disease progresses slowly, acquiring a chronic character. The destruction of cartilage is irreversible and leads to deformations of all the elements of the joint - arthrosis.
If the pathological process occurs in the region of the lumbosacral, his call was spondilo-arthrosis. At the edges of the affected joints are formed osteophytes, affecting many nerve endings in the bottom of the back. The result is a pain syndrome can develop so that the person loses the capacity to work and forced to be on disability the rest of his life.
In women, the disease occurs as a result of internal and external factors:
- injuries of the joints;
- the excess load when the practice of sports or professional;
- excess weight increases the strain on the joints;
- the hormonal changes;
- violation of the metabolism.
Risk Factors is and genetic predisposition. Also the probability of deformation of the joints increases with age.
In women after of 50 years of age is the factor, combined with the menopause, worsening of degenerative processes in bone tissue. If the cause is determined, the osteoarthritis is secondary. If it has its origin is not clear why it was called primary.
Because to rebuild damaged cartilage and reverse the structural changes in the joints without surgery is impossible, conservative treatment for osteoarthritis is aimed at load reduction and the regulation of metabolic processes in the bone tissue.
You need to get rid of excess weight, avoid heavy lifting in the acute phase of the disease in order to comply with the floor bed. Apply the analgesics and anti-inflammatory.
Arthritis is called the inflammation in the joints. Arthritis have very similar symptoms, the mechanisms, the manifestations and the causes of osteoarthritis. The difference lies in the severity of the inflammation. For arthritis pain initially arises from inflammation of a joint, and at the end of the period in the chronic form progresses, the deformation, wear and tear of the cartilage, the immobility of the joints.
The inflammation is often acute, is manifested in the result of the precipitating factors (hypothermia, carrying heavy loads, SARS). To relieve the inflammation and relieve the condition to help heat ointments and gels, the charge and the reduction of the activity in the period of exacerbation.
Regular back pain can be a result of the degeneration of the intervertebral discs – osteochondrosis. When lumbar osteochondrosis flat and depleted disks compress blood vessels and nerve endings in the lumbar region of the spine.
Together with the restriction of the mobility of the spine in women there are other symptoms and complicationsassociated with impaired blood circulation:
- the failure of the menstrual cycle;
- aggravation of varicose veins;
- cold, tingling, the tingling in the lower extremities;
- sleep disturbance, fatigue;
- the interruption of the operation of the system urogenital.
If you suspect that osteoarthritis to confirm the diagnosis, prescribe x-rays of the lumbar region or computed tomography. If the disease is identified, establish the causes. Are the same as those of osteoarthritis.
Chagas disease leads to the destruction of the vertebrae, the process becomes chronic and irreversible. To stop the progression of the disease and reduce pain, in addition to the standard equipment for the special support corsets orthopedic with rigid inserts.
Common complication of degenerative disc disease is an inflammation of the bundles of nerve fibers between the vertebrae – sciatica.
Sciatica can occur for other reasons:
- sedentary lifestyle;
- to do intense exercise;
- strong tensions;
The pain in this disease is strong, increases with the change of position, sneezing, coughing. This disease can manifest itself throughout life. Drug therapy is a significant effect does not, so women often turn to folk remedies: sauna, hot compresses and polishing, a belt made of wool, herbal infusions.
Acute lower back pain can be the result of a herniated discoccurs when the displacement of the disc between the vertebrae and nerve roots pinched them. The appearance of the hernias because of the curvature of the spine, osteochondrosis, trauma, tumors, tuberculosis.
In a first stage – in a few years the pain may be boring and dropped at the position of the supine. With the increase of the hernia, the character of the pain changes – it becomes in the shooting and pain, spreading to the pelvis and lower extremities. Because of the constant pain spazmiruyutsya muscles, helps you stretch, the development bias of the back stoop.
If you don't pay attention to a herniated disc and run it, which can lead to the death of the spinal cord and paralysis.
As a result of all the list of diseases of the back can occur in the lower part of the back, lumbago – lumbalgia. This acute pain, which lasts for a couple of weeks, brings us to the beginning of the disability.
Diseases of internal organs, system, urogenital
Lower back can hurt, not only from-for problems with the joints and the spine. In the lumbar region is located in the kidneys, and, therefore, the inflammatory processes that occur in them, and in the urinary tract can be given back. This usually happens when exacerbation of pyelonephritis and urolithiasis and is characterized by pain pain.
Among the few causes of pain, but still found are: pancreatitis acute, aortic aneurysm.
Gynecological nature of back pain is manifested in endometriosis – inflammation of the membrane lining of the uterus. This pathology may be accompanied by violation of the cycle, bloody discharge, drawing pains in the abdomen.
When these reasons the treatment is not aimed at the lumbar region, and in particular ingiving a pain effect.
Does not have back pain as a result of pathological processes. Women are so manifest and physiological changes in the body.
Occur during pregnancy and obstetric related causes of back pain:
- the hormonal changes;
- the divergence of the bones of the symphysis;
- the threat of abortion;
- the increase of body weight;
- the pressure of the uterus on the nerve endings of the spinal column;
- false labor pains;
- the beginning of birth.

Back pain with menstruation is a natural phenomenon. They were influenced by hormonal changes in the body. Before the start of the critical days, the lower part of the back can be bad due to accumulation of tissue fluid and formation of edema.
Someone seems to be a gift of nature, and for someone source of problems. The chest of the fourth and more dimensions has a solid weight.
To keep him standing, the spine, ligaments and muscles of the back are constantly in the time. This "training" is not useful, it creates an unusual tension in the joints, causing can develop new problems mentioned above.
The overweight is a big test for the spine and other bones. This affects negatively the condition of the cartilage and the health of the intervertebral discs. In obese women there is always a chronic joint disease, and sometimes a lot. With get rid of the excess weight begins treatment of osteochondrosis, arthritis, arthrosis, sciatica.
Menopause plays a very important role in the condition of the joints. Women who already have back problems, which are aggravated. Those who are able to avoid joint problems in youth, in old age no doubt have to deal with them.
Estrogen and progesterone are the main female hormones. During the high point of its development is considerably reduced, and rebuilds the entire body.

It is of great importance for the prevention of diseases of the back, including the curvature of the spine. Also straight posture ensures the normal circulation and nutrition of the bones that allows you to activate metabolic processes, cell renewal, permanently preserve youth and health.
A cold can cause inflammation, such as joints and internal organs – kidneys, uterus. When the complications can be the chronic diseases. Therefore, the mothers always teach their daughters to take care of currents of air, the cold wind and not to sit on cold surfaces.
Beauty requires sacrifice, but the sacrifice of wear heels can be high. Crooked toes, heel spurs and, of course, the problems of the spine – that is what awaits the trendy and stylish girls in high heels.
Constant wearing of high heel and therefore uncomfortable shoes , causes a deformation of the joints of the ankle and of the foot. Whereby during walking the load is poorly distributed throughout the skeleton, including the spine.
Lifting, loading heavy loads
Be pulled back easily at the time of transfer or renewal, helping her husband carry the heavy furniture and bags of plaster. Women rarely save themselves, and as a result health suffers.
When lifting weights it is sprain of the back. Acute pain may occur due to flow some chronic back problems, the aggravation of which led to a heavy loads.
Moderate physical activity, walking outdoors, swimming pool, the correct mode of work and rest will help to eliminate negative factors and prevent back pain.
