Common Causes of Low Back Pain & Hip Pain

Low back and hip pain can affect anyone, read more below for a list of common causes and treatments. Once your chiropractor and/ or physiotherapist finds the underlying cause, they will come up with an action plan for treatment.


 Osteoarthritis can affect the hip joints and the joints in the lower back. This results from wear and tear, making it most common in people over age 40. Pain and stiffness are common symptoms

Pinched Nerve

The pain that can occur with a pinched nerve can be severe, burning, tingling and shooting. It may result from stress, sports, arthritis, repetitive movements, trauma or tight muscles around hip and back.

Strains and Sprains

A strain describes a muscle that is overstretched or torn while a sprain is a ligament that is overstretched or torn. The most common causes are awkward twisting, trauma, and heavy lifting or sports injuries.

Tight Back or Hip Muscles

If these muscles are tight, it may cause pain, stiffness and reduced range of motion. Static position for a long time as standing or Sitting for long periods can cause this. Also, sleeping on a bad mattress is a common cause, and we can help you to figure out this problem. Using your body with deviated posture can lead to tightness in some soft tissues and overload others. That’s why it is important to get your posture checked regularly, and this is one of our services at the clinic.

Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction

This joint connects the pelvis and lower spine. If the joint has too little or too much movement, sharp, stabbing pain might be felt in the hips and lower back at random.

Herniated Disc

A herniated disc in the lumbar spine can cause pressure on the nerves in the area, resulting in burning and radiating pain that can go from the back to the foot. A herniated disc will typically also cause the injured person to be bent forward, feeling ‘stuck’, and unable to move. This may occur as a result of improper lifting, repetitive strain, prolonged driving, awkward twisting, trauma or a fall or being overweight.
