Back pain is a common struggle, affecting up to 80% of people globally at some point in their lives. However, what causes back pain in females can differ from the factors affecting males. Understanding these causes empowers women to take control of their spinal health and seek effective solutions.

This article delves into the root causes of back pain in women and explores how Elite Spine Centres can be your partner in relief and a better quality of life overall.

What Causes Back Pain in Females?

Understanding what causes back pain in females requires examining various physiological, hormonal and lifestyle factors. Hormonal fluctuations during menstruation, pregnancy and menopause play a significant role in lower back ache causes. For instance, during menstruation, prostaglandins can cause muscle contractions and inflammation, leading to back pain.


Causes of Back Pain in Female

Low-level Laser Therapy

Hormonal Imbalances: Estrogen and progesterone play a significant role in joint health. Fluctuations during menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause can lead to inflammation and pain in the lower back.

Rehabilitation Therapy

Pregnancy: The weight gain and postural changes during pregnancy put immense stress on the lower back muscles and ligaments. This can lead to pain and discomfort, especially in the third trimester.

Advanced Radial Shockwave Therapy

Endometriosis: This condition causes tissue similar to the uterine lining to grow outside the uterus. It can cause severe back pain, especially during menstruation.

Advanced Radial Shockwave Therapy

Osteoporosis: Women are more likely to develop osteoporosis, which weakens bones and increases the risk of spine fractures.
