Back Pain Facts The back is a complex structure of joints, ligaments, bones, and muscles. Unfortunately, it is all to common to sprain ligaments, irritate joints, strain muscles, and rupture discs, all of which will lead to back pain. While accidents, work injuries, or sports injuries can cause back pain, sometimes simple movements like picking up a light object off the ground, can have very painful results. Back pain can also be the result of a disease such as kidney infections, blood clots, or bone loss.
