Back pain is one of the most commonly experienced symptoms among adults. Although men are less likely to seek medical attention for back pain than women, they’re more prone to developing back problems especially if their line of work requires manual labor. Back pain is usually caused by incorrect lifting or degenerative changes in the spine which can be controlled with back strengthening exercises and anti-inflammatory medications; but in some cases, physical therapy or even surgery may be needed. Although most causes of back pain in men are due to aging and overuse, there are other conditions that need to be ruled out when back pain is persistent. Here are some other, sometimes overlooked, disorders that can cause back pain in men.
