Why Back Pain is Common in Females and its Treatment

We often listen to “Behind every successful man, there is a woman”. This statement is based upon the uncountable efforts of the females in the expected functioning of not only her family but also the functioning of the whole world. 

Females support each individual in achieving life goals, and success. Females are known for their unbound strength and determination in making others’ lives happy. A female draws out various characteristics which are different from that of a male, varying from factors such as physical, mental, biological and reproductive. 

Amid playing numerous life roles such as mother, sister, daughter, wife, and many others, females neglect their own body care which further results in the development of various health-related issues from which back pain is the most common. 

In this article, we will throw light on the concept of why back pain is more common in females than males and how females can treat this annoying health issue.

What is back pain?

Back pain is the condition when an individual feels severe pain or ache anywhere in the back and sometimes all the way down to the buttocks and legs. Back pain is a common reason for absence from work and booking doctor’s appointments. It is really an uncomfortable and debilitating condition. 

Symptoms of back pain

The symptom of back pain can range from muscle aches to shooting, stabbing, or burning sensations. The pain may radiate down to the legs or become worse when lifting, twisting, bending, walking, or standing. 

The pain may be less at the initial stage but can increase over time if preventive measures or proper treatment methods are not taken.

Why is back pain more common in females?

We observed that females suffer more from back pain as compared with males. Doctors found that the causes of back pain are more in females. Males get pain due to an injury, muscle damage, or pulled ligament. 

But in females, there are various other causes also which can develop back pain. These causes may include:

  • Endometriosis

It is a condition in which the tissue that lines the uterus, known as endometrial tissue, starts to grow outside the uterus. 

With endometriosis, this tissue often grows on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and other tissues lining the pelvis. It may even grow around the urinary tract and bowel. 

Overall body pain especially in the back is one of the major symptoms of endometriosis.

  • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)

PMS is a condition many women get before their periods. It has many potential symptoms, and you likely won’t have all of them. Broadly, symptoms include severe back pain, fatigue, headache, and bloating. 

PMS starts a few days before the periods and it ends within a day after periods start.

  • Premenstrual dysmorphic disorder (PMDD)

It is a more severe form of PMS, where symptoms significantly interfere with daily life. Some people with PMDD may even have trouble functioning when they have symptoms. Fewer women have PMDD than PMS. 

PMDD may also result in severe back pain and body weakness.

  • Dysmenorrhea

The condition of having very painful menstruation is termed dysmenorrhea. The pain in this condition is mainly observed in the lower back, lower abdomen, legs, and hips. This pain usually lasts for 1 to 3 days. The pain may be mild to severe and it may feel like shooting pains. 

  • Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a mixed situation of happiness and body complications. Back pain is a common issue while suffering from pregnancy. This may be due to the weight gain, shifting of the body’s center of gravity, and relaxation of ligaments for preparation for birth.
