Lumbar radicular pain is a fairly common health problem, yet its risk factors are far from clear. There are no published systematic reviews on associations between cardiovascular or lifestyle risk factors and lumbar radicular pain or sciatica. The aim of this systematic literature review was to assess associations between these risk factors and lumbar radicular pain or sciatica. We conducted a systematic search of the Medline database for all original articles on lumbar radicular pain or… Expand
The Association between the History of Cardiovascular Diseases and Chronic Low Back Pain in South Koreans: A Cross-Sectional Study
TLDR
The prevalence of cLBP is correlated to a history of cardiovascular disease, but not to the major cardiovascular risk factors from the Framingham study. Expand
Risk factors for first time incidence sciatica: a systematic review.
TLDR
A majority of the identified risk factors associated with first time sciatica are modifiable, suggesting the potential benefits of primary prevention, and those risk factors are also associated with unhealthy lifestyles, which may function concomitantly toward the development of Sciatica. Expand
Role of Environmental Factors and History of Low Back Pain in Sciatica Symptoms Among Finnish Adolescents
TLDR
Females reported sciatic pain more often than males and LBP at 16 years predicted sciatica at 18 years, and smoking, obesity, physical workload, and level of physical activity were not associated with Sciatica. Expand
Markers of Cardiovascular Health in Older Adults with and Without Chronic Low Back and Radicular Leg Pain: A Comparative Analysis.
TLDR
Among older adults, CLBPR is linked with worse endothelial function, regardless of educational level and independent of BMI and smoking, and these findings suggest that older adults withCLBPR may be at a higher risk of cardiovascular disease. Expand
The Effect of Smoking on the Risk of Sciatica: A Meta-analysis.
TLDR
Smoking cessation appears to reduce, but not entirely eliminate, the excess risk of lumbar radicular pain and clinically verified sciatica and there was no evidence of publication bias, and the observed associations were not due to selection or detection bias, or confounding factors. Expand
Atherosclerosis and disc degeneration/low-back pain--a systematic review.
  • L. Kauppila
  • Medicine
  • European journal of vascular and endovascular surgery : the official journal of the European Society for Vascular Surgery
  • 2009
TLDR
Aortic atherosclerosis and stenosis of the feeding arteries of the lumbar spine were associated with DD and LBP, and cardiovascular risk factors had weaker associations. Expand
Risk factors of sciatic pain: a prospective study among middle-aged employees.
TLDR
Manual occupational class in both genders and semi-professional occupations in men, unhealthy behaviours and previous pain both in the neck and the lower back predicted sciatica, while physical and psychosocial working conditions had no independent effect. Expand
Obesity as a risk factor for sciatica: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
It is consistently showed that both overweight and obesity are risk factors for lumbar radicular pain and sciatica in men and women, with a dose-response relationship. Expand
Nicotine dependence and the International Association for the Study of Pain neuropathic pain grade in patients with chronic low back pain and radicular pain: is there an association?
TLDR
A current smoking status and higher nicotine dependence increase the odds for chronic LBP, sciatica and radicular neuropathic pain. Expand
A scoping review of biopsychosocial risk factors and co-morbidities for common spinal disorders
TLDR
Many associated factors for common spinal disorders identified in this study are modifiable, and further research into prevention interventions for spinal disorders is needed to address this gap in the literature. Expand

Predictors of sciatic pain among concrete reinforcement workers and house painters--a five-year follow-up.
TLDR
Previous history of back symptoms was the most powerful predictor of sciatic pain prospectively, and concrete reinforcement work was associated with an increase in the risk of Sciatic pain, in both a cross-sectional and a prospective study. Expand
Determinants of sciatica and low-back pain.
TLDR
Smokers had an increased risk of LBP, and body height was related positively to the prevalence of sciatica, but these associations, however, were inconsistent between sex and age subgroups. Expand
Incidence and risk factors of herniated lumbar intervertebral disc or sciatica leading to hospitalization.
TLDR
Low or intermediate social class and blue-collar occupations in services or industry in men and symptoms suggesting psychological distress in women proved significant predictors for hospitalization due to herniated lumbar disc or sciatica. Expand
Pain and high sensitivity C reactive protein in patients with chronic low back pain and acute sciatic pain.
TLDR
Mean intensity of pain during the previous 24 hours as assessed by VAS was independently associated with high levels of hsCRP in patients with acute sciatic pain but not in those with chronic low back pain. Expand
Individual Factors, Occupational Loading, and Physical Exercise as Predictors of Sciatic Pain
TLDR
It is suggested that mental stress and smoking are independent risk factors for incidental sciatic pain and overall physical exercise and most of the sports activities, except jogging and walking, had no effect on Sciatic pain. Expand
Serum Lipids and Low Back Pain: An Association?: A Follow-up Study of a Working Population Sample
TLDR
High serum lipids predicted incident radiating LBP, consistent with the atherosclerosis-LBP hypothesis. Expand
Low Back Pain in the Young A Prospective Three‐Year Follow‐up Study of Subjects With and Without Low Back Pain
TLDR
After the rapid physical growth period, there seemed to be a causal relationship between the early evolution of the degenerative processes of the lower lumbar discs and frequent low back pain in several subjects. Expand
Cardiovascular risk factors and low-back pain in a long-term follow-up of industrial employees.
TLDR
The study adds to the evidence supporting the atherosclerosis-LBP hypothesis particularly for men, with an overall score of CVD risk factors showed a graded association with increased LBP. Expand
Comparison of smoking habits between patients with surgically confirmed herniated lumbar and cervical disc disease and controls.
TLDR
Patients who underwent surgery for cervical or lumbar radiculopathy and to investigate the relationship between cigarette smoking and development of surgical disc disease are reviewed. Expand
Disc Degeneration/Back Pain and Calcification of the Abdominal Aorta: A 25‐Year Follow‐Up Study in Framingham
TLDR
Advanced aortic atherosclerosis, presenting as calcific deposits in the posterior wall of the aorta, increases a person's risk for development of disc degeneration and is associated with the occurrence of back pain. Expand
