Introduction: Low back pain is the most common reason for all physician visits and many people experience it during their life. The reason for this study was to show the frequency analysis of the causes of back pain and  analyzing their association with some clinical and demographic findings.
Methods: This analytic cross sectional study was performed on the patients visited in the Clinics of Yazd Shahid Sadoughi Hospital in 2013. Patients with low back pain due to paraclinical findings were included in the study.
Results: 200 patients were studied. The frequency of the causes of the pain were discopathy (54%), spondylolisthesis (13%), osteoarthritis (11%), canal stenosis (10%), fracture (7%) and tumor (1%), respectively. There was statistically significant between the causes of back pain and age (p=0.005) as well as the pain duration (p=0.000), but there was not found any significant association among back pain and sex, body mass index (BMI) and job activities.
Conclusion: The most common cause of specific back pain is discopathy and spondylolisthesis.  This has to be considered in health care plans to control backache as a common health problem
