LOW BACK PAIN
After the common cold, lumbar or low back pain is the most common reason why people visit the doctor..
Many factors can cause back pain, though most times back pain resolves itself in about two to four weeks by using heat, ice, and having enough rest. About 80 percent of American citizens experience low back pain at some point in their lives. This makes back pain the second top reason why people miss work or visit doctors.
How Common is Low Back Pain?
Even though it has been estimated that five out of six individuals will experience low back or back pain at some point in their lives, a low back pain that persists longer than just a few weeks isn’t normal, and it is necessary to visit a lower back pain management doctor.
Symptoms of Low Back Pain
Symptoms of low back pain might include experiencing a shooting or stabbing pain, muscle ache, limited flexibility in the lower back or back, being unable to stand with appropriate posture and experiencing radiating pain down both legs or sometimes one leg.
What is the Source of My Low back Pain?
Herniated or Bulging Discs
The soft cushions found between the vertebra is called spinal discs. The soft jellylike material inside the disc can sometimes rupture or bulge out of place, thereby applying pressure on its surrounding nerves, and that causes back pain. Disc linked pains are most times caused by an injury. Also noteworthy is that some individuals have herniated or bulging discs will never feel any back pain.
Muscle related pain is the most common reason for general back pain. This form of back pain is typically caused by overuse, improper lifting methods, fall, poor posture or a sudden awkward movement.
Back pains that come from the sciatic nerve are referred to as sciatica. The sciatic nerve is a large nerve that extends from the lower back down towards the back of each leg. Sciatica isn’t considered as a disorder, but rather it is a symptom of another underlying condition like an irritated/pinched nerve in the lower back, spinal stenosis, or a herniated disc.
If you have scoliosis, degenerative disc disease, stenosis, arthritis, compression fractures or osteoporosis, you might also experience joint and bone pain in the back.
