Low or Lower Back Pain

What is lower back Pain?

If you have low or lower back pain (also known as Lumbago), you are not alone – more than 80% of adults suffer from lower back pain at some point in their lives and often before the age of 45.

The lower back, which starts below the rib cage and is also called the lumbar region, supports the weight of the upper body, providing support, strength and flexibility to the spine. But it is also susceptible to injury and pain.

Maintaining good posture is therefore vital when it comes to avoiding injury to this sensitive region of the body.

When it occurs, pain can range from a dull ache to sharp stabbing sensations and can last from just a few days to even years.

WHAT CAUSES LOWER BACK PAIN?

There are main different causes of lower back pain, ranging from strains to degenerative conditions, but the most common cause is a strain related to heavy physical labor, lifting or forceful movement, bending or twisting into awkward positions, or standing in one position too long.

A strain to the lower back occurs when ligaments and tendons or muscles of the lower back are stretched resulting in a tear in these tissues. Typically this pain is localized to a specific area but can be very painful and spread over the entire area.

There are many different conditions that cause or contribute to low and lower back pain. Many involve nerve compression (e.g a pinched nerve) that may generate pain and other symptoms.

WHAT TREATMENTS ARE AVAILABLE?

  • Over-the-counter medication: this can help to reduce inflammation and pain but this may not be a long-term solution to the problem.
  • Physiotherapy and Osteopathy: this is the only treatment that will provide long-term relief to the problem. But it requires a long-term commitment.
  • Surgery: this is an invasive procedure and the risk of a repeat injury is high

WHAT ABOUT MORE NATURAL SOLUTIONS?

Low and lower back pain is often caused by bad posture during physical activity.
If the back is not properly aligned any extra effort can cause considerable stress on the intervertebral disc.
To avoid these injuries it’s important to maintain good posture and strengthen the muscles in your back.
