About


Pain and aching sensation in the lower back.


Worldwide, back pain is the single leading cause of disability. [1]



- Most adults experience low back aches at some point in the lives
- Most cases are acute and are caused by an injury to the muscles, ligaments, joints, or discs
- Acute cases are self-diagnosable and treatable and usually go away within a week


For chronic lower back aches, a thorough diagnosis is important to lay the foundation for appropriate treatment and rehabilitation.

Ages affected - All ages are susceptible, but most often- 40 +


Symptoms

People may experience:
- Mechanical Pain- throbbing or stabbing sensation localized to the lower back, buttocks, and sometimes the top of the legs
- Radicular Pain- sensation down the butt and legs is sharp, electric, burning-type pain that can be associated with weakness and numbness


Treatment


If the pain persists longer than a week or becomes debilitating, especially if it affects walking, please see a medical professional.


Self Care: Rest your body and give it time to recover. Ice or apply heat to the lower back.

Medications: For mild aching pains, taking over-the-counter pain relievers will help you manage the pain.

Specialists: If diagnosed with a condition or injury, seeing a chiropractor or physical therapist will help recover the nerves and muscles.
