How to deal with your lower back pain?
Lower back pain is the condition of mild to severe pain occurring in the lower back. About 80% of adults experience pain in the lower back at some point in their lives.
One of the common causes of lower back pain is muscle strain often related to heavy physical labor, lifting, or exercise. Usually self-treatable, except for chronic or severe cases. Most cases are acute and short-term.
People affected - It often affects people who are 65+ years old, but it is also common in men and women over 20 years.
Those suffering from lower back pain feel a stabbing and throbbing sensation in their lower backs, hips, and buttocks. This can be followed by numbness and weakness.
Most cases of lower back pain are acute and last a few days. These cases can be treated at home and full recovery is usually expected in about a week. If the pain worsens or persists for more than a week, it is recommended to see a doctor or chiropractor.
