How to deal with your lower back pain?

About

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. [1]

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.

Symptoms

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.

Treatment

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.
