LOW BACK PAIN TREATMENTSuffering from low back pain is very common. Find the right treatment for you at Spring Creek Medical
Statistics show that nearly everyone experiences low back pain at some point in their lives. This pain can vary from being mild to severe. It can be short-lived or long-lasting. Whatever the cause, low back pain can make life’s everyday tasks difficult to accomplish.
Back pain is different from one person to the next. The pain can have a slow onset or come on suddenly. The pain may be intermittent or constant. In most cases, back pain resolves on its own within a few weeks.
There are many causes of low back pain. It sometimes occurs after a specific movement such as lifting or bending. In many cases, getting to an older age will play into the condition. It’s a fact that aging causes degenerative changes in the spine. These changes can start in our 30’s — or even younger — and can make us prone to back pain, especially if we overdo our activities.
Unfortunately, these changes that come from age or accident will keep millions of people from being able to lead their normal, pain-free and productive lives.
As mentioned above, back pain varies greatly. It may be sharp or stabbing. It can be dull, achy, or feel like a “charley horse” type cramp. The type of pain you have will depend on the underlying cause of your back pain.
Most people find that reclining or lying down on a semi-hard surface will improve low back pain, no matter the underlying cause.
People with low back pain may experience some of the following:
- Back pain may be worse with bending and lifting, sitting may worsen pain, standing and walking may worsen pain.
- Back pain comes and goes, and often follows an up and down course with good days and bad days.
- Pain may extend from the back into the buttock or outer hip area, but not down the leg.
- Sciatica is common with a herniated disk. This includes buttock and leg pain, and even numbness, tingling or weakness that goes down to the foot. It is possible to have sciatica without back pain.
