What Is Causing Your Lower Back Pain?
Lower back pain, like most forms of pain, tends to have mechanical rather than organic causes. This means that the pain is a result of sudden or repetitive injury.
Some of the most common causes of lower back pain include:
- Overuse Injuries
- Strains caused by poor body mechanics
- Fractures of the Vertebrae
- Herniated Discs
Treating Lower Back Pain
Lower back pain can develop suddenly or over time. If you have been dealing with your condition for a while, it may take a little time to strengthen your muscles and restore your lower back. If your back pain came on suddenly as the result of an injury, initial rest along with heat and ice therapy can be very effective in reducing swelling and easing discomfort. An estimated 31 million Americans will deal with lower back pain in their life. Performance Health Lower Back Pain treatment plans normally include: Biopuncture, which has an acupuncture/trigger point effect that will help release the bound up, tight spasmed muscle. Physical Therapy will help strengthen both your back and core muscles to help your lower back recover. Massage Therapy and Chiropractic treatments might also be prescribed by one of our Physicians.
