Lower Back Pain

Lower Back PainAs an intricate structure of interconnected elements, the lower back is a highly efficient structure. Any problem with any of these structures, including joints, nerves, nerve roots, tendons, soft tissues, muscles and spinal discs, can cause pain in the lower back pain, which radiates to other parts of the body.

Symptoms and Causes

Lower back pain may result from lower back muscle spasms or different syndromes. Identifying the symptoms and underlying cause of lower back pain is essential for proper treatment. A back muscle strain causes pain in the lower back. Twisting, lifting a heavy object, or a sudden movement can also cause muscles to stretch and develop microscopic tears.

Signs of lower back problems include:

  • Muscle spasm
  • Severe movement problems that you can't walk or stand properly
  • Achy and dull pain
  • Local soreness upon touch
  • Pain that moves around to the upper thigh, buttock or groin
  • Pain that does not travel down the legs or knees

Treatment

Yoga, pilates, the Alexander technique, chiropractic can help in alleviating symptoms of pain in the lower back. Certain postural exercises that improve body posture and alignment help you learn how to sit and move in a back-friendly way. People suffering from lower back pain can benefit from Vitamin D supplements, as deficiency of this vitamin may be one of the underlying causes of the problem.
