What causes lower back pain?
Lower back pain can occur for many reasons. Some of the most common causes of lower back pain include:
Muscular and Ligamentous injury
Sciatic nerve compression
Degenerative disc disease
Postural imbalances, such as lordosis, kyphosis, or a forward head posture can also contribute to lower back pain. As well as short leg.
Can I treat lower back pain at home?
If you have mild pain that doesn’t prevent you from moving or performing daily activities, applying heat or ice, performing exercises that strengthen your core abdominal muscles, and stretching, might help. Sleeping on a firmer mattress may also alleviate mild back pain.
If you suffer an injury that causes back pain, you should see a qualified medical provider for an assessment right away, even if the injury seems mild. Lower back injuries can worsen over time and may involve your vertebrae or spinal discs, which can cause long-term complications.
If you have chronic lower back pain that is mild to severe, or pain that can’t be relieved at home, you should get a medical evaluation. The providers at Beeson Wellness Center have the skills and knowledge to evaluate your lower back pain. An evaluation may include diagnostic imaging, such as digital X-rays, surface electromyography, or an ultrasound.
