Low back pain

2 min read
Lower backs are prone to feeling pain at sometime in our life. Why?
Because the lower back supports the majority of our bodyweight. It’s also one of the most common reasons why people go to the doctor. 
It can be very painful and may be caused by muscle spasms, muscle strains, or even a tear in the muscle or ligament. 
Low back pain can come from compression factors for people who have osteoporosis.

It can also occur from a ruptured or herniated desk, narrowing of the spinal canal, or abnormal curvature of the spine. 
Symptoms can include tingling or burning sensations and sharp pains. The pain can be mild or so severe that it’s debilitating. You may also get pain in your leg, hip, or the bottom of your foot. 
Sufferers may also experience weakness in the legs and feet. For most people, back pain improves in 4 to 6 weeks. 
Rest is best… For the first days after experiencing back pain. Using ice for the first 2 to 3 days followed by heat on the following days may be helpful. 
Sleeping in a fetal position with a pillow between your legs or on your back with a pillow under your knees may help relieve the pressure.

Get back to being active after the first few days of rest, unless there is a serious injury.
Avoid heavy lifting and twisting movements and do light aerobic activity such as walking, stationary cycling, or swimming. 
Getting blood flow into injured areas promotes healing.  Physical therapy can help to reduce pain, and safely stretch and strengthen through specific exercises. Starting exercises too soon can worsen the pain.
Aggravators of lower back pain are: standing for long periods, wearing high heels, poor posture while sitting, smoking, being overweight, and weak abdominal/core muscles.
