Low Back Pain Q & A
How common is low back pain?
As many as 80% of Americans experience back pain at some point in their life. If left untreated, low back pain can become chronic and debilitating. The pain specialists at Lifestyle Medical Center find the cause of your low back pain and provide customized treatments to prevent your discomfort from worsening over time.
What causes low back pain?
Sometimes, a simple activity or movement, like bending over to pick up a dropped pen, can cause sudden lower back pain. You can experience low back pain following an injury or by lifting while twisting or moving a heavy object incorrectly. Low back pain can also develop gradually or be related to a degenerative condition. A lifetime of poor posture or obesity can cause back pain, too.
Persistent lower back pain may be a sign of a more serious underlying health condition. Common back pain symptoms you shouldn’t ignore include:
- A persistent dull ache in your lower back that doesn’t respond to pain relievers
- Ongoing muscle spasms in the pelvis, hips, or lower back
- Tight or stiff back muscles that don’t get better with stretching or resting
- Difficulty standing up straight for prolonged periods
- Difficulty walking even short distances
- Pain that worsens after sitting
- Pain that travels to the buttocks, legs, and feet
- Difficulty getting comfortable while lying down
If you have chronic low back pain or any of these symptoms, make an appointment today.
