What is Low Back Pain?

Low back pain is one of the most common types of pain experienced by patients. Nonspecific lower back pain can be accompanied by severe discomfort, loss of mobility, and even some level of disability when left untreated. Pain can be related to issues with the lower back musculature or the spine, and the underlying problems often do not show up on x-rays.

Fortunately, osteopathic care can provide the non-invasive treatment patients need to resolve acute and chronic lower back pain.

What Causes this Condition?

Pain in the lower back can be caused by a variety of factors. Non-disc related back pain in this region is often caused by injuries, the normal wear and tear of the aging process, history of falls, or the physical stress that can accompany many pregnancies.

History of Falls

The impact of any fall can result in a misalignment of the pelvic and spine and could develop “short leg syndrome” prompting patients to complain about not being able to wear high heel shoes, limping, and pain while walking.

Pregnancy
  • Forward tilting of the pelvic increase lumbar lordosis as a counterbalance and could lead to chronic back pain
  • After delivery, women’s legs have to be removed properly from the stirrups to prevent pelvic misalignment

In addition, muscle strains, poor work posture, period pain, and overstretching during physical activities can all cause pain and discomfort in the lower back.

What Are the Symptoms of Low Back Pain?

The symptoms of lower back pain can be remarkably similar to other types of back pain. In some instances, that can make diagnosis difficult, which may lead physicians to rely on pain medication instead of recommended treatments to address the underlying issues. For most typical cases of lower back discomfort, symptoms can include:

  • Dull, aching pain that is confined to the area of the lower back
  • More severe pain that may burn or sting and can migrate to the lower extremities.
  • Tightness in the lower back
  • Muscle spasms in the lower region of the back, as well as the hips and pelvis
  • Disabling pain that may inhibit mobility
