Lower Back Pain Physiotherapy
Lower back pain can be caused and aggravated by a myriad of problems at the discs, joints, muscles and ligaments or even a combination of 2 or more injuries. However, lower back pain often occurs mainly due to
- acute or direct injuries (trauma) and/or
- poor postural habits that leads to long-term accumulation of micro-trauma to the spine
Lower Back Pain Symptoms
Most of our lower back pain patients report experiencing:
- pain and/or discomfort between their ribs and buttocks
- with or without leg pain
Symptoms can vary, ranging from
- shooting pain
- sharp pain
- stabbing pain
- decreased movements
- joint stiffness
- difficulty getting up
- difficulty standing straight/upright
- difficulty walking
If the patient also has symptoms of sciatica, the compressed sciatic nerve causes pain that radiates (travels) down the leg and maybe experience pain in their foot and ankle. Sometimes patientsalso report experiencing pins and needles or numbness too.
Patients who experience new (termed as "acute") episode of lower back pain may experience symptoms that last anything from a few days to a couple of weeks due to trauma. If the patient's lower back pain has been present for more than 3 months, it is what we call as long-term back pain (chronic back pain).
