Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain can make even the most basic tasks difficult, such as sleeping.

People in their 30s to 50s are more prone than others to suffer from low back discomfort. In part, this can be attributed to the physiological changes that come with growing older. The fluid content between the vertebrae in your spine decreases as you become older.

Those in the area who can access our clinic who have shoulder pain or other long-term problems can get help from our clinic, which has natural ways to relieve pain. With us, you don’t have to have surgery or take painkillers to get your arm moving again.

What causes lower back pain?

Lower back pain has been a problem for a long time now. As a matter of fact, lower back pain is the single most common cause of disability in the world. Lower back pain can be caused by a wide range of things, including muscle imbalances, posture, and bad biomechanics. It can be hard to treat and manage.

Some of the most common lower back pain injuries, diagnoses, and conditions include:

  • Strains – The muscles and ligaments in the back can stretch or tear if you do too much.
  • Disc injury – The discs in the back are prone to injury.
  • Sciatica can occur with a herniated disc if the disc presses on the sciatic nerve.
  • Spinal stenosis – A narrowing of the spinal column puts pressure on the spinal cord and its nerves.
  • Scoliosis, kyphosis, and lordosis are all conditions that cause abnormal curvatures in the spine.
  • Arthritis is an inflammation of the joints.
  • Fibromyalgia is long-term pain and tenderness in the joints, muscles, and tendons.
  • Spondylitis is inflammation of the joints between the spinal bones.
  • Spondylosis is a degenerative disorder that may cause loss of normal spinal structure and function.

Additional health conditions that can cause lower back pain include:

  • Kidney and bladder problems
  • pregnancy
