Lower Back

Will your back pain become chronic?

Low back pain (LBP) can often be dismissed as something trivial, by both sufferers and doctors. However, if you have pain in your lower back, leaving it untreated can have a serious effect on your quality of life.

LPB manifests itself towards the base of the spine yet it can come from different anatomical sources, including the hip and pelvis. Pain from the thoracic spine can also result in pain in the lumbar vertebrae - i.e. the lower back.

Symptoms

Symptoms should not be ignored, and can include:

  • Pain in the groin, buttock or upper thigh
  • Difficulty moving, walking or standing
  • Localized soreness when touched
  • A burning sensation
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Dull ache
  • Muscle spasms

Causes

Straining your back muscle or a ligament is the most common contributing factor to lower back pain. Strains or tears can be caused by lifting a heavy object, turning around quickly or making a sudden movement.

Diagnosis

Cases of lower back pain almost always require clinical diagnosis by a trained specialist. Talk to the team at JC Rejuvenation and Wellness today if you are suffering from any of the above symptoms and suspect they are caused by LBP.

Treatment

At JC Rejuvenation and Wellness we believe in addressing the root cause of the problem rather than the symptoms. To do this we need to identify your movement dysfunction, the pain generator - i.e. the muscle, joint, nerve, or disc that becomes irritated when you make a specific movement, and the primary load transfer failure. We can then begin to address the spinal stability system from a dynamic stability perspective.
