From the Desk of: Robin Wakeham, Physical Therapist
There are many different possible causes of lower back pain, but here are three common ones:
1.Strains and sprains: These are often the result of sudden movements, heavy lifting, or repetitive motions that put undue stress on the muscles and ligaments in the lower back. Strains and sprains can cause muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain that can range from mild to severe.
2.Herniated or bulging discs: The vertebrae in the spine are separated by soft, cushion-like discs that absorb shock and provide flexibility. Over time, these discs can degenerate or become damaged, causing them to bulge or even rupture. When this happens, the soft material inside the disc can press on nearby nerves, causing pain, numbness, or weakness in the lower back and legs.
3.Osteoarthritis: This is a degenerative joint disease that can affect the joints in the spine, causing inflammation, pain, and stiffness. Osteoarthritis can cause the cartilage in the joints to wear away, leading to bone-on-bone contact and the formation of bone spurs. These changes can lead to a narrowing of the spinal canal, which can put pressure on the nerves in the lower back and cause pain and other symptoms.
P.S.- Don't forget you're just one step away from relieving your back pain...
