Lower Back Pain

Are You Suffering from Lower Back Pain?

Lower back pain is one of the most common ailments among adults in America. It affects nearly 80 percent of people during their lifetime and occurs in both men and women. Lower back pain is also the most common cause of job-related disability and a major reason for missed work. While most back pain goes away on its own, many people suffer from chronic back pain, particularly the lower back.

Treatment for this type of back pain ranges from simple rest and icing to surgical procedures. Treatment can also include many other options in between. Your best back pain treatment solution depends on the severity of your case and the way it was caused. Only your doctor will be able to accurately set a plan in place for your recovery based on your situation.

Living with Lower Back Pain

Symptoms of lower back pain conditions are comparable to those of a painfully pinched nerve, which include tingling, numbness, pain that radiates along the nerve path, and sensations of acute pins and needles. As the condition worsens, reflexes and muscular weakness will start to set in. Symptoms will inevitably be felt in the legs or arms, depending on where the condition originates. The condition in your lower back will impact you starting from the buttocks on down, while pain originating in the neck area will generally affect the upper extremities.
