Lower Back Pain

What causes lower back pain?

Sometimes, a simple activity or movement, like bending over to pick up a dropped pen, can cause sudden lower back pain. A torn or pulled muscle causes back stiffness, or perhaps your back pain is the result of a sports injury, minor car accident, or fall.

Lifting heavy objects and moving furniture are common causes of general muscular pain that results in low back pain. Twisting your body while lifting an object may also result in an initial sharp pain that becomes more persistent if left untreated. A lifetime of poor posture, obesity, or a herniated disc can cause back pain, too.

Experts believe that as many as 80% of Americans experience some type of back pain at some point in their life. If left untreated, the pain may become chronic and debilitating. The pain specialists at Revive Medical search for the cause of your low back pain so they can treat it before it worsens over time.

When should I seek treatment for lower back pain?

Persistent lower back pain may be a sign of a more serious underlying health condition. If your pain doesn’t decrease after a day or two of applying ice, heat, or over-the-counter pain relievers, seek treatment from a specialist before the condition worsens.

Common back pain symptoms you shouldn’t ignore include:

  • Persistent dull, ache in your lower back that doesn’t respond to pain relievers
  • Ongoing muscle spasms in the pelvis, hips, or lower back
  • Tight or stiff back muscles that don’t get better with stretching or resting
  • Difficulty standing up straight for prolonged periods
  • Difficulty walking, even short distances
  • Pain that worsens after sitting
  • Pain that travels to the buttocks, legs, and feet
  • Difficulty getting comfortable while lying down

Is it possible to treat low back pain without medication?

A variety of lower back pain treatment options don’t require you to take medication. In fact, natural methods can help alleviate most pain. The experts at Revive Medical use an integrative approach to treating lower back conditions without prescription medication.

The doctors want to find the cause of your back pain so they can recommend effective treatment options. Whether it is skeletal, general muscular pain, or the result of an injury, they offer noninvasive therapeutic options. One of the treatments that may provide effective relief for you is low level light therapy (LLLT). This noninvasive procedure uses laser light to promote your body’s natural ability to heal.
