Caused by a variety of problems, low back pain is the leading cause of long term sickness in the UK. Low back pain was responsible for more than 15 million lost work days in 2013. Low back pain can be caused when any parts of the complex, interconnected network of spinal muscles, nerves, vertebra, discs, or tendons are irritated and dysfunctional.
Typical conditions that can cause low back pain:
- Lumbar Instability
- Lumbar Radiculopathy (Sciatica)
- Lumbar disc herniation
- Lumbar degeneration (wear and tear)
- Spinal stenosis
Furthermore certain conditions can lead to nerve root irritation in the low back causing symptoms into the legs (sciatica). Many of these lower back probems can also cause muscular spasm in the back that can cause severe disability and pain.
Symptom severity of lower back pain varies greatly. A simple lower back muscle strain might be excruciating enough to necessitate an emergency room visit, while a degenerating disc might cause only mild, intermittent discomfort.
It is important to have a trained professional observe and correctly diagnose your condition so a treatment plan can be formulated aiding recovery and preventing future injury. The Penarth Chiro has undergone extensive chiropractic training to identify specific conditions regarding low back pain and combines his clinical skills with extensive knowledge to determine the best outcome for each patient suffering with low back pain.
