Lower lumbar pain is a very common condition that most people will suffer from at some point during their lifetime.
In many cases, the pain is the result of damage or injury to the muscles and ligaments in the back.
Fortunately, there are minimally invasive treatments available to help with your pain.
Lower lumbar pain is a general symptom that could mean different things to different patients, based on their unique history and diagnosis. Generally, back pain symptoms may include any of the following:
- Dull aches and pains
- Reduced flexibility
- Muscle spasms, which can be severe
- Sore to the touch
- Trouble moving
In some cases, low lumbar pain may refer to other parts of the body. When pain travels to the groin, buttocks or legs, for example, there is a strong possibility that you have developed sciatica. In these cases, it’s important to speak with a knowledgeable physician to get an accurate diagnosis and relevant treatment plan.
There are many structures in your spine that can cause pain, so the exact causes of lower back pain can be complicated and varied. That’s why it’s essential to communicate thoroughly with your doctor about the severity of your pain, when it comes on, and as much other detail as you can provide. Your treatment will depend on the history of the pain and any activities that might have made the pain better or worse. Call Lower Lumbar Pain Relief today: (732) 737-9231.
