Lower back pain doesn't have to be the worst thing in the world, but it can feel that way with all of the complications, time spent on treatment, and lack of positive results. To add insult to injury, those temporary relief products, such as pain-relief gels could aggravate the issue. This can leave you confused and frustrated if you don't know how to cure lower back pain. Instead of taking a pill or applying lotion that may or may not relieve pain, there are other effective methods for back pain treatment in Albuquerque

Back pain is any pain felt in the back, such as a ‘stiff upper back’ or a ‘sharp pain in the lower back. It can be experienced anywhere between the shoulder blades, around the waist, down as far as the buttocks, and into the legs. Back pain is often described as a dull aching or burning pain in the lower back and buttocks that gets worse when you move. It may also cause numbness, tingling, weakness, or tightness in the legs.

Causes of back pain

Here are some of the more common causes of back pain:

  • Injuries

Falls, sports injuries, car accidents, and other trauma can injure your spine. This can lead to muscle spasms, inflammation, or nerve damage.

  • Poor posture

Slouching in your chair all day at work or slumping over the steering wheel when you drive can cause tension in your upper back and shoulders. This stress on the muscles can lead to painful spasms or weakness.

  • Bad sleeping habits

Not getting enough sleep or sleeping on an uncomfortable mattress can cause strain on your spine as well as poor circulation in the lower back area that leading to fatigue and fatigue-related injuries such as low back pain.

  • Being overweight

It increases the risk of low back pain because of the extra weight strains in joints and muscles, especially in the lower back region where there isn't much fat padding between bones and joints.

  • Medical conditions 

Medical conditions like arthritis pain, osteoporosis (thinning of bone tissue), kidney disease, or poor blood circulation may cause back pain that gets worse when lying down.

  1. Back pain may be characterized by a stiff feeling in the back
  2. Limited range of motion.
  3. Pain that travels down your leg.
  4. Difficulty standing or walking, especially if it is accompanied by numbness or weakness in the legs or feet.
  5. Weight loss and fever along with back pain.
  6. Pain that worsens with coughing or sneezing, bending, lifting, standing, or walking.
  7. Severe back pain including shooting pain, constant pain, and also that is always there, like a case of being broken.

Treatment of back pain

Back pain is a common complaint. The good news is that most back pain is not serious and can be relieved with self-care and/or treatment from your doctor. Treatment for back pain depends on the source of your symptoms, how severe they are, and whether they have lasted more than 4 to 6 weeks.

The following treatments may help relieve your pain:

  • Anti-inflammatory medications (such as ibuprofen) or over-the-counter cold remedies
  • Heat therapy
  • Exercise to strengthen core muscles and improve flexibility in the back and legs (if needed)
  • Maintain good posture 
  • Have a balanced diet and sleep. 

Back pain and occupational discomfort are both becoming more common. People are unfortunately idle for extended periods due to modern lifestyles and sedentary occupations. The muscles go numb as a result. Back discomfort results from overusing your joints and applying excessive pressure to them. Chronic back discomfort is brought on by poor behaviors like slouching on the couch. Understanding your body and how it responds to various circumstances and routine activities will help you prevent and treat back pain in the majority of cases.
