What Causes Lower Back Pain?
Lower back pain can come from many different issues. Some common causes include the following:
- Muscle sprains and strains that occur when the muscle is overstretched
- Herniated discs can sit on a nerve root and cause inflammation, burning, numbness, weakness, and tingling
- Ongoing conditions, such as degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, and spondylolisthesis
- Spinal misalignment can cause problems with the nerves and create undue tension in the muscles
- Breaks, fractures, and other injuries
- Osteoarthritis and arthritis
Infections can also cause back pain, though this is much less likely. Most lower back pain stems from an issue in the musculoskeletal system.
When To See a Chiropractor for Lower Back Pain Relief
In some cases, lower back pain will go away with rest after a few days if it comes from overuse of the muscle. However, if the pain lasts more than a few days, you will need to see a chiropractor. Additionally, you will need to see a chiropractor as soon as possible if you experience other symptoms in conjunction with your lower back pain. These include symptoms such as numbness, tingling, muscle or weakness in the leg or foot, and headaches.
