Lower Back Pain Symptoms

  • Sudden or severe pain and aching in the lower back – particularly after moving suddenly, lifting something heavy or physical activity. This can include:
  • Muscle Spasms or Physical soreness to the touch
  • Difficulty moving, standing or walking
  • Pain that aches and is dull or constant rather than acute

The severity of lower back pain can range from extreme to mild. While some may heal on their own over time, it is best to seek out a trained back or spine professional to get treatment. This will not only speed up the recovery, but also help to identify the cause of the problem. Knowing the main cause of the problem can help to prevent future injuries as well.

Muscle strain, over use or injury is one of the common causes of lower back pain. Athletes and those with more physical jobs are likely candidates. Seeing your local doctor or a trained chiropractor should be the first step in treating this problem, as it could be a variety of issues including but not limited to:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Herniated Disc
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Pregnancy
