Lower Back Pain: FAQ 

Here Are Some Commonly Asked Questions about Low Back Pain
What Causes Muscle Spasms in the Lower back?

Muscle spasm in your lower back is one way that your body naturally defends itself for protection against any further damage to the injured or weakened area of your spine. They are commonly caused by subluxations (misalignment) of the vertebrae due to acute, traumatic injuries or repetitive motion injuries that cause sprain, strain or overuse injuries.

What are the symptoms of chronic back Pain?

Chronic back pain symptoms may vary. The symptoms experienced can be dull, achy, sharp, throbbing, diffuse, pinpoint or stabbing pain. Pain intensity can also vary from mild to severe depending on the injury. Someone with chronic lower back pain typically has experienced recurrent episodes of pain.

What Does it mean if you have severe lower back pain?

The severity of lower back pain may indicate the degree of subluxation (misalignment) that someone has experienced. When lower back pain is severe, it usually indicates the subluxation is severe and therefore pinching the nerve(s) significantly. Severe lower back pain can also mean the disc has been injured. A severe disc bulge, herniation or protrusion can cause severe pain.

What are some causes of low back pain?
Lower back pain is commonly caused by a mechanical issue or injury to the spine causing a subluxation (misalignment). Muscle spasm around the injury act as a protective mechanism to prevent additional injury, but the spasm themselves can also cause pain.
Does having a strong core help prevent low back pain?
Having a strong core can help stabilize the spine and allow it to adapt to various stresses. Lowering the amount of stress that is placed on the spine can also help prevent injuries. Therapeutic exercises, proper ergonomics while working and proper lifting technique while exercising can help prevent lower back injuries.
Does back pain run in families?
Most of the time lower back pain is a mechanical issue so there is no hereditary component to lower back pain. However family members may experience lower back pain due to the types of physical activities they participate in.
Will bed rest make my low back pain better?
Bed rest is not recommended for lower back pain because there is evidence that bed rest can make the problem worse, causing it to take longer to heal. It is recommended to get an examination on the cause of your lower back pain to identify the cause of the problem and a course of treatment to relieve the lower back pain.
I have osteoarthritis. Is lumbar back surgery an option for me?
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. It occurs when the intervertebral discs (ligaments between vertebrae) break down due to abnormal wear and tear. Surgery is not typically recommended to treat osteoarthritis as it does not respond well to surgery.
