Are you a backpain sufferer in Clifton Hill? Is so this information can start you on the path of recovery. Just what are the causes of lower back pain?

1. Muscular strain Common symptoms include shooting pain worsened by movement, difficulty in performing normal daily tasks and a sharp increase in pain on changing from standing to sitting or from sitting to standing. Pain is commonly reduced by resting on your back with your knees bent.

2. Disc prolapse Common symptoms include severe lower back and/or leg pain. Pains are usually sharp and burning with “electric” like sensations. Pain can extend to the lower leg and foot and can occur with minimal associated back pain. Temporary and mild relief with rest, anti-inflammatories and pain-killers.

3. Joint problems Compression or poor movement patterns in the lumbar joints. Pain can be variable from mild to severe. Certain back movements can irritate the joint depending on the type of injury. Respond well to correct movement and general spinal conditioning exercises.

4. Back pain referred from internal organs. It is important to recognize the possibility that your back pain can originate from infection, inflammation or even tumours within the abdominal or pelvic regions. Conditions such as kidney stones, gall stones, appendicitis, endometriosis, uterine conditions, gut conditions and pancreatitis are just a few of the internal conditions that can present with back pain.
