Lower Back Pain

The inter vertebral discs act as shock absorbers between the vertebral bodies in the spine. As people age, the disc lose fluid leading to decrease in their ability to cushion the vertebral body. This can lead to rupture or bulge of the disc when the spine gets strained with any physical activity, possibly leading to pressure on one of the nerve roots. This can lead to low back pain if it occurs in the lumbar spine [lower part of the spine].

How Do I Know if I have Lower Back Pain

Common lower back conditions can present as numbness, tingling, or pain that radiates through either/both legs. Symptoms can vary greatly depending on conditions present and their severity.

Numbness and Tingling usually indicate a more serious condition than pain. If you experience these symptoms, it is important that you seek immediate correction since further damage can result in the need for serious spinal surgery.
