What Causes Lower Back Pain?

Lower back pain is not a rare condition. Many people have experienced it in their lives, making it one of the main reasons why employees miss their work. In some cases, some individuals don’t even know why they have lower back pain. 

In this section, we will investigate the common culprits of your lower back pain, so you will know how to avoid them. 

Allows You to Try the Machine before You Buy

An electromagnetic pulse therapy machine comes with numerous benefits not just for humans but also for animals. It helps lessen the pain the user is feeling. Moreover, the resonating pulses of low-intensity machines stimulate the cells, which assists the body in its natural recovery process. 

You may also read what other people have to say about the benefits a PEMF therapy machine has brought to their life. In addition to that, there are various documents and research highlighting the positive effects of the said device. 

But if you’re still not convinced of the advantages it brings to your body, and you’re thinking twice if it’s worth buying a PEMF therapy machine, you can just rent it first before you purchase. It allows you to personally experience the advantages of using this device without being tied to a long-term financial commitment. 

Maybe It’s Because of Your Job

Whether you work in an air-conditioned office or under the scorching heat of the sun, you can still be susceptible to back pain. However, that will depend on what your job is. If you carry, lift, or pull heavy stuff, that may contribute to your back pain.  

Not just that. You can also get lower back pain if you just sit at a desk all day, especially when you are always slouching, or your chair doesn’t support your back properly. That is why you have to move, stand up, stretch, and walk every now and then. 

Have You Been Working Out?

Exercising or working out is beneficial for your body. However, you have to make sure that your workout routine is something your body can take. You may have back pain when you overdo it at the gym, or you have been exercising intensely after being inactive for several days or weeks. This pain is mainly because of overextended muscles. 

Remember, Good Posture is Important

Suppose you’re doing light exercise, and you’re not lifting or pushing heavy objects, yet you still have back pain. Why could that be? Posture. 

Aside from improving your overall appearance, good posture also helps improve your blood flow and keeps your nerves and blood vessels healthy, which will eventually enhance your spine’s health. If you sit or stand up straight, your back supports your weight best. 

Is Your Bag Too Heavy?

It is one of the most common causes of back pain, especially for students who carry a lot of books as they walk to and from school.  

Remember, the lower portion of your back supports the weight of the upper body. So, you may still have back pain whether you are using a purse, a briefcase, or a backpack, especially when you have an overstuffed bag and its contents are too heavy. Carrying heavy baggage for an extended period or on a daily basis can strain your lower back. 

Chronic Conditions Can Cause Back Pain, Too

Chronic conditions like scoliosis, ankylosing spondylitis, and fibromyalgia can result in back pain as these conditions mainly affect the spine. Take for example spinal stenosis, a condition wherein there is a narrowing of the space that surrounds the spinal cord. With the pressure placed on the spinal nerves, the patient will then feel pain in their lower back.  

What Are the Symptoms of Lower Back Pain?

Sure, you will know that you have lower back pain if you feel discomfort in the lower portion of your back. However, the symptoms of this condition vary. It can range from mild to severe and may start suddenly or gradually until it gets worse as time passes by.   

Here are some of the symptoms of lower back pain: 

  • You feel a dull or achy pain in your lower back  
  • You find it difficult to stand up straight  
  • It is hard for you to walk or sit down after standing up 
  • You can’t sit or stand for a long time because it gets painful 
  • Your lower back, pelvis, and hips have muscle spasms, or they tighten 
  • You feel a moving, stingy, and burning pain in your lower back and thighs   

How Do You Manage and Prevent Low Back Pain?

Sometimes, lower back pain gets better on its own. But there are also instances where it gets unbearable that it needs immediate attention from a doctor or physical therapist. Regardless, you can try these steps to help you treat your lower back pain at your home 

1. Move and Stretch

Moving and stretching while you are in pain may sound like a wrong choice, but it is the first thing that most doctors will tell you to do. Don’t worry; you don’t have to do strenuous activities. You can take a 30-minute walk or do yoga.

2. Keep a Healthy Weight

The lower portion of your back supports the upper body. For this reason, it would greatly help to maintain a healthy weight because it will lessen the amount of mechanical force onto your spine. 

3. Try Ice or Heat Therapy

Some people say that cold compress works better than hot compress. However, the results differ and will mostly depend on what will work for you. But in most cases, ice works best if you have swelling or inflammation. Meanwhile, a hot compress will help relieve lower back pain if it’s due to stiff or tight muscles.

4. Maintain a Good Posture

As previously mentioned, good posture is important, and it is one of the best ways to prevent having lower back pain. If you have been slouching your whole life, it will help to use straps, tape, or stretchy bands. This way, you can maintain proper body alignment.  

5. Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy or PEMF machines help lessen pain and inflammation a person may experience, and this includes the lower back. When the machine sends pulsed electromagnetic fields to the body, it will assist in the restoration of your cell’s electromagnetic charges and will then create natural pain relief.
