Lower back pain therapy

Common Questions and Answers about Lower back pain therapy


Avatar f tn I am an 18 year old female and have had on and off lower back pain for about 2 years. It is a spasm feeling. I am thin, but my stomach and core are not in very good shape. I do not exercise as much as I should.. I went to see an orthopedic doctor. He told me I have poor posture, and that I "hunch back". He took two x-rays and discovered I have scoliosis in my lower back. He told me, however, that it was mild and that he did not think it was the cause of my back pain.
Avatar f tn Hi. I'm 29 and I've had lower back problems and pain since I was about 8 years old. I went to see a neurologist and he sent me for an MRI. He got the results back and I have 2 bulging discs and one is pinching my s1 nerve and the other is pinching the s2 nerve, and I have arthritis in my lower back. He told me to do physical therapy but ever since I have been doing the physical therapy it's only been making it hurt worse.
503444 tn?1210341950 There can be nerve irritation causing muscle spasms leading to stiff back and restriction in your low back motion. Try to get some physical therapy and massage therapy. Apply pain gel gently and hot foment. Continue using hard bed and stretches. If pain still causes discomfort, consult a orthopedic doctor for evaluation and investigation if necessary like a x- ray or MRI back. Take care and share your thoughts.

Avatar f tn I have had some back pain in the past and recently had some lower back pains. Now my back keeps popping (never had this before), it doesn't really hurt when it pops but very uncomfortable. Sometimes I'm feeling a pain between my stomach and abdomen area.
457721 tn?1256640798 For about the past two months I have had the most horrible lower back pain that I have had since my car accident. I have been unable to bend over and have had to squat at the knees just to pick my daughter up. This morning I was bending over to pick up a pile of laundry and I felt (and heard) a LARGE pop in my lower back. About 5 minutes later my back became very swollen and I am finding it painful just to walk now.

Avatar f tn I am 18 weeks pregnant and my lower back is killing me. I get shooting pains that are almost unbearable. .. any advice on what i can do to get some relief. N pain pills are not an option for me so ty for any other help...
Avatar n tn My 20 year old son was recently dignosed with a pruding disk in his lower back. After seeing several doctors, one scheduled him for an epidural. It has been 2 weeks and the epidural may have relieved the pain by about 50% (per patient). Now the doctor recommends that he go see a specialist because he is not getting any better! I do not feel that surgery should be an option at this time. However, I am not a doctor and I do want him to be better.

403156 tn?1290150018 Out of nowhere today, I got an extreme pain in my lower back. I cannot stand up straight and it hurts to walk, particularly when I take a step with my left leg. I am kind of leaning to the right and people at work commented this - I ultimately had to go home early. I took 1000mg of motrin, I know that is excessive, but even that has not done anything for the pain. I tried lying down and I could barely get up out of bed - it took me a few minutes.
Avatar f tn Two days ago I began experiencing pain in the lower right side of my back. The pain is also present in my right hip and partially down my right thigh. When I put weight on my right leg the pain becomes worse. Sitting and lying down can be uncomfortable at times. Certain movements also seem to make it worse.

I called the on call doctor and they said I must have pulled a muscle however I know what that feel like and it doesn't feel like a pulled muscle. First what can I do to help with the pain and second what could be causing the pain? I know you aren't doctors but I am just looking for suggestions on what could be going on so I can ask more informed questions to the doctor.
Avatar f tn I have chronic pain in my right leg and right foot to the point I have stopped running/exercising. The pain is a deep pain and very achy. Also at times the skin will have different sensations from one part of say the calf to the other side of the calf. I have had the pain for 8 to 9 years and when the pain first started it was primarily in the thigh I had a bone scan and MRI and found nothing. The pain in the foot is most aggrevating and has caused me to alter my exercising.

Avatar m tn Hello, I have for a couple of weeks been having a little bit of pain in my lower back - not much that has worried me, I just thought I might have slept funny - until 3 days ago, when my back has gone into complete agony - i am finding it hard to even stand up, iv had a bit of a bug - had diahorea for a couple of days and now I feel completely worn out, but it feels like there is a certain point on my lower spine that whenever I touch it , it feels like an electric shock and this is where it is
Avatar f tn A strong gentle traction is created along the spine as gravity forces each end to move apart around the pivot point. Ideal for lower back pain relief or pre-activity warm up. I bought this direct from the company and it's great. I paid about $250. plus shipping takes about 10 minutes to put together.
