Low Back Pain – Integrated Pain Solutions

Low back pain, or lumbago, is a common musculoskeletal disorder. At some point in their lives, 40% of people have been affected by low back pain. It is broken down by the duration of the pain; acute, sub-chronic and chronic.

Most episodes of low back pain are caused by mechanical problems like muscle or joint strain. With acute back pain, pain develops after movements that involve lifting, twisting, or forward-bending. Sometimes, you may not feel the symptoms until the following morning. Pain can be described as tenderness at a particular point to diffuse pain. It may or may not worsen with certain movements, such as raising a leg, or positions, such as sitting or standing. Pain radiating down the legs (known as sciatica) may be present.

Chronic low back pain is associated with sleep problems, including a greater amount of time needed to fall asleep, disturbances during sleep, a shorter duration of sleep, and less satisfaction with sleep. In addition, a majority of those with chronic low back pain show symptoms of depression or anxiety.
