Lower Back Pain

Lower Back Pain

More than just an ache.

Lower back pain is a common ailment that can affect anyone at least once in their lifetime, and our clinic in Wetherill Park has seen firsthand that it’s the cause of the majority of presentations we receive.

There are two types of lower back pain: general and specific. General lower back pain is usually mechanical in nature and not caused by a single factor. It can account for most cases of lower back pain and is often due to abnormal body mechanics, injuries, or strenuous physical activity. 

In contrast, specific lower back pain can usually be attributed to a particular cause or spinal condition. This type of pain can result from various conditions such as sciatica, disc injuries (like herniation, protrusion, or rupture), spinal stenosis, fractures, arthritis, skeletal and bony irregularities, or even tumors. 

Don’t let lower back pain hold you back from living life to the fullest. If you’re experiencing discomfort, our team in Wetherill Park is here to help you find the relief you need, so you can get back to enjoying life without limitation. 

Lower back pain: more than just an ache

Here are some common signs and symptoms of lower back pain:

  • Dull or sharp pain in the lower back area
  • Stiffness in the lower back muscles
  • Difficulty standing up straight or sitting down
  • Pain that radiates down the legs (also known as sciatica)
  • Muscle spasms in the lower back
  • Pain that worsens with physical activity or prolonged periods of sitting or standing
  • Limited range of motion in the lower back
  • Pain that improves with rest or changes in position
  • Tingling or numbness in the legs or feet

It’s important to note that symptoms can vary from person to person, and that if you’re experiencing any of the above symptoms, our experts here at Health Collab can help determine the underlying cause of your pain.
