There are many reasons why we may experience lower back pain. Some of the reasons that cause lower back pain are things like traumatic accidents, slip and falls, reaching for something, picking up an item without using the proper mechanics and poor posture. Injuries include herniated discs, fractures to the vertebrae, facet problems, spondylolesthesis, degenerate disc disease, arthritis and others. One of the most important things you can do is learn all that you can about your injury. Learn what muscles groups are involved, what positions make your pain worse, what stretches can help alleviate pain, whether ice or heat is better
Repetitive stress or strain is another major reason why people have lower back pain. A person may pick up something that weighs 1 ½ pounds 40 times a day with bad mechanics and one day his/her lower back "goes out" and they will experience lower back pain. It was not the weight that caused the person to have lower back pain, rather the poor mechanics the person was using to lift the light weight. It's like the old saying, the straw that broke the camel's back. That's why it is important to learn good body mechanics and avoid repetitive stress situations and injuries
Disc herniations are another major cause of lower back pain. A disc can herniate for a number of reasons including trauma, twisting and forward flexing type activities and poor body mechanics to name a few. When a disc herniates, the outer wall of the disc is compromised and the disc material begins leaking out. One of the worst positions for the spine, especially when you have a herniated disc is forward flexion and rotation which can cause the leak to increase even more
Once the disc material begins leaking out, it can put pressure on your sensory nerves which in turn will cause pain. If the material continues to leak out, it could also affect your motor nerves which mean that your muscle strength and coordination will be affected. A microdisectomy procedure will remove only the disc material that has already leaked out. A laminectomy procedure will remove part of the bone, lamina, to provide more room for the disc material to be without putting increased pressure on the sensory http://lower-backpain.blogspot.com
