Lower Back Pain

What causes your low back pain and how can you feel better?

Also known as lower back pain and lumbar spine pain, low back pain may occur on its own, or with upper (thoracic) and/or neck (cervical) regions of the spine. Pain originating in this part of the back can be scary, and can severely diminish your quality of life for days, weeks, or more. Herniated discs, compression fractures and postural disorders are the most common causes of lower back pain.

Common Questions

Will I have back pain all my life now?

Many people with back pain are able to resume their normal activities after treatment. You’ll want to speak with a SpineOne physician to strategize your particular treatment plan and get back into the swing of things.

What can I do to relieve the back pain at home?

Depending upon the underlying cause and the severity of your back pain, there are a number of things that you can do to help with your pain. We highly recommend talking with your doctor and physical therapist on the exercises, stretching and activities that can help alleviate your back pain.

How long will it take for the pain to stop?

Most all patients want to know how long it may take for them to feel better during treatment. The fact is there are a number of variables that will affect healing time, including the underlying cause of the back pain; the physical therapy regimen; how each patient responds to the treatment; and if the patient follows the doctor/physical therapist’s advice on physical activities.
