LOW BACK

Low back pain refers to a sensation of discomfort or distress localized in the lumbar region, which encompasses the lower part of the spine, extending from the ribcage to the pelvis. Individuals experiencing low back pain may describe sensations of aching, stiffness, or soreness in the muscles, ligaments, or joints of the lower back. The intensity of the pain can range from a dull, persistent ache to sharp, acute discomfort. Activities such as lifting, bending, or prolonged sitting may exacerbate the pain. In some instances, low back pain may be accompanied by radiating sensations into the buttocks or legs, commonly referred to as sciatica, and may involve tingling or numbness. Causes of low back pain are diverse, including muscle strain, ligament sprains, disc herniation, spinal stenosis, or underlying medical conditions, necessitating a comprehensive evaluation for an accurate diagnosis and tailored treatment plan.

A few notable low back conditions:

Lumbar Strain or Sprain

Overstretching or tearing of muscles or ligaments in the lower back, often due to lifting heavy objects or sudden movements.

Herniated Disc
(Lumbar Disc Herniation)

The rupture or bulging of intervertebral discs in the lower back, which may press on nerves and cause pain.

Degenerative Disc Disease

Age-related wear and tear on the intervertebral discs, leading to pain, stiffness, and reduced flexibility.

Spinal Stenosis

Narrowing of the spinal canal, which can put pressure on the spinal cord or nerves, resulting in pain and discomfort.

Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction

Disruption or inflammation of the sacroiliac joint, which connects the sacrum (the triangular bone at the base of the spine) to the pelvis.

Facet Joint Syndrome

Irritation or inflammation of the small joints between the vertebrae in the spine.

Muscle Imbalances

Weakness or imbalance in the muscles supporting the spine, contributing to poor posture and low back pain.

Ankylosing Spondylitis

A type of inflammatory arthritis affecting the spine, leading to pain and stiffness in the lower back.

Spondylolisthesis

Forward slippage of one vertebra over another, often causing lower back pain and stiffness.

Sciatica

Compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve, typically causing pain that radiates from the lower back down the back of the leg.

Testimonial

Before I came to Sin Osteopathic, I was suffering from severe low back pain. The feeling was as if there was a pinching sensation at the low back. During my first treatment, I received spinal manipulation and acupuncture. By my third follow-up, I felt that my pain is almost gone, and I could start bending and turning without feeling the pinching sensation at my low back. I find it incredibly amazing that my condition recovered without having to take pain killers or undergo any surgery. I highly recommend this clinic to my friends and family.
I had a bad injury at my back, the pain was unbearable for months. There was also a moment when I could not even turn my back from sleep to sitting position. I can't even wear pants, had difficulty to wash my back and during pass motion. My first visit to Sin Osteopathic was worth it. I was up on my feet again and I continued for my second visit, I was much better though still some pain but I am back to normal walking, sleeping, squatting and bending!
