Frequently Asked Questions About Low Back Pain

Low back pain can cause you to be uncomfortable. However, while this condition is fairly common, many people don´t know much about it. If you are having lower back pain, you may find yourself with many questions. Here are some frequently asked questions you may have about back pain.

What Causes Back Pain?

There are many reasons why your back can be bothering you. You can twist it the wrong way, sleep on it wrong, hurt it in a car accident, hurt it while lifting something or simply bend over the wrong way.

What Home Treatments Should I Try for Back Pain?

If you are experiencing low back pain, you will want to try to treat it at home unless the pain is excruciating. Placing ice on your back can reduce the swelling. A heating pad can improve blood flow, which can help improve the pain. Over the counter pain medications or anti-inflammatory medication can temporarily provide you with relief so you can sleep or stretch. Or, having a family member lightly rub or massage your back can help reduce pain.

When Should I Seek Medical Care for Low Back Pain?

There are no hard and fast rules as to when you should seek medical attention for low back pain. You should seek medical care for back pain when you feel it is warranted. If the pain is intolerable, then you should seek care immediately. If home treatment isn´t helping and the pain is not improving within a few days, it´s probably a good idea to seek treatment. If the pain does not go away in a reasonable amount of time, then go see your doctor or chiropractor so they can help determine how extensive the problem is and help you to heal.
