Almost everyone has had pain in the lower back at least once. For many people low back pain is a recurring problem but it goes away quickly. But for some people, low back pain is a nagging and sometimes excruciating problem.
The most common cause of low back problems is over-stretching of the muscles, tendons and ligaments. This leads to inflammation and swelling. Inflammation and swelling contribute to pain.
It's the same process involved when a muscle is strained (a pulled muscle) or a joint is sprained anywhere else in the body. One reason why low back strains and sprains become chronic is that it takes a high level of individual discipline to manage the problem.
The key to minimizing back pain is prevention of the initial occurrence or prevention of recurrence. Prevention requires bending over correctly whenever anything (including a feather) is picked up. Because a person picks up about half of his or her body weight (even when he or she picks up a feather) all bending can cause problems if done improperly.
The general rule for bending over is to bend the knees and keep the back straight. Recent evidence indicates that a forward bend of a few degrees may decrease stress on the lower back even more.
Whenever picking anything up, hold the object as close to the body as possible. Bending and twisting at the same time will make matters worse. Position the object straight in front of you, pick it up, and then move over before placing it down.
If a person is overweight, losing the extra pounds decreases extra stress on the back. It's best to lose weight with exercise and diet. As part of the exercise program, exercises that build abdominal and back muscles may also contribute to prevention.
Sitting improperly for prolonged periods of time can be one of the worst things a person can do for their back. Also, changing positions slightly and, better yet, standing up and stretching every 20 minutes to 30 minutes may relieve a great deal of stress on the back.
How a person sleepscan have a lot of influence on back pain. Sleep so that the back is kept relatively straight. The best position anatomically is lying on the back with the legs slightly bent and supported by a pillow.
Some people find this position "unnatural" at first. Some people, too, find the position uncomfortable because that's the position in which they snore.
If snoring is not a problem, many people find that after a week or two of trying, they adjust to sleeping on their back and it becomes "natural".
For those that can't adjust, the next best position is lying on the side with the legs curled up as in the fetal position.
Whatever position is used, even if sleeping on the stomach is the only way to prevent insomnia, sleeping on a firm surface will help. Three ways to accomplish this are:
1. Having a firm mattress and box springs.
2. Placing the mattress on the floor.
3. Putting boards or plywood under the mattress (one-half inch thickness will probably be enough).
Essential to treatment is determining if the problem is a mild case of low back strain/sprain or whether other structures are involved (such as the sciatic nerve, the vertebrae, or a disc between the vertebrae).
The symptoms alone often give a good indication of whether or not any of the above are involved. However, a physician may recommend X-rays to help determine the extent and degree of problems.
For simple low back strain/sprain all of the actions indicated for prevention are important for treatment as well, especially for long-term treatment directed at prevention of recurrence.
During the early stages of recovery from an episode of back strain/sprain, it's also important not to do exercises that cause pain.
For the most severe cases, lying on the back most of one or two days may be beneficial. This is a change from what used to be recommended (seven days) because it has been found that prolonged inactivity adds little or nothing to healing and can even cause muscle weakness and further problems.
Anti-inflammatory medications may help control pain and swelling. Many people find that over-the-counter medications, such as aspirin and ibuprophen, are effective. For some, prescription anti-inflammatory medications are recommended for relief.
For cases of severe pain, physicians sometimes recommend codeine.
But, like all opiates, codeine needs to be used wisely, if at all. It can cause unwanted side effects such a nausea and there is a potential for addiction.
Also, complete elimination of pain may be unhealthy since the body uses pain as a reminder to protect an injured part. If eliminated, it's more likely that too much stress will be placed on the back during the time it is trying to heal.
Two effective ways to decrease pain without medications are graded
stretching and zonal meditation. Although closely related, they are slightly different.
During zonal medication, a person relaxes the whole mind and body, using deep, abdominal breathing. Mentally, they picture the area (zone) of pain or discomfort (the lower back in this case).
He or she focuses on the pain and allows the mind and body to relax that specific area. As the person does this relaxation exercise, he or she finds that the pain begins to subside (the body is telling the mind that the person is on the right track). He or she continue the process, a small step at a time.
If you try this meditation, don't rush. Don't give up easily. And don't force yourself. Relaxation is the key. Each time you try it, it will become easier to do and will become more effective.
Graded stretching uses zonal meditation in combination with gently stretching the muscles of the back and buttocks. Practicing zonal meditation while doing the stretching described below has been helpful for some people.
(If you suspect that you have an injury, or if you have an undiagnosed or diagnosed medical condition, call or see your physician before trying these stretching exercises. Your physician can help you assess the benefits, risks and costs of treatment alternatives.)
Graded stretching requires the individual to lie flat on a very hard surface (the floor is a great place). Knees should be bent, and feet should be flat on the ground. The buttocks should be adjusted to allow the lower back to slowly touch the floor.
If -- at any point -- pain increases, stop. Listen to your body. Practice only the relaxation exercises.
The second stage entails slowly lowering one leg to the flat position while gently pulling the opposite knee toward the chest.
As the knee is pulled close, there will be an increased sensation of stretching and mild discomfort. When this occurs, stop and practice zonal meditation.
The relaxation component is the most important part. Never pull the knee to cause significant discomfort. In each subsequent session, the knee will usually be able to be brought closer to the chest without discomfort.
After doing one knee, return the legs and feet to the original position and rest for a moment. Then repeat the same sequence with the other knee. Complete the cycle twice for each side.
Low back muscle strains and sprains can be effectively prevented. In most cases, treatment can bring rapid relief and prevention of recurrence.
When other structure of the back are involved, the treatment may require more drastic measures including surgery. Sometimes, what started out being strain or sprain progresses to something more severe including the herniation of a disc or involvement of the sciatic nerve (sciatica).
The primary symptom of both of these problems is the radiation of pain down through the buttocks and into the legs. If this occurs, whether initially or after the initial onset of pain, further evaluation by a health professional may be beneficial.
Constipation can cause back pain..Drinking canned aspargus tips cold...put in
blender add can of water.....tastes good....and is said to dissolve fatty tumors in colon. Drink once a day occasionally. (Too much aspargus can
create oxalic acid build up in kidneys.)
