Low back ache- how to control?
Hello, my friend presented with a slight forward bend of his lower back. His range of motion was restricted in all planes but most significantly in extension (bending lower back backwards or straightening up) due to pain. His lower back and gluteal muscles were tense and tender to touch. All other orthopedic and neurological testing was normal. What to do, please suggest.
@amritangshu Chiropractic spinal adjustments to restore lower back spinal range of motion and remove misalignments that exist between vertebrae
Interferential current therapy to remove muscle tension/spasm
Soft tissue treatment to restore spinal muscle health
Passive stretching of the lower back
Ice therapy to reduce inflammation in the affected areas of the spine
Complete home care program inclusive of ice application, stretching, mobility exercises,
and postural re-education
@ajaad LBA (low back pain) is a common presentation and the spectrum of severity varies from a simple muscular spasm to annular tear to Disc extrusion and prolapse.
Initial back pain can be relieved by rest analgesics and lifestyle changes. But it is always advised to consult medical experts for the proper diagnosis and management.
for now, take a rest for 3 days, use hot bags, avoid bending and then seek a doctor for proper evaluation. Thanks
