Back pain, especially in the lower part, is one of the complaints that often brings a person to see a doctor. This condition can appear in light to severe intensity and limit the sufferer in activities. Not infrequently, this back pain also spreads to the lower leg or other body parts around it.
Here are some common triggers for low back pain:
Muscle aches, often related to muscle spasms or stretching due to overexertion involving repetitive back movements.
Herniation of the nucleus pulposus, which is the sticking of the pads between the vertebrae out of the straight arrangement of the vertebrae. This condition is often related to excessive stretch around the spine, for example when you lift heavy weights while bending over. As a result of this herniation, the nerves around the spine can be compressed.
Arthritis (inflammation of the joints), often associated with degenerative diseases, namely osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis
Any abnormality in the curvature of the spine, for example scoliosis
Osteoporosis (bone loss which causes bones to be prone to fractures or fractures)
Nerve disorders, for example due to diabetes, multiple sclerosis
Deficiency of certain vitamins or minerals
Viral or bacterial infection
Internal organ disorders, such as kidney stones, ovarian cysts, myomas, endometriosis, constipation, hemorrhoids, anal fissures, and so on
Determining what is the best treatment for your case needs to be done by first knowing the cause of the pain. Therefore, it is not sufficient to do this on an online basis alone. You need to also check with a doctor or neurologist directly for further neurological examination. In more serious conditions, doctors will generally recommend that you undergo x-rays, laboratory examinations, CT scans, electromyography, and so on to determine the best treatment.
At this point, all you need to do is:
Apply a temporary pain reliever cream (for example, those containing paracetamol)
Do not over massage back aches
Pay better attention to your posture when you are doing activities, do not bend over too long or lean to one side for too long
Exercise regularly, for example yoga, swimming
Sleep regularly, choose comfortable bedding
Avoid using high heels
Do not over-lift heavy weights
Don't be stressed or sad for a long time
Hope it helps ..
