Lumbago On The Left Side After Sitting Down?
hi, my name is titaa on January 31, 2019 I was hit by a car from behind and my fall position at that time was sitting. Then I started to go to the massage therapist around March / April because my position was outside the city at that time. His first complaint was pain in the coccyx / back and was very uncomfortable when bending. I am counted as a child who is supple one of my dependents, but then it hurts then and now (like there is pressure), another example is the position of lifting my head in a sleeping position in yoga (sorry for the name), this position used to feel normal, but when that and now it hurts so much why. Continue to my left heel when not in the position of stepping / stepping / standing, I mean when I just wake up and then stand up, stepping foot first on the floor like there is a pull on the left heel.
Complaints of left waist pain that you experience can be related to the history of the injury you experienced before. Collision in the waist or sitting down can cause bruising, bone displacement, or cracks and fractures in the coccyx, and disruption of the spinal cord.
But in addition to the effects of previous injuries, complaints of low back pain that you experience can also be caused by several other conditions, including:
Narrowing of the spine
Female reproductive disorders: cysts, endometriosis, myomas
Effect of pregnancy
As your complaint reappears after a few months, I suggest that you see a doctor directly so that further tests can be carried out if necessary by X-ray and ultrasound to determine the cause of your complaint. If the cause is confirmed, then the doctor can give you more appropriate treatment. Handling will be adjusted to the results of the examination, both with drugs, physiotherapy, and surgery if needed. If there are cost constraints, you can consider applying for health insurance, for example BPJS.
While waiting to see a doctor, you can do the following tips:
Get enough rest
Warm compresses on the painful part
Take pain medication if necessary
Exercise regularly, but don't overdo it
Apply a pain reliever / cream if necessary
Sit with a soft pillow
Avoid sitting or standing for too long
Hope it helps you,
