Several conditions can cause low back pain and these complaints are often felt by everyone with different pain intensities. Pain in the waist is pain that is felt in any part of the lumbar bone that is felt around the lumbar bone, which can involve structures such as speeding, muscle, nerve and so on with the intensity of mild to severe pain.
Low back pain that occurs after a caesarean section can also occur due to muscle activity that is not perfect after a break during the recovery period. Usually a woman's post-operative Caesarean takes several days to rest. In addition, the effects of back anesthesia can also cause low back pain in some people.
But the low back pain that you experience can also be caused by other causes. Low back pain that is felt for days is also called acute low back pain, chronic back pain that is low back pain that can be felt for months. Various types of causes of low back pain in general, namely:
