The Lower Back Is Painful When Bending Over Or Changing Positions?
I want to ask, it’s been 2 days, my lower back hurts. Especially when doing bending movements when praying, sitting in chairs, getting up from sleep, moving positions. How do I handle it?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Pain in the lower back can indicate the occurrence of several diseases, including:
Muscle tension. This is common in people who do physical activity in an incorrect position or without stretching / warming up beforehand. Pinched nerve. For people who often bend or lift objects in a position that is not recommended, there can be pressure on the spinal cord and cause pain to radiate from the back to the legs. Kidney disorders. The presence of kidney stones or infection in the urinary tract can cause pain around the waist and lower back.
Our advice, you should check your condition with your doctor to find out which of the possibilities above best represent your condition, or even outside it altogether. Your doctor may then ask you to do urine tests, uric acid level tests, blood tests or maybe X-rays and CT scans if needed.
Meanwhile, avoid physical activities that require you to bend down too much. Because prayer is mandatory, at least avoid activities outside the prayer that involve bending down or lifting weights from below. In addition, to help reduce pain, you can warm the affected area, apply painkillers or take over-the-counter pain medications by reading the instructions listed. Drink lots of water and consume vegetables and fruit, and get adequate rest. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
