Lower back pain is a common problem that severely impacts the quality of your life. It can limit your ability to be active. It can make you to miss work. Many different causes may lead to pain in your lower back.
Why Does Lower Back Pain Occur?
Lower Back Pain may originate from an injury to the sciatic nerve, which extends from the lower back to the buttock and into each leg. A lumbar herniated disc, on the other hand, may also result in severe lower back pain. This happens when a disc in the lower back herniates and pinches the contiguous nerve root. These two conditions can cause people to experience severe lower back pain, lower extremity weakness, numbness in the upper thighs, and even loss of bladder or bowel control among other symptoms. The cause of lower back pain can occur during many different situations, such as: strenuous activity, hard physical contact with other people, a hard fall, long periods of bending over, and even a rollercoaster can cause issues with the lower back.

How Does The Advanced Pain Relief Institute Assess Lower Back Pain?
Assessing a patient with lower back pain may require an X-Ray, an MRI, and a physical examination by a doctor. Assessing the pain is actually one of most difficult things to do for doctors because it’s about communication, and establishing a dialogue about pain between the patient and doctor can be challenging based on the amount of information to obtain in a short amount of time. For instance, a typical assessment will begin with consulting your health history. Doctors will want to know if the pain is intermittent or constant, the kind of pain (e.g., stabbing, burning), pain triggers, when pain is more likely to occur during the day, and how much pain you are in on a scale of 0-10. After establishing a dialogue of your situation and understanding the extent of your pain, doctors will inquire about previous treatments and any medications you are taking. Some doctors may ask you to keep a journal of the pain that details when you have pain and the types of pain that occur. This will help them better understand the patterns of your condition. A good assessment will help doctors understand what type of treatment will best suit you to relieve the amount of stress you have.
