Lower Back Pain - There are many causes of low back pain including muscular/structural imbalances, decreased strength, poor body mechanics, and poor work ergonomics. As the lower back is subject to the repetitive stresses of daily life and occasional injury, it may respond by showing symptoms of wear and tear. These symptoms may be pain around the waistline and/or lower extremities, and possibly, numbness and tingling to the lower extremities. If any of these symptoms persist or worsen, seek immediate medical attention. A program emphasizing proper body mechanics, aerobic conditioning, lumbar stabilization, core strengthening, and patient education is the key to eliminating and preventing low back pain.
