Low Back Pain

Low back is the portion between the upper and lower body and bears most of the body weight. It is therefore not surprising that a lot of us get low back pains.

The common causes of back pain include:

  • Injury
  • Disc herniation
  • Age
  • Compression fracture
  • Arthritis
  • Obesity
  • Lack of exercise
  • Depression

    Walking and maintaining good posture help with back pain. For more severe pain, a physical therapist may recommend specific exercises. Massage and acupuncture also help. Antidepressants aid in cases where back pain is due to depression. When these alternatives fail or when there is a structural deformity of the back or spine, surgery may be recommended.
