WHAT IS Low Back Pain?

The lower back where most back pain occurs includes the five vertebrae in the lumbar region, which supports most of your upper body weight. 

Low back pain is defined as pain in your lower back that can last anywhere from 1 week to months at a time. This pain is considered chronic back pain if it persists for 12 weeks or longer, after an initial injury or underlying cause of low back pain has been treated.

 

SYMPTOMS

Symptoms of low back pain can include:
  • A dull ache to a stabbing or shooting sensation
  • Pain may make it hard to move or stand up straight

Other warning signs include a loss of bowel or bladder control, numbness in the groin area, leg weakness, fever, and pain when coughing or urinating. If you have any of these symptoms along with your back pain it is best to go get checked out.
