What is low back pain?

Low back pain can range from mild, dull, annoying pain, to persistent, severe, disabling pain in the lower back. Pain in the lower back can restrict mobility and interfere with normal functioning.

Low back pain is one of the most significant health problems. Consider these statistics from the National Institutes of Health (NIH):

  • Seventy to 85 percent of all people have back pain at some time in their life.
  • Back pain is a common cause of activity limitation in young adults.

Can low back pain be prevented?

The following may help to prevent low back pain:

  • practicing correct lifting techniques
  • maintaining correct posture while sitting, standing, and sleeping
  • exercising regularly (with proper stretching before participation)
  • avoiding smoking
  • maintaining a healthy weight
  • reducing emotional stress which may cause muscle tension

Thank you for seeing me concerning my back injury. I have encountered many Physicians in my 40 years in health care but never anyone so incredible as you. The time you were willing to spend with me explaining in detail your evaluation, your compassion about the pain and your willingness to go beyond the back injury and point out that there was no signs of arthritis showing in my hip area.
