Help With Lower Back Pain-Lower back pain or back pain often occurs in the community. Lower back pain is not just a result of a nervous clamp as many people say, even by many doctors.
The nerve due to the protrusion of the spinal cord (hernia nucleus pulposus = HNP), causes only less than 10% of the low back pain.
Lower back pain is more common due to ligament damage (white veins between bones) in the buttocks, bone fracture cracks and joint damage. Other causes exist but are rare.
Medical treatment varies depending on the cause of back pain diagnosed by the doctor. They may be medications alone, physiotherapy (abdominal and back muscle exercises, spinal traction, LASER etc.), anti-inflammatory or radiofrequency injection with visual c-arm or ultrasound aid, regenerative therapy (PRP and prolotherapy injection), and surgery.
Pelvic ligaments are often a source of pain missed in a doctor’s examination, when in fact very often the cause of lower back pain than other causes. Especially in obese women or have children who are born with a large weight.
Damaged ligaments cause pain in the hips, buttock muscles and pain radiating to the thighs and calves. Broken ligaments become sagging and make the spine unstable, triggering joint damage and spinal cushioning above it and pinching the nerves. Lower back pain like this is treated with prolotherapy injection.
In patients with lower back pain, in addition to prolotherapy injection, spinal biomechanics should also be improved. Patients with lower back pain should know the way of daily activities are safe for the spine, such as how to lift items from the floor or computer position and how to sit in the right workplace. Abdominal muscles and unbalanced back muscles should be strengthened or stretched and trained to stabilize the spine so that back pain is not repeated.
