Why Do I Have Chronic Lower Back Pain

Low back pain is caused by injury to a muscle (strain) or ligament (sprain). Common causes include improper lifting, poor posture, lack of regular exercise, fracture, ruptured disk, or arthritis. Often, the only symptom is pain in the lower back.

Most low back pain goes away on its own in two to four weeks. Physical therapy and pain relievers can help. A few cases may require surgery.

Why does my lower back hurt all the time?

Lower back pain is a common cause for visits to the doctor office. Most low back pain is the result of an injury, such as muscle sprains or strains due to sudden movements.  Chronic lower back pain can be from poor body mechanics while lifting or be the result of certain diseases, such as: cancer of the spine.

How to relieve chronic lower back pain?

Analgesics, anti-inflammatory drugs, muscle relaxants and other medications can be used to help control chronic back pain. Physical therapy for chronic back pain may include:

  1. Retraining your posture
  2. Testing the limits of pain tolerance.
  3. Stretching and flexibility exercises
  4. Aerobic exercises
  5. Core strengthening
