Lower back pain or lumbago is a musculoskeletal disorder affecting 80% of people at some point in their lives. It is the most common cause of job-related disability, a leading contributor to missed work. It can be either acute, sub-acute or chronic in duration. Fortunately, most occurrences of lower back pain go away within a few days. Others take much longer to resolve or lead to more serious conditions.
Acute or short-term low back pain generally lasts from a few days to a few weeks. Symptoms may range from muscle ache to shooting or stabbing pain, limited flexibility and/or range of motion, or an inability to stand straight. Some acute pain syndromes can become more serious if left untreated.
Chronic back pain is measured by duration. Pain that persists for more than 3 months is considered chronic. It is often progressive and the cause can be difficult to determine.

Quick tips to a healthier back
Following any period of prolonged inactivity, begin a program of regular low-impact exercises. Speed walking, swimming, or stationary bike riding 30 minutes a day can increase muscle strength and flexibility. Yoga can also help stretch and strengthen muscles and improve posture. Ask your physician or orthopedist for a list of low-impact exercises appropriate for your age and designed to strengthen lower back and abdominal muscles.
• Always stretch before exercise or other strenuous physical activity.
• Don’t slouch when standing or sitting. When standing, keep your weight balanced on your feet. Your back supports weight most easily when curvature is reduced.
• At home or work, make sure your work surface is at a comfortable height for you.
• Sit in a chair with good lumbar support and proper position and height for the task. Keep your shoulders back. Switch sitting positions often and periodically walk around the office or gently stretch muscles to relieve tension. A pillow or rolled-up towel placed behind the small of your back can provide some lumbar support. If you must sit for a long period of time, rest your feet on a low stool or a stack of books.
• Wear comfortable, low-heeled shoes.
• Sleep on your side to reduce any curve in your spine. Always sleep on a firm surface.
• Ask for help when transferring an ill or injured family member from a reclining to a sitting position or when moving the patient from a chair to a bed.
• Don’t try to lift objects too heavy for you. Lift with your knees, pull in your stomach muscles, and keep your head down and in line with your straight back. Keep the object close to your body. Do not twist when lifting.
• Maintain proper nutrition and diet to reduce and prevent excessive weight, especially weight around the waistline that taxes lower back muscles. A diet with sufficient daily intake of calcium, phosphorus, and vitamin D helps to promote new bone growth.
• If you smoke, quit. Smoking reduces blood flow to the lower spine and causes the spinal discs to degenerate.

How To Fix Low Back Pain & Sciatica

The SI Joint and Pain Associated with the Lower Back.
Lower back pain, sciatica, and piriformis syndrome are all extremely painful and it seems as though many people have the symptoms related to these conditions, but the methods of relief are all very different.

Robin A. McKenzie was a PT and a specialist in reducing the pain associated with disc issues. The conditions often result in a pain that radiates from the glutes down to the toes and all throughout the leg. The sensation is a tingling or numbing pain that hurts whether you are sitting, standing, walking or even lying down.

The exercise shown in this video is known as the McKenzie press up and has helped to alleviate the pain I had and took the peripheral pain and centralized it to my mid to lower back which is a GOOD SIGN!

End Lower Back Pain: Stretch Routine that Ended 17 Years of Lower Back Pain

End Lower Back Pain: Stretch Routine that Ended 17 Years of Lower Back Pain
I injured my back on three separate occasions in the 90’s, which caused me ongoing lower back pain for years after. Visits to chiropractors aggravated the issue, though the visits also started me in the right direction for recovery. I was eventually assigned a stretch routine, some of which I discarded due to discomfort. I whittled it down to a routine that worked for me, both in what it achieved and in how long it took to do. However, the initial routine never got rid of the pain. One morning, waking up particularly stiff and wondering what the hell I would be like in 10, 20, 30 years from now, I was seriously thinking I needed surgery. I visited a friend that evening, the one who had set me up with her chiropractor. I told her about the thought of surgery as the stretches I had been given weren’t cutting it. I showed her what I was doing, and she suggested one more to add to my routine, and was surprised I hadn’t been shown it by the chiropractor. The next day, I integrated her suggestion into the routine and the moment I did the movement she showed me, my back made a distinct pop-pop sound that has never happened again since, and my lower back pain was gone.

I have to do the routine laid out in this video every morning and evening. It is explained in the video, so no need to be redundant. It has kept me lower back pain free for 2 1/2 years as of this posting. I would think this would be a good routine for people who sit at a desk all day. My original injuries were while I was sitting at my drum set and reached down to raise the snare (1st injury, mid 90’s), again when I reached to raise the tom (2nd injury, late 90’s) and then the kicker in 2000, when I was lifting weights and turned to look at something while holding weights over my head. That time, my legs dropped out from under me and I did not have use of my legs, or anything below my waist, for 4 days and nights, followed by walking with crutches for a week, then a cane.
