About Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain can make it difficult to perform daily functions. The pain can affect bending, twisting, lifting, walking, standing, sitting and sleeping.

Most lower back pain is acute (short-term), lasting a few days to a few weeks. Home remedies, such as resting, ice and heat, and over-the-counter medications can help. Chronic lower back pain is defined as pain that lasts for 12 weeks or more, even after the underlying cause or injury has been treated.

Lower back pain can range in intensity from a dull ache to a sudden sharp pain. It may radiate to the hips, buttocks, legs or feet and can be described in many ways: burning, aching, throbbing, cramping, stabbing, numbness, tingling or weakness.

Diagnosis of Lower Back Pain

Here are a few steps our physicians use when completing their comprehensive exams:

  • We take your complete medical history to identify or rule out possible causes of your pain
  • We conduct a thorough physical exam
  • We carefully review your symptoms, including how you would describe the pain (burning, achy, dull, etc.) and whether certain positions or activities make the pain feel better or worse
  • We may order diagnostic tests, including x-ray, MRI or CT scan, to help us diagnose your chronic pain
