Effective Treatment for Lower Back Pain
Lower back pain can vary in its intensity, from minor yet ever-there discomfort to intense, shooting pain. It can develop gradually as we age or as a result of an accident or injury.
Acute lower back pain is generally short-term and is resolved with effective treatment without loss of function. Chronic pain, on the other hand, is a long-term and more severe version of lower back pain.

What Causes Lower Back Pain?
Lower back pain is typically a result of an injury or an accident, though as mentioned it can also develop gradually as we age. Strains of our ligaments and muscles in our lower back can occur due to excess activity or injuries (such as sporting or work-place injuries).
Another common cause of lower back pain is disc injuries, such as a herniated disc. Other potential causes of lower back pain include conditions such as sciatica, spinal stenosis, and abnormal spine curvatures.
The symptoms of lower back pain include achy pain, burning pain, muscle spasms and tightness, and difficulty standing up straight or walking. Many people experience lower back pain that worsens after prolonged periods of standing or sitting. Discomfort may also be experienced when standing up, sitting down, or getting out of bed.
Physical Therapy for Lower Back Pain
Physical therapy is highly effective in treating lower back pain and the underlying causes. As well as decreased pain and improved movement, physical therapy reduces the likelihood of further injury. Physical therapy can restore mobility and eliminate the need for further medical treatment, such as surgery.
