Lower Back pain


lower back pain right side

Right side lower back pain which is also referred to as Sacro-Iliac pain is one of the most common forms of back problems. Combined with the fact that a few of spinal joints may tighten and the pelvis being out of balance can cause a tremendous amount of pain. There is a muscle in the lower back called the Quadratus Lumborum which runs from the base of the ribs right to the top of the pelvis area and this can develop trigger points, these in turn may refer the pain to the lower areas of a back. However, the main source of the pain comes from the Sacro-Iliac.n
Pain usually develops between the Sacrum and the Pelvis in right side lower back pain. Because there is no disc to offer protection and a person strains their backs, this joint moves badly and causes the person to experience sharp pain across their backs. Muscles in the lower back help support the spine and therefore posture, they also provide strength and let a person lift things up and move around freely. Trigger points which are tight knotted muscle fibres defer pain away from the spine and the muscles around the spine tighten in the back when the spine is strained in any way.n
Muscles located around buttocks also play a vital role in how the back works. They provide strength to both the lower back and to the thighs. It is important to understand which of these is causing the pain when suffering from back pain. However, the smaller muscles that attach each vertebra to another one also support all joint movement. If a person strains their spine in this area of their backs, it is these muscles that give sharp back pains and joint stiffness, but the pain is more localised so easier to detect much faster.n
Due to the fact that the Sacro-Iliac joint has no disc it is more vulnerable to strain or damage. As the joint tightens muscles and ligament also tighten so the pain actually radiates up the back or even down into the buttocks. It is known that the cause of all back pain is by four main factors and these are joint movement, pelvic imbalance, tight muscles and weak muscles. It is more likely to be an imbalance within the pelvis which causes lower back pain.n
Any lower back pain should be investigated to make sure there are no underlying root causes to the problem and any back pain should be treated to avoid chronic pain problems developing at a later date. If it is the Sacro-Iliac joint that has been strained the discomfort can be very severe but it is not a serious condition that needs specific treatment or invasive surgery. There is no risk of disc damage as there isn't a disc on this joint. Doctors recommend a couple of days rest as well as taking pain relief tablets which sufferers can buy over the counter. In some cases a doctor may prescribe stronger medication but will keep a close eye on the patients' progress as the medication should only be prescribed for short periods of time.n
It is highly recommended that anyone suffering with lower back pain should keep as active as possible as quickly as possible. Two days rest is enough and with anti-inflammatory medication, a person should be able to move around without too much pain. Doctors and back specialists much prefer to avoid chemical-based drugs to treat such pain and recommend a course of therapeutic treatments instead. Right side lower back pain can be intense but with over the counter medication, a little rest, therapy in the form of visits to a chiropractor and a daily exercise routine are the best way of dealing with the condition.n
